horrovac It seems to be completely arbitrary. I have tried various combination of what I select first and so on, but nothing seems to work.
horrovac If one doesn't choose an axis it's sometimes angle to vertical, sometimes to horizontal... But that can be solved.
macdroid53
@macdroid53
horrovac not that I know of.
FreeCADGitter
@FreeCADGitter
horrovac macdroid53 thanks, I was afraid so.
macdroid53
@macdroid53
hoorovac I'm not sure (abdullah would know I'm sure) but I think it has to do with the solver and the way angles get into the huge solution matrix. That and they aren't meant to be "mechanical drawing" dimensions, but constraints. But, I agree, it would be nice to have them the way I think of them...
FreeCADGitter
@FreeCADGitter
horrovac Yeah, it's not really a problem. I'll manage. I just thought perhaps there is something I have not found or some kind of trick to trick it into doing what I will.
macdroid53
@macdroid53
horrovac sometimes there are tricks...

dongs_ horrovac: we must be using different freecad because the only shit I have on RMB is this hot garbage: https://i.imgur.com/ai9GR5R.png which is why im saying this is something that should be in PREFERENCES, not wasting space on a usable button.
dongs_ i dont even know what it means and why there's 10 options in that menu, but whatever tehy are, they sound like preferences and not something that neesd to be changed each tiem a button is pressed
macdroid53
@macdroid53
The right mouse button is context aware. So, right click on something in the feature tree, get a different popup menu. What you show, are navigation styles, and there are many users that change that on the fly, hence it is made available easily.
and, learning whatvthey mean, is well...part of learning. 🤷‍♂️😎

i'm having a difficult time with padding a sketch. i've got the pad extruding out directly intersecting the other object in the body, i checked the sketch itself for redundant lines, but I still get an error, "result has multiple solids"
it's odd because I can see it intersecting the other object
Andrew Degenhardt
@andrewdegenhardt_gitlab
again, same error
doesnt make any sense, since it is clearly intersecting the other object
Carlo
@onekk
try in the forum, without a proper example, it is difficult to guess what you are doing, to have one solid usually you have to fuse them, simply see that two objects are intersecting is not enough.
macdroid53
@macdroid53
the requirement is that the sketch must add material to the existing solid. If the Pad (which is the specific term for the process in Part Design, Extrude is the term for a similar process in Part workbench) will happen to touch the solid after a Pad is not enough to satisfy the single solid requirement of a Part Design Body.

Hi, how can I edit a stl file on freecad?
macdroid53
@macdroid53
The process is to convert it to a shape and then a solid. At which point you can add to or take away, but not change it's dimensions.

jigubigule guys, can anyone run freecad on Ubuntu 20.04?
jigubigule I am having problems just running the software since I updated the OS to 20.04
jigubigule on 18 it worked without any issues
macdroid53
@macdroid53
I've run on 20.04, 21.04, Debian 9 & 10 with 0.18, 0.19, and 0.20, for years, no problems.
FreeCADGitter
@FreeCADGitter
jigubigule FreeCADBot: I don't understand, I am getting some weird "Segmentation Fault, Core dumped" errors when I try to open the software
jigubigule Files also appear to be missing
macdroid53
@macdroid53
are you using an appimage?
FreeCADGitter
@FreeCADGitter
jigubigule no, I installed it with apt
jigubigule also tried with snap
jigubigule which version of freecad do you have FreeCADBot
macdroid53
@macdroid53
FreeCADBot is the bridge between IRC and gitter...I'm macdroid53. I'm primarily running 0.20 at this point. But 0.19 seems to be fine on my Ubuntu PC's.You can the latest 0.19.2 here: https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/releases/

mrec ok as nice as the sheetmetal workbench might look like it still has several issues, eg. slotted folded paths
macdroid53
@macdroid53
mrec umm...well, it is one of the newest workbenches. (it is also, very bad with tnp, since by nature it uses generated geometry.) But, the dev of the workbench is quite responsive in the forums...maybe you could ask about it. also, do you have an image of what you are attempting?
FreeCADGitter
@FreeCADGitter
mrec I have found a solution for it
FreeCADGitter
@FreeCADGitter
mrec ok the radius must not be 0°
macdroid53
@macdroid53
mrec yeah computer software gets kind of grumpy about things that cause divide by 0 conditions. 😎
FreeCADGitter
@FreeCADGitter
mrec it just says it cannot unfold the object
mrec possibly just a sanity check, in a real world object it should be allowed, 0.1 is allowed however
macdroid53
@macdroid53
How does one achieve a 0° bend radius, is that not no bend? Or a 0.0 bend radius...even paper has a thickness and a fold has a bend radius.🤔
FreeCADGitter
@FreeCADGitter
mrec 0° inner circle bend radius just press it 90° and maybe grind it out. I have parts here with 90°
mrec not 0° 0mm bend radius
mrec I also have an object here which has an impossible form for the sheet metal workbench
mrec fold an object 90° then bend a radius to it/stretch the outer side

kantlivelong will freecad channel be migrating to Libera?
macdroid53
@macdroid53
well there is already a channel on Libera.
FreeCADGitter
@FreeCADGitter
kantlivelong macdroid53 there is but I noticed that it's not setup for bridge with Gitter
macdroid53
@macdroid53
kantlivelong it supposed to be, but I think it is broken ATM.

sine0 hi folks anyone around. I have created a part in part design and I can see it and its origin. how do I view it outside of part design for example to take a screenshot without theorigin
macdroid53
@macdroid53
sine0 what do you mean by origin? The axis cross can be turned off in View>Toggle axis cross. The little axis in the corner can be turned off in preferences, and the nav cube as well.
