EngrChrisSpeaking of meshes. Is it possable to offset the mesh surface? I have a 400k mesh that can't be reduced.
tubes4branesYou can use external tools such as MeshLab.
tubes4branesCAD systems don't always have powerful meshing tools, as they usually have BREP geometry engines, and represent objects based on a hierarchy of operations, systems of equations, etc…
tubes4branesyou can even consider editing the mesh with Blender and then importing it.
tubes4branesit should import just fine.
KnaldgasGeitMint, no from the File Menu. Part->Import CAD... does not support STL.
Knaldgastubes4branes, Hmm, Blender may be the solution, thanks
GeitMintdepending on the system you use of course
rebeccaI have a model created from photos without any absolute measurements. it was all ratios so i eyeballed the numbers to begin with but now i would like to uniformly scale the resulting hairball of sketcher + spreadsheet numbers
rebeccameticulously changing these numbers after the fact would not be a fun exercise
rebeccabut it would be nice if a better solution than 'resize the stl' was the only answer
captain_morgan06at home on Linux it seems I can just select a sketch and ctrl-e and svg works but I don't get the option on Windows, both 0.19
captain_morgan06oh wait, I do get it under Drawing but then errors with "Export of this object type is not supported by Drawing module"
captain_morgan06oh but this works I guess, I can put the sketch into a drawing...
Bushmancan't install from PPA so i've downloaded appimage
blitzkraftI use freecad appimage too.
Bushmanin path workbench i'm unable to add tool
Bushmanafter i click ok the tool is not added to the list.
Bushmanno errors in terminal
blitzkraftI never used the path workbench. Got any steps to reproduce? I can try and find if I get the same results.
blitzkraftOr can you share a file?
Bushmanthe tool manager is also kinda weird looking, as if something was missing. like those three buttons above the left list are blank. no icons, no text
Bushmanblitzkraft: open path workbench, create new job, open tool manager, add new tool, click ok
Bushmansame thing happens if you try to add new tool during job creation
