docl ahh. maybe use an intersecting rectangle in a similar fashion
docl er, "cube"
gordonjcp right, I got that far but I can't work out how to make it the right size and shape
gordonjcp I can make a "cuboid" I guess, parallel to either side of the box side
gordonjcp from the calculations I have, I've got the top and bottom corners of the "inner" side of the divider
kwk I have a daily build running now which should hopefully fix things
docl so 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
gordonjcp docl: yup, I got that bit, but like I said only parallel with the existing sides, and with no way to accurately locate it

@FreeCADGitter
docl to move the cuboid around you can alter the x/y/z from Placement->Position. You might need to hide the cut and unhide the shapes so you can manipulate them, in which case click the shape and press spacebar

KimK gordonjcp: When you return, see if this unfinished example speaker cabinet will help you at all: http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=05130532345964187809
KimK gordonjcp: It covers sketcher, pad/pocket, and assemblies. You'll have to install Assembly2+ from Tools|Add-On_Manager, one or two clicks.

KimK kwk: I have good news and I have bad news. The good news is that freecad-daily PPA updated correctly, with no errors or issues. Yay, congratulations.
KimK kwk: 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.
KimK kwk: Oh, wait, maybe I can get a crash report by starting from a terminal...
KimK kwk: Drat, have to leave, back later. To be continued!

@FreeCADGitter
kwk Yeah, I only fixed one of the problems with the most recent build
kwk I'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

@FreeCADGitter
KimK kwk: 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.
KimK kwk: BTW, let me take this opportunity to thank you for all your hard work on this, we PPA users appreciate it very much!

gordonjcp KimK: oh neat, I'll look at that later

nusse hi there
nusse i 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?
FreeCADGitter
@FreeCADGitter
GeitMint nusse: I personally would not mix Part Design and Part workbench. Something like a cube in Part Design is a matter of seconds, too.
GeitMint However. 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
GeitMint I 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.
kwk Thanks 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

@FreeCADGitter
kwk @luzpaz if you want I can just copy all the directories you have in your home dir to the new server, looks like that should grab all the stuff you were working on
luzpaz
@luzpaz
@kwk oh, didn't realize it was you :tongue:
Yes please!

@FreeCADGitter

Hi, Question about transform in part design.
This is the final design
TS.JPG
I made this by doing two separate linear transforms
TS1.jpg
And then
TS2.JPG
But doing it this way I need to make the features twice, once for each transform.
Is there a way to get the t-shape another (easier) way ?

Needs some help here, in the bugtracker, when you open a new ticket, (page is called bug_report_page.php), specifically when you fail to fill out a title for the ticket and press Submit, you see this pop-up:
Where is the code for this? I can't find it in any of the .js libraries that get loaded with the page, or in the MantisBT source code
