STL file - impossible to modify

Postby mchacher » Tue May 11, 2021 6:51 am

Hi all,
I am struggling modifying the STL file attached. I would like to add a simple hole on the side, but after meshing it, converting to a solid, I am not able to apply a sketch and add this hole.
Does any one could try and provide me with a freecad example ... ?

Thanks a lot.

This is simple enough that it is not worth to invest any time in the conversion. It looks like just two simple padded sketches.
