Works well so far, only major thing I noted: the fillet operation behaves not like in CATIA.
It's no problem for me, since it is a minor detail. If someone wants to have a look into the file, I put it up on my Github
Hi ripper, hello to the Community!
Agreeing on what chrisb said, we are very pleased (!) That some users of other cads (in particular of catia and solidworks) try to use FreeCad!
As I have said in several topics (not least this https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=56605
) FreeCad, whatever the complexity of the modeling, is not intimidated, so I ask you to try to model the wheel of the steam locomotive with catia and solidworks to see if you get the same result also in terms of the weight of the final file.
As for your perplexity about the strange behavior of the fillet, I assure you that with the right workflow we arrive at the correct definition of the model.
I hope this will convince you, more and more, to use FreeCad and to pass on your experiences for the benefit of the whole FC Community and those who want to approach the world of FreeCad.
The final result is shown in the image.
Here the file that contains the new workflow: http://www.filedropper.com/endpiecenewworkflow
Good evening and good work!
