Path mode- problem

Postby Arq » Sun Feb 12, 2017 8:23 pm

Hi. I have problem with Path mode in FreeCad v.0.16.6706.
OS: Windows 7
Word size of OS: 64-bit
Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit
Version: 0.16.6706 (Git)
Build type: Release
Branch: releases/FreeCAD-0-16
Hash: f86a4e411ff7848dea98d7242f43b7774bee8fa0
Python version: 2.7.8
Qt version: 4.8.7
Coin version: 4.0.0a
OCC version: 6.8.0.oce-0.17

After added new project and prepared tools, I can't put them in to the Machine- operation terminated with error.

What am I doing wrong? (I follow exactly with this trainer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c4JUnB1AHdY)

You can use the new path stuff only with the 0.17 development version: https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/releases. In the help section of the forum you find more information about it. Please be aware that it is a development version which sure has bugs, sometimes crashes and the internal data structures might change.

Thank you for quick response. Today I installed FreeCAD_0.17.10085_x64_dev_win but i found another problem.
I can prepare New Job only for defoult tool. I can not add a new tool to the library tools-after parameterization new tool and click OK, it is not stored in the library. I wonder whether the problem lies with my hardware or it is normal at that stage of the development of this version?

None of both. Please have a look here: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=19642. All tutorials that still have the "Project" as root of the path stuff are outdated. A "Job" is what we are now talking about.
