Re: Adaptive path: tool breakage at end of pass

I could see this happening with climb milling and a bit of flex in the system (the end of an adaptive pass will usually be a sharp ridge that will put extra strain on the cutter, possibly enough for a thin one to break); if you do climb, try conventional milling or bumping up the spindle speed if po...

Re: Pocket with island - finish pass strategy

will this work? I added 2 face profile operations, both with a final depth of 15mm (since that seems to be the pocket's depth): one for the rectangular wall's top face, with "process holes" checked and "process perimeter" unchecked, and one for the island set to process the perimeter Seems to do wha...

Re: Selection of faces very slow in Path Workbench

Confirming that face selection is weirdly slow in this particular file, even after setting refine=true on the source objects (so the face count gets reduced drastically) in the latest 0.18 It also brings up an interesting problem: if you choose the top face for "profile faces" and select "process ho...

Re: Probably the most complex thing I've cut so far

I know, I guess this got lost in the rest of the text :P [snip] following the discussion on github there is now a command in A2+ devel that allows doing something similar to Arch external references (importing a single body from a FreeCAD file), so something good did come out of this eventually :)

Re: Probably the most complex thing I've cut so far

It was a bit of a naming confusion, really... In A2+ objects are called parts, I wanted to import several bodies as separate parts, thought if I place bodies in part design parts and only make the ones I want visible it would work automagically (I was also glad I found a use for the part design Part...

Re: Probably the most complex thing I've cut so far

Did you inspect the GCode? Is it correct? If yes, the issue obviously is outside of FreeCAD (tool diameter, ...) I didn't say it was freecad, the gcode looks correct and all holes are pretty much bang on; I suspect a mechanical problem (loose belts or something like that), I'll figure it out when I...

managed to get it assembled in a2plus too, with minimal clutter using arch external references (suggested at https://github.com/kbwbe/A2plus/issues/ ... -489298386)

Re: Probably the most complex thing I've cut so far

some people even cut aluminium with it: https://www.vicious1.com/forum/topic/more-aluminium-testing/ (and I think I saw mentions about steel too) The material in the photo is poplar plywood, so it goes through it like butter (hence the 15mm/s - I think I could go to 20mm/s easily); plastic will defi...

Re: Probably the most complex thing I've cut so far

I placed the bodies in parts hoping that a2plus would import them as separate objects, but nope... anyway, since I managed to get the file organized and looking neat enough I thought I'd share :)

Probably the most complex thing I've cut so far

Certainly maxed out the size my MPCNC can cut, I keep postponing that rebuild to make it larger... sheet fixed with the classic masking tape + super glue combo, then the CNC drilled a bunch of strategically placed holes so I could screw it down, paused, moved out of the way, paused again, then proce...
