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

A little closer working manually I get this from a boolean cut:

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

I've been playing with Path.Area when I'm still only having only limited success. I'm sure this is because I don't understand it yet and because I'm mostly trying to do things that I can't do other ways in Path now. For example, I started thinking about what a lathe turning operation would look like...

Unit schemas need more granularity

The Path workbench makes heavy use of velocity through App::PropertySpeed. This is used to set the horizontal and vertical 'feed rates' for a machine to move the cutter. The user might not have any choice about what units are used. He might prefer to work in metric values but need to output in imper...

Re: Units for feedrate

if i replace the file with the attached, the toolcontroller isn't a part of job as it is with the original file. For that it seams, that all changes i make have no effect. This makes no sense. The change to the postprocessor won't have any affect on the job creation. I just retried here and the too...

Re: Units for feedrate

Hi sliptonic, This won't solve the display problem, but that's not a Path issue absolutly not, and with all you say i agree. The Problem is the interpretation of linuxcnc, and other machine softeware, which are working with the otherwise unusual unit mm/min and a big count of users which are the ac...

Re: Units for feedrate

Hi sliptonic, we are mostly talking about the shown units in metric system, not about changing from metric to imperial system. speed3.jpg if i set a speed for axis (the green circled) Freecad exports this to the gcode as "F290". Freecad shows mm/s (the red circed) as unit, but Linuxcnc an...

Re: HoldingTags Dressup ignores feedrates

Hi Guys, I have too been hit by this issue, looking at the code; I can see that there is a fundamental issue with the assumption of who is doing what... In PathCountour.py and in PathProfile.py object "PathKurveUtils" is used this object creates its own gcode taking into acocunt feed rate...

Re: Units for feedrate

I've played around with this a little bit trying to understand it better. Here's what I think I've learned. A velocity is a derived unit from two base units, time and distance. So grepping for 'mm/s' probably wouldn't find anything. A velocity unit is always going to be converted to and stored in Fr...
