Re: 2DPocket error with activated outline option

It extents the outer edges of the pocket. So you do not need to use fancy dress-up stuff to clean a pocket that reaches an outer geometry of the part. I would like to have this extension config on other Ops, too. If this simply extents a known face or a closed loop of edges building a face, every Op...

2DPocket error with activated outline option

Hi, I'm trying to generate a gcode for a little bit complicated part and get errors with the latest appimage. I try to break this down to isolate the problems. In the attaches project you see a simple 2D pocket OP with activated outline option. Without everything is fine. But activated I get: "9Stan...

Re: start M3 S

After a long break from 2017, yesterday I started to work g-code created in FC without manual editing. And at once I had to remember the old story - FC creates code, gives the command M3 Sxxxxx, the machine takes everything as written - ie instantly begins to move. In general, after the M3 command ...

Re: Omitting one or more sides when contouring/profiling

In case somebody has some time for testing, I did a POC for the "Boundary Dressup": https://github.com/mlampert/FreeCAD/tree/feature/path-constraint-dressup It was @schnebeck who provided the foundation - so all beers should go his way! Cool stuff! I donate my beer if this gets merged into the main...

Re: Omitting one or more sides when contouring/profiling

Just saw it with delight :D , but I didn't succeed in creating a partial path. Would you mind uploading your file for investigation? You have to recalculate the adaptive op, otherwise the file would be too big. You have to add the edges from part and stock in two passes. If you select edges from st...

Hey, that's a great solution for this recurring issue. Wish we had non cubic stock :mrgreen: .
Hmm, Stock can also be a cylinder or any existing solid, this includes helper plates ;-)

Re: Omitting one or more sides when contouring/profiling

I don't know if we already had this way - maybe its a new solution: Here I close the loop via a displaced stock and used my beloved adaptive inside ;-) Screenshot_20191028_151220.png This only works with adaptive, as this tool works not only with a strict but also with a "somehow" closed edge select...

Hi Thorsten,
it's not in this case, ;)

For the same question are 3 or 4 threads at the first page of Path help Forum... :roll: :roll:
I know... "Use a base plate, Luke" - but its still interesting if this is FC 0.16 or a later version.

Bye

Re: Omitting one or more sides when contouring/profiling

It would be easier to help you if you can attach a FreeCAD file and tell us something about your FreeCAD version ;-)
