Re: PartDesign Chamfer issue

Or maybe just edit the solid; sketch a pocket with a taper and you can get very creative. :)

Re: Almost a lockup, big delay and weird Pad.

No T-junctions, no crossings for sketches which should be padded! I know that for sure, tell FreeCAD, I didn't draw anything. :) It's odd, the contrainsts are in place but no matter what value I set the Deviation I can always zoom in to see overlap. I expected the vertexes to be coincident and get ...

Re: Sketch visual location tool

I made this macro long time ago, it should work. When you click on a tree sketch it hides everything and highlights the sketch elements for 1 second. I suppose the origins could be turned on also. Maybe this will help. I have never tried to get selections by hovering in the tree. I thought that only...

Re: Cloud syncing causing file consistency problems

I do wonder if there is something going on with saving. I went to save a file to a USB drive and got this error (pic). The drive was close to full so the error might be explained but strange looking and I was trying to save. I will use a different usb drive from now on.

Re: Almost a lockup, big delay and weird Pad.

I was thinking it is so simple to create, but what if you can't create it... :oops: By the way my system locked up 3 times trying to recreate the file.

Almost a lockup, big delay and weird Pad.

I don't know why someone would do this, but maybe they would. Start a new doc and sketch on XY plane. Sketch a regular polygon (from 0,0) and then select the reference polygon outer circle (blue) and do a ""toggle construction" command, then Pad the sketch . I attached a pic of what I...

Re: Piping macro, designing in 3D view "Route5"

I wanted to see how far I could go with advanced piping because I have been following the motorcycle frame. https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=67784 . I made the main pipe in green and then tried to figure out how best to attach branches. I ended up with each branch being a new bo...

Re: How to replace the thickness tool in this case?

Here is how I would have done the cups in the cup. I'm lean more towards building complex shapes using basic cutting and additive tools, I feel like the edges are more controlled and typically the fillets work better. I only did one hole for reference. I made a datum line for a rotation reference, d...

Re: How to replace the thickness tool in this case?

File size:
I remember testing that once and all I could do was just a few bytes over 1 meg. Could the text stating the size be incorrect, I think it could. :)

OP, nice model.

Re: How to replace the thickness tool in this case?

I'm guessing the max file size is binary: 2^10 or 1024.
