Re: [Tip] Converting OpenSCAD files easily to STEP with FreeCAD

but FreeCAD, if anything goes wrong, I found I had to scrap the design and start over. I've never been able to fix a design once it breaks. Hi, I'm NormandC over at the FreeCAD forum. It is possible to fix a broken model. It seems that you never asked for pointers about it... This is caused by what...

FreeCAD 0.16.6700 Released

Hello, This post is for anyone who is using FreeCAD. From perusing the devel.lulzbot.com files, it looks like the Aleph Objects people may still be using FreeCAD for some CAD work, so I think this could be useful to them too. A couple of weeks ago and after one year of development, FreeCAD 0.16.6700...

Re: FreeCAD Tutorials

This is just an update on something I wrote very long ago, in case someone stumbles on this topic: To be blunt, that OS is the worst to use FreeCAD on, because none of the developers own Macs, the Mac builds are provided by one or two volunteers. And these volunteers do not stick around long enough ...

Re: Autocad editing of freeCAD files

Useful video, hemocyanin. I'd like to add the following information : you are using the measurement tools available in the Part workbench, those tools did not exist in 2013 when this topic was started. What you can't see is that when hovering over a line, I press the ctrl key (linux) or command key ...

Re: Estimating Print Cost

PS: Gemini64, could you repost that link to the file? It seems to have expired. Yeah, I was heavily using UbuntuOne (similar to Dropbox but for Ubuntu users) to upload images and files for use on online forums... Since the service shut down in June 2014, I have hundreds of dead links all over the p...

Re: Getting started - 3D Software Recomendations

Sorry but I do not consider zero's post to be relevant here. For one thing, of all the software he mentions, each of them but a single one (Blender) costs hundreds or thousands of dollars. For another thing, most of the post focuses on the gaming industry. :roll: The Reprap wiki has a very extensive...

Re: A101-1 cad files?

Sorry for being late to the party! I haven't done much 3D printing in the past few months. Gemini64 also has a complete frame mock up in CAD somewhere in the forums as well if I remember right. Don't remember if I posted it, but I can supply my file if needed. It's modeled in FreeCAD. drmacro: I'm n...

Re: TAZ Very loose Solid rod bearings?

Yeah there is. As I said already, the Misumi part number shown in the BOM is SSFHR10-500. If you look again at that Misumi page, SSFR stands for 304 Stainless Steel . The table lists "-" as surface treatment. Can we assume "-" means none? You asked What's the Rockwell on the 10mm shafts that Lulzbo...

Re: TAZ Very loose Solid rod bearings?

Better late than never... What's the Rockwell on the 10mm shafts that Lulzbot supplies on the TAZ? There's no Rockwell, apparently they're Misumi SSFHR10-500 stainless steel rotary shafts - that is, according to the TAZ BOM available here: http://downloads.lulzbot.com/lulzbot/TAZ/hardware/ Misumi pr...
