Error exporting a angled rotate extrude to FreeCAd.

eZe
Hello,

I updated openScad to 2016 because of the rotate_extrude( angle) parameter, i use FreeCad to convert the design to .stp file. Here is what i encounter as a problem please find the image below, It behave as af the angle command was not given in FreeCad. Is there a workaround for this problem?

Thank you.

Please report this to FreeCad.

I can’t think of any smart workarounds, except not using features which are unsupported by FreeCad.

You can try this attached userspace implementation, I've used it for
thingiverse customizer, which is on older version of OpenSCAD not
supporting angle parameter.

I don't know what freecad reports its openscad version as, so you can
replace the line "angleSupport = ..." with "angleSupport = false;" in
the attachment to ensure it uses the fallback operation.
