Re: Path Wiki Pages (Status)

thanks, I don't really know what I'm doing there, I just tried to use incantations seen on other similar pages :)

Re: Help: no dressup, no party.

... and here's a more parametric way to do it (just set the angle in the spreadsheet and everything auto-updates) - went for the simplest corner relief (equivalent to what dogbone calls "tbone short edge", I think)

Re: Path Wiki Pages (Status)

I added some usage instructions to Path Vcarve, hope they're okay (I also included how to massage svg imports to make them usable for Vcarve)

Re: OpenCamLib make error

I built ubuntu packages for myself and whoever wants to use them here https://launchpad.net/~iacobs/+archive/ubuntu/cnc - you only need python3-opencamlib (no idea how to go about getting them into the main freecad ppa, and someone suggested a long time ago I should submit a merge request for the up...

Simulator issues with deburr paths and the new toolbits

I came across this while testing the new toolbit changes at https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=51824&p=449078#p448985 and I was able to reproduce it in the latest freecad-daily: the gcode looks fine, as seen in this camotics screenshot testfile2-camotics-vbit.png ... but the simulator...

Re: Toolbits. SERIOUS EFFORT NEEDED

Ok. I haven't investigated it yet but if true it will be a bug in the deburr op, not the toolbit. Please consider starting a different thread so this can be addressed properly. while building a test piece for the new thread I discovered the default chamfer bit is not there; going to use the one in ...

Re: Toolbits. SERIOUS EFFORT NEEDED

I'm not sure what's going on here. Both numpy and pivy are used widely throughout FreeCAD. Strange, for some reason apt-get build-dep freecad-daily didn't install them, even if they're listed in build-depends; you're right, they are already in the package dependencies (edit: numpy isn't, but I gues...

Re: Toolbits. SERIOUS EFFORT NEEDED

I got a clean build / run environment by running the thing in docker; observations so far: * it needs 2 extra packages that aren't in the freecad-daily dependencies (numpy and pivy) * toolbit dock seems to work fine, and text-only might work for people like me who have like 10 cutters in total; for ...

Re: Toolbits. SERIOUS EFFORT NEEDED

I'm not sure if it fits here, but I don't see anything in the PR about the simulator, and with the current daily package it doesn't work: 15:21:30 Running the Python command 'Path_Simulator' failed: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/share/freecad-daily/Mod/Path/PathScripts/PathSimulatorG...

Re: How to engrave along a sketch

the simulator doesn't take the cutter shape into account (yet?), so it will act like it's using a tool with the shank diameter of your defined engraver (in my case, 3.175mm) Screenshot from 2020-06-18 22-12-32.png in camotics, after adding a tool with the right settings it looks fine: Screenshot fro...
