Re: PartDesign Sweep along 2 sketches/paths

I'd appreciate a more efficient (shorter) way for future projects. In PartDesign-- Delete all but the pad. You only need one sketch. Fillet the outside corners. Apply the thickness tool by selecting the bottom and the end faces. Picture1.png OS: Windows 10 (10.0) Word size of OS: 64-bit Word size o...

Re: How to decide between using volumes via the Part WB and using sketches via the Part Design WB?

Is it a question of preference whether to use volumes with the Part WB or sketches which are then padded via the Part Design WB These represent the two fundamental methods of solid modeling. The Part workbench is intended for constructive solid modeling using primitives and boolean operations. Part...

Re: Check Geometry: Shell Not Connected

All look good in 3D display but I get this Check Geometry error. Change Refine to false for each feature and it should check OK.

You can create a single body and color individual faces.

Re: Union Help

Just not sure how to deal with it? The loft mirror is an invalid solid so it is likely to fail fusion. Always use Part > check geometry if you have problems. Try to loft between 0 and 1 sketch then another loft between 1, 3, and Sketch004. Mirror both lofts and you should get a valid solid. Then yo...

Re: Assembly4's Animate Assembly not showing movement

IIRC the master sketch must be in Model not the Parts folder.

Re: AR15 Modeling Lower Receiver

Let me know what you think Most excellent model, quite complicated. Thank you for sharing. What version of FreeCAD are you using? I always like to see FreeCAD challenged by an experienced modeller. I enjoyed your video once slowed down to 25% speed. :) I am curious why you seemed to bounce back and...

Re: V0.19 Benchmarking--Intermediate Level Tutorials

...groove to shape the arms,... Yeah, if I were to model it again I would use the groove tool instead of a boolean of two bodies. That is where my model fails geometry check, probably because of co-planar faces. If I slightly increase the outer radius of the revolve so that it is not tangent to the...
