    I couldn't even find my side doors, so haven't had a chance to test them. Would be great @W1EBR.Gene if you could confirm they work for you.

    Cool thanks. I duped it into my account so I can play around. Just FYI you have 2 sketches which aren't happy (way up the time stack)

    I tried it out and they work! I am using them mounted to the long side so that they can be swung and left open for easy access or closed if I am printing ABS.

    Yeh. I have no idea why either. When I created an offset, it became unsolvable all of a sudden, even though it could draw it. In the end, I just kept hammering until it worked. Maybe it was something I did, or maybe it's an error in the software. I keep reporting things from time to time, but haven't mentioned this one. In the end, it seems to work anyway.

    I came close to designing it twice, one for each orientation, but thankfully realised I didn't need to do that before I got far. Thanks for the report.

    Yeah, I have complained multiple times about the error messages being next to useless (they are right down the street from me, so I actually go over there every so often) and they did acknowledge. I've been a test subject for some UX testing, and it was pretty funny when they saw how a "normal" person might interpret some of them...

    Often I take those kinds of errors to mean - "try it again a different way". These recent errors all seem to be connected to projecting from an imported DXF into a sketch for follow up extrusion.
