gordonjcpright, I got that far but I can't work out how to make it the right size and shape
gordonjcpI can make a "cuboid" I guess, parallel to either side of the box side
gordonjcpfrom the calculations I have, I've got the top and bottom corners of the "inner" side of the divider
kwkI have a daily build running now which should hopefully fix things
doclso this time I made 2 cubes. one is long and skinny like a board, the other is a small chunk that intersects it. then I select both and use the cut operation, which makes a "Cut" object that looks like a board with a slot in it
gordonjcpdocl: yup, I got that bit, but like I said only parallel with the existing sides, and with no way to accurately locate it
KimKgordonjcp: When you return, see if this unfinished example speaker cabinet will help you at all: http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=05130532345964187809
KimKgordonjcp: It covers sketcher, pad/pocket, and assemblies. You'll have to install Assembly2+ from Tools|Add-On_Manager, one or two clicks.
KimKkwk: The bad news is that FreeCAD 0.19 loads and starts, but if asked to load a previous file crashes during loading. I tried two different files that opened on 0.18 (stable PPA). I will wait for further advice.
KimKkwk: Oh, wait, maybe I can get a crash report by starting from a terminal...
KimKkwk: Drat, have to leave, back later. To be continued!
kwkI'm testing it some more right now and I think I found out why my test builds were not having the same issue as the PPA builders, so hopefully everything should be back to normal soon
KimKkwk: It seems that freecad-daily PPA is not finding the Path WB? Terminal messages pasted at: https://pastebin.com/GGxQbuKt Also, the "about" box does not have the detailed git version/build number that would normally be expected there.
KimKkwk: BTW, let me take this opportunity to thank you for all your hard work on this, we PPA users appreciate it very much!
nussei create a cube solid in the part wb and want to pocket it with a sketch. how do i do that? aparently I need a body these days?
GeitMintHowever. To create a sketch on a face you should swap to part design wb and select the face and then click on the new sketch icon
GeitMintI strongly suggest to use a datum plane on the face and place the sketch onto that to avoid everything is falling appars later on as freecad references are broken like hell.
kwkThanks for your support KimK. The version number is a longstanding issue separate from this recent breakage, but now that the breakage is hopefully taken care of it's something we can move on to address next
kwkOn my screen it says kkremitzki
XXCodertry change it to something else then back
kkremitzkiWhat about now
