Re: Cannot difference CSG cones that start outside shape

Okay, we need someone to test in the patest update of the current dev version of FreeCAD 0.19.

Since Ubuntu move to snaps packaging I couldn't get the daily version to work, only tried once, have not tried again, my current machine is still on 18.04.

Re: App.Document has no attribute 'Z'

your first post, welcome to FreeCAD.

I don't know what the problem is but I suggest you try it in the latest snapshot release of FreeCAD 0.19, FEM has been developed a lot since 0.18 was released.

Re: Faces of STL to merge for Rendering

One thing you can do that may be a work around, start with a solid (not a mesh) go to Draft WB, click on the solid and then click "down grade" this will produce a set of separate faces that are new copies of the faces of the original solid. You must do this on the solid first (so you can get a cylin...

I think it would be a great feature request to have a choise between inner and outer circle
Good idea, would make it consistent with Draft Polygon. Perhaps you could add Part Polygon to the same feature request.

Re: Creating prism knowing inner circle radius

If you set the circumradius to inradius / cos(180 / n) where inradius is the desired inradius and n is the number of edges it should calculate the appropriate circumradius to get the desired size. While obviously that makes the most sense, another method for a bit of fun or perhaps for the less mat...

Re: New bug (I guess)

If the compiler is going to give an error when I'm going to use symmetry function is there any other function I can use like equidistancy? The best solution is to keep your symmetry but remove the horizontal constraint. You can check the "Auto remove redundant" option so the solver will do it for y...

Re: New bug (I guess)

It seems to be a change in behaviour in the code over the last 5 years, I am not sure if it is intentional or not but I think it is. Logically I would have thought a line could be symmetrical to an axis without needing to be perpendicular to it, but symmetry constrain forced the line to be perpendi...

Re: New bug (I guess)

@openBrain I don't use FreeCAD 0.19 (most correctly I can't because this version I use is the one I downloaded from the website and don't know where to download version 0.19 and even if I did, I don't know if it is stable). I attached the file. Metin They are snapshot releases of the development br...
