Re: modeling a flexible ribbon, bending in one plane, with variable cross-section

It would be helpful if you posted an actual image of what you are trying to do. I looked at the referenced PDF, and I think I understand, but perhaps not. From what I saw, the resulting model will need to be some sort of composite of parts. I do not know of any tool in FreeCAD that can split the cab...

Re: Body not updating after change sketch

I am not sure how you did it, but somehow Sketch 3 is attached to itself. Gene I also don't know how I created this :roll: But could you tell me how to switch on the view for the 'Support'? If I select the same parts then I don't even see the entry 'support'. Glad you got it sorted out. I suspect y...

Re: Export STEP

It is not intuitive for me to have to change settings in the program's preferenće menu. Why this is in the Preferences menu? There is no data, of course, but I believe that most users will almost always use the same settings for Step export and import. That is why it makes sense to have a preferenc...

Re: Body not updating after change sketch

I am not sure how you did it, but somehow Sketch 3 is attached to itself. Sketch 3.jpg You can delete Sketch003 (Sketch_TriangleProfile) from Support and just let it float for the moment. It should ultimately be attached to a base plane or a datum plane for stability. You will see that the DAG error...

You probably didn't save before upload. There is no mirror in the file.
Sorry, I merely posted the files referenced. I did not even open FreeCAD.

Re: Body not updating after change sketch

I could not open the rar files. All my attempts with various programs result in "Not a RAR archive". I suggest you re-output the FCStd file using maximum compression. From the main menu: Edit > Preferences > General > Document > Document Save Compression Level That should make the file small enough ...

Re: Can I crete a sketch on a mirrored part?

It is much easier for potential helpers if you directly attach images and FCStd files to your request for help. Just use the "Attachments" tab to include your files in your post.
