If I want to decide what angle my fillet has, you should select the edge between two planar surfaces. In what workbench am I able to change the angle? Could you maybe post a video of this? Have tried to find this tool for quite long now, so it would be a major help!

Hi, I would like to know how to make a polyline with many points all at specific x-y coordinates on x-y plane. Then I would like to make another 2 bsplines on x-z and y-z planes, after that I would like that the endpoints of the different lines on the 3 different planes are connected. How do I go about that? at the end of the day I want to make a specific surface. From the surface I want to make a thin solid surface that I can use on my 3d printer. Thanks

Where are you selecting that "Body" from??  I can't find such a thing in my Freecad!

For the life of me I can't figure out why I'm always getting "can't validate broken face." I've read on the forums, followed through on all my constrictions, used the macro… I'm going to try upgrading to 0.17 to see if maybe it's an editor bug.
