Re: Adaptive Path/CAM Operation

Hi, If someone is interested in Adaptive toolpaths, you may check the mod: https://github.com/kreso-t/FreeCAD_Mod_Adaptive_Path This is the first version entirely written in python (it is using pyclipper lib), so there is a potential for performance improvements. However it also seem quite usable a...

Re: [DEV] Tool Editor GUI

All data we have now is relevant for path creation now or in the future, while I cannot see the difference between paths being tooled by an SK40 or SK50 cone. As I said in the post with the data, the dimensions for the taper section are greyed out because we don't need them, however the taper numbe...

IMO it's worth looking at optional primary and secondary holder information if users want advanced simulations and crash avoidance.

Re: [DEV] Tool Editor GUI

To be honest I cannot see the benefit for Path workbench to know all these measures. To calculate paths it needs the diameter, the shape of the tool and the length, from some reference point, perhaps PTHL2+SHL+SO. What should the rest of the values be used for? Is it for crash avoidance? You are co...

Re: [DEV] Tool Editor GUI

Update: My current thoughts are to split the tooling in to 3 parts: 1. Primary tool holder 2. Secondary tool holder 3. Cutting tool I have started trying to rationalise how each type of holder can be represented. None of this work is completed but I would like to show what I have for the purposes of...

Stretch goal: maybe a user could put a tool list under version control by linking it to a github repo.
This would allow consistant tool tables to exist accross mulitple machines too. That would be very helpful indeed.

Re: Export Template Button

It is possible to access an export template button in the context menu.

Not sure if there is another way.

Re: [DEV] Tool Editor GUI

I think it would be really nice to be able to read the tool table from my CNC controller. I could then set up all my tools in just one place. That's another factor that I hadn't mentioned, that for some machines, there are variable stored in the control. For me, that would be a pain because the con...
