No bug. With the big rectangle you cut the solid in two. That's not allowed in PartDesign. If you change the rectangle from small to big, an arbitrary part is discarded. Better handling of the erroneous state could be desirable
Thickness is very picky. It is well known, and comes from the 3rd party geometric kernel. FreeCAD can nothing do about it.Bug2 : Cannot shell with thickness inward.
This seems rather a feature request than a bug. Please give the pointer to the wiki. There may be an error in the documentation.
Bug3 : The fillet tool does not offer possibility to make chamfer instead of fillet. There should be a tick boxe I read from wiki. Also I cannot set the side. It seems a pop up windows is not appearing.
Ok I understand. I am not totally sure to understand the difference between draft workbench and sketch. Then indeed it's a feature request. I think this should be pretty simple to add as it's very similar to fillet?
What is the correct way to do what I'm trying to do then (cutting the corners)? There does not seem to be a cut tool. I should make the plane offset to the outside of the solid and pocket it from outside ? This is not very intuitive. Maybe the pocket tool could try to apply the pocket to see if the result is 2 solids before throwing an error?
This is sad as thickness is a very important feature. What external kernel is that? Why do you say it cannot be improved, it's closed source?
I posted on the development forum because I don't really need help. I was trying to remake this 3D to learn to use FreeCAD and help finding potential issues to maybe give helpful feedback.Moved from PartDesign development. Post there if you have questions concerning the development of PartDesign.
You found it already yourself: use a rectangle that is big enough. If you place it at the plane up to which you want to cut, you can check the "Reverse" box.
It's the OCC kernel from Open Cascade. From what I read it has a not quite easy error reporting process, and if you join the development, all rights are transferred to OCC.
What external kernel is that? Why do you say it cannot be improved, it's closed source?
No that also throw an error even if you click the reverse boxe. You have to first make the box small, apply the tool, then edit the size of the box. But then it makes the thing somehow buggy as you can see the part disappear when I edit the sketch. I think that's potentially also why the shell tool do not work afterward .
You are totally right. Not a hassle at all.Kunda1 wrote: ↑Thu Feb 06, 2020 5:37 pmJust a friendly note, even though it's a hassle, it's better to open separate threads for each bug / feature. From experience creating a thread with a generic name (details are better) and posting about several bugs/features has a tendency to not get addressed in its totality.
