Another dangerous curve: pockets that pocket empty space, because you have to reverse them, because FreeCAD isn't smart enough to default to pocketing into
the surface the sketch is placed on rather than going "positive" with respect to global coordinates.
FreeCAD is indeed
smart enough to handle pockets correctly, whos Sketches are attached to faces. However, due to other reasons this is not recommended.
Maybe it is now - I'm running the repository head version and will test. I definitelty saw it being stupid this way in 0.18.4, I had to ask about it and was told about the "Reverse" checkbox, which indeed fixed the problem.
