Re: [0.17] Holding tags issues



Looks good to me, if you wanted you can use the constants PathGeom.CmdMoveXxxx instead.

Re: [0.17] Holding tags issues

The discussion in https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=20439 might shed some light into it. There are 2 options as I see it: 1) you can add the feedrate back into each Command from the active tool controller 2) you can add a command that sets the feedrate, and fix the post processor...

Re: Path.Area: Welcome, to the new era!

I'm not sure if the picture represents an actual path - but I would highly recommend NOT to send that to your CNC machine .... ;)

Re: Is an increase of precision possible?

I have an object with an end of an arc at (145, 3 ,someZ). When I create a path on the corresponding line I get (145, 2.999 ). I checked with "Inspect GCode" it shows X145.000000 Y2.999000 It seems as if the internal representation is taken and cut (not rounded) to a precision of 3 decima...

Re: Machining block

I think you are spot on with everything you say - and the delay is definitely my doing. I started down that path but then, half way through, got side tracked by another project which has been taken up all my time for last few weeks. I will get back at it in late May. The plan is to actually start us...

Re: How do I get rid of this bounding box

There are really 2 problems with the bounding box, one is that it behaves differently than anything else in FC. The old behaviour was preferable because it didn't get in the way. Not being able to select something is a deficiency and should get fixed, having a bounding box pop up is confusing and di...

Re: How do I get rid of this bounding box

With the latest update whenever a Job or one of the ops is selected I get a wire frame bounding box. Anybody know how to get rid of that it's quite irritating. Also the arrows seem to always point CW, regardless of which way the path actually points. I can add a selection style of None to disable t...

mhh - works for me. What are your settings for the tags?
