Re: Path Profile Faces: 4th-axis integration

Those pots look very much 3d printed to me :) Would it be possible to make them on a 4 axis router? maybe the leftmost one, but the center and right one would be really tedious (lots of features, deep trenches requiring most likely one of those conical endmills and possibly 2 or 3 tools so it doesn'...

Re: Community Extras PPA Announcement & Support Thread: IfcOpenShell, Gmsh 4, freecad-doc translations & more!

yeah, I'm used to adding "debian uupdate" if it doesn't exist in debian/watch, running uscan, then working on the new source tree / package; in that context, dpkg-source will compare the source tree with .orig files and complain if it has changed and there is no patch; I'll try to figure this out ov...

Re: Community Extras PPA Announcement & Support Thread: IfcOpenShell, Gmsh 4, freecad-doc translations & more!

oh, so we maintain the whole source tree instead of just the packaging? that's ... weird

I'll do it one of these days, I'll have to figure out how it works (and I dread making yet another online account somewhere)

Re: Cutting outside a sketch with variable offsets

I'm not aware of anything that would do this out of the box; you can probably use multiple single pass contour operations with manually set extra offset (positive for leaving material, negative for removing material), possibly automated with a bit of scripting.

Re: Community Extras PPA Announcement & Support Thread: IfcOpenShell, Gmsh 4, freecad-doc translations & more!

wiki updated; I also tested building in ubuntu 19.10 (cmake 3.13), it works without specifying the various paths explicitly; I ended up pushing an ubuntu 19.10 package to my PPA, for good measure.

Re: Community Extras PPA Announcement & Support Thread: IfcOpenShell, Gmsh 4, freecad-doc translations & more!

there wasn't much to patch; the contents of the debian directory are at https://launchpad.net/~iacobs/+archive/ubuntu/cnc/+sourcefiles/opencamlib/2019.07-0ppa3~ubuntu18.04/opencamlib_2019.07-0ppa3~ubuntu18.04.debian.tar.xz debian/rules is basically a makefile, the relevant parts are the last 4 defin...

Re: Cannot find OCL on recent version

I have a few packages from the freecad-community PPA, and it looks like the python-opencamlib I have installed only has files for python 2.7; apt's history log says I updated it on February 8, not sure if it worked before nevermind, that's when I upgraded to ubuntu 18.04, that package hasn't been re...

Re: Spiral pattern - for what?

Heh, so while checking various shapes I learned something new: found the "keep tool down" option for pocket / 3d pocket, and figured that it only works up to a certain step over percent (70 or 75%, depending on the shape), then it starts retracting; it's not a spiral, but it seems better than zigzag...
