Fasteners countersunk crash

Postby Ermete Bottazzi » Wed May 05, 2021 9:33 am

Good morning,
I use FreeCad 0.19 on Windows 10 and Windows 7.
Both PC Freecad crashed when I use the tool Countersunk from the addon Fasteners.

I create a cube with a hole (I tried Part design and Part environment)
Select the environment Fasteners
Select the hole profile. The Countersunk icon become activated.
Click the Countersunk icon (the hole profile become deselected)
I select one edge on the panel. I change the diameter of the hole. I press Ok icon. Nothing happened.
I select the profile on the model and FreeCad crashes.

This happened on both my PC.

Can you help me?

Thank you.

don't understand everything you do
you have to provide a hole sketch, or a guide hole to position the hole, the tool countersunk is only an option of this tool

The countersink tool from Fasteners is not really easy to use with PartDesign bodies - even if it works, because you easily create links going out of allowed scope. A much better way is described by papyblaise, because the hole tool is not affected by the topological naming problem.

Here chamfer from fasteners behaves slightly different
- select an edge
- countersink becomes active - click it
- a tool similar to the Part chamfer opens, no edge is selected
- if I select the edge again, FreeCAD becomes busy at 100%cpu and does nothing further
