o.k. cool. Feel free to catch me on IRC or PM if you want to discuss. I don't think there's much (or maybe anything) you need to worry about at this point. I might be able to handle all the clearance moves in the python code.

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

When I set verbose=False, I got correct code but the G91.1 that was added caused its own problems. The Grbl/smoothie motion controller doesn't handle that gcode and always assumes relative centers. So G91.1 is interpreted as G91. This means ALL movement is interpreted as incremental So how about th...

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

Path.fromShapes() seems to be inserting some preamble commands (Command G90 [ ], Command G90.1 [ ], Command G17 [ ]) at the beginning. I don't think it should do this. The pre-amble stuff will all be output by the job itself. Those preambles are not just default values. Depending on the parameters ...

Re: Best practise for tolerances?

I don't know if there are 'best practices'. I'm not a professional engineer nor do I have a formal education in CAD/Design. So others might have a better answer or point us to more formal conventions. I prefer for the design to reflect the ideal part that I would like to make. I use the extra-offset...

Re: Path workbench difficulties

The 0.16 version of Path is almost entirely unusable. Path is MUCH improved in the 0.17 branch but that means you will either have to install the daily build or compile it yourself.

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

Yes. That will work but vFeed and hFeed need to be separate. What GCode controls the feedrate separately? All I found is one F in G1? BTW, please checkout my PathArea branch. It's a new one, it'll be better if you do a fresh checkout. I've added step down handling. A new parameter 'orientation'' in...

Re: I want rustlers, cut throats, murderers, and methodists

and i have an other thing what seams a little odd... I want to cut out this profile, but the path generator ignores the cut for the "corners/pockets", it takes only the outline of the basic object. Confirmed. I'm working on a version that uses @realthunder's PathArea for contour and millf...
