  1. That's a great looking piece of work. Thanks for showing me the way you've used different solutions.
  2. Hi @geert_2 thanks for the great tips. I'll might have a look at DesignSpark but I'm using FreeCAD because it FOSS software/GNU, has many workbenches, and can be scripted with Python. Yes, it's been quite unstable, but I haven't had v0.18 crash on me yet. I can hear from what you're saying that it's not so easy to click things together. I think I might be better going with a regular screw recessed into the bottom of the base and going into a nearly big enough hole in the bottom of the top section. I'll let you know how it goes (very slow spare time project).
  3. newbie here. I've got a project made in two parts and now I'm working on how to make the two parts fit together nicely. I don't really want to glue them. I want to insert a top piece into a base. The more I think about it the more complicated it seems. Both to model (FreeCAD) the required shapes and the choice of geometry. Maybe this problem has a name. Anyway, I'd appreciate some tips and/or links.
