Summary0002157: Pad results in a triangle instead of a trapezoid
DescriptionIn the sttached file there are two sketches, the hidden sketch contains the profile of a trapezoid with a redundant constraint. Extruding the aforementioned sketch before or after rmeoving the redundant constraint results in a triangle instead of the desired shape.

gdb, Python console and Report View fail to report any problem.
Steps To ReproduceMode 1:

Open the file.
Select the hidden Sketch and toggle its visibility.
Observe the trapezoid shape.
Pad it an arbitrary distance.

Mode 2:
Open the file.
Select the hidden Sketch and toggle its visibility.
Edit the sketch to remove the redundant constraint and exit it.
Observe the trapezoid shape.
Pad it an arbitrary distance.

The sketch contains one line too many. This is shown in the Elements list widget, which may not have existed back in 2015. Delete the 5th line and the pad works correctly.

Therefore I'm not sure this is a valid bug. I don't know if it's realistic for the PartDesign tools to check for redundant geometry in the sketch before executing the 3D feature. If that was, the report would need to be rewritten.

@wmayer can you weigh on this ticket?

As per current design, when in the recompute chain there is a "problem" in one object, control is returned to the recompute loop. Depending on the type of "problem" it may happen that the recompute is stop right away, or that it continues with the next feature. In any case the object where the recompute was interrupted remains "not fully recomputed". Generally a error is shown in the tree.

In the specific case of the sketcher, redundant and conflicting constraints are a reason to return control see:

    if (lastDoF < 0) { // over-constrained sketch
        std::string msg="Over-constrained sketch\n";
        appendConflictMsg(lastConflicting, msg);
        return new App::DocumentObjectExecReturn(msg.c_str(),this);
    if (lastHasConflict) { // conflicting constraints
        std::string msg="Sketch with conflicting constraints\n";
        appendConflictMsg(lastConflicting, msg);
        return new App::DocumentObjectExecReturn(msg.c_str(),this);
    if (lastHasRedundancies) { // redundant constraints
        std::string msg="Sketch with redundant constraints\n";
        appendRedundantMsg(lastRedundant, msg);
        return new App::DocumentObjectExecReturn(msg.c_str(),this);

So up to here, I would say that the shown behavior is intended.

However, because unrecomputed sketches due to redundant constraints are a problem in other contexts (hidden newly added geometry after redundant constraints), there is a P.R. in the pipeline,, that, if accepted, may change this behaviour in the specific case of the Sketcher back to match the expectations of the reporter.

In any case, whatever may or may not happen, it is not related to this ticket. I think it is best that this ticket should be closed as resolved.
