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...

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 ;-)

Re: Dogbone dressup not on one corner

Use "Adaptive" - it works the way you want. ;)

Re: Is Path workbench up to the task

I've recently build my cnc machine and I need to mill a wing like object out of a piece of wood. While I can only estimate the size of your machine it looks a little bit weak for its size, no rails, no ballskrews - more like a big 3D printer but not really suited for milling. Maybe softwood and eng...
