I have a new question and was not sure if I should post a new topic or just continue here. I am sure it is a noob question again.
My buddy uses solidworks and I have the Step file. I put that into Freecad and got all the needed dimensions from it. I build the item and then tried to add the final chamfer on the front, but it will not do it. I am not sure why.
The main question then is how do I add the chamfer like the solidworks modeled part?
When building the part I worked in part design and started with the base and added to it. I tried to add cylinders on top, but it kept giving me the part is not attached or two solid object error, hence the direction I took in building it.
On that note is it better to add pads to a part or start with a larger area and take away, such as a mill would do? So start large and use pockets or start smaller and add pads? You would think both can get to the same result, but not sure if Freecad is really designed to be one way more than another.
Also, I found, what I think is, an error. I added a chamfer to a connection point and it made a chamfer stick out form the body. Odd. I left it in so you all can see it if it need to be reported or something. Again, Freecad 18.
Thanks again for the help,
