Re: Modify Path to my needs. How?

There are DEFINITELY ways to get involved and contribute right now without even digging into the guts. It depends on your expertise and interest. The obvious answers for beginners are tracking down bugs and writing documentation I am willing to share any documentation arising in the process of tryi...

Re: Modify Path to my needs. How?

If you execute the code in the python console you can view the members and their values of the current object. You have probably a Curve and not an Edge. Of course: a circle is a curve and not made of edges :D So what do I do to make a PathProfile? Maybe I have to select another Script like PathFro...

Re: Modify Path to my needs. How?

I have tried to get an edgelist. This works fine for a Rectangle. But with a circle it gives an error: mywire=TechDraw.findShapeOutline(myobj.Shape, 1, Vector(0,0,1)) <class 'Part.OCCError'>: GeometryObject::projectShape - error occurred while projecting shape I am not so much astonished as a circle...

Re: Modify Path to my needs. How?

Thank you, sliptonic! :) Much of the complexity in Path has to do with handling user selections, making guesses at depths, keeping track of tools, etc. Be careful you don't start trying to reinvent all those wheels too. That's effectively something that stresses me a bit for the moment, that I have ...

Re: Modify Path to my needs. How?

Now I can generate a contour path by script. The next step is to attack the profile path. I have looked at the code which seems to be more complex, while part of this complexity lies in guessing the base object as it seems to me. I have not fully understood which kind of object this must be. May it ...

Re: Modify Path to my needs. How?

Actually my code seems to work! :D I didn't notice because I forgot FreeCAD.ActiveDocument.recompute() at the end. Another thing is that I updated Freecad - daily ton 0.17R10101 The Path module I use is an older one however, can't tell from when. (I wanted to keep this as it had made me nice G code ...

Re: Modify Path to my needs. How?

I have progressed a little bit in understanding the Path scripts. Now I am able to create a path Job object and set my parameters: # -*- coding: utf-8 -*- # Macro for initializing Path Job and setting tool and feed rate import FreeCAD import PathScripts.PathJob as PathJob import PathScripts.PathLoad...
