Re: GSOC 2020 has been Green Lit! (Voice your opinion and ideas about what to propose for the next gsoc)

I really like the idea of a sophisticated measuring tool I hope this goes ahead, can't code, can test.

Re: Looking to extrude two solids

As the error message points out only single contiguous solids are supported in a body.
You can put each solid in its own body and put the bodies in a part container. It depends on what your end goals are I suppose.

Re: Wanting to 'pad' a part

No that is not correct, you may have many geometries described, but you may only have one level of nesting. In other words a plate with half a dozen holes is fine, because it clear what is solid and what is space, and the outcome of the operation results in a single contiguous solid. Three concentri...

Re: Wanting to 'pad' a part

To save you some learning please accept this file, it is parametric. To change the parameters to suit your needs, select sketch in the tree view, scroll down to data view, expand 'constraints' and then change the dimensions as required.

Re: Wanting to 'pad' a part

Converting all three circles to normal lines will also give problems. If you were manufacturing the blade from a single square billet, you would machine it in stages wouldn't you? CAD is no different, create a pad that represents the plate, pocket an arbour into it, then pad the teeth thickness. Do...

Re: Wanting to 'pad' a part

I think you have already been told that it is not possible to create a solid from three concentric circles..... try to pad a sketch that contains just one, then try two!
