Re: Intersecting contours pocket.

Sure. But I thought it was clear from the screenshot... Those circles are in one sketch and grove works perfectly fine. First they were just touching - no problem there. Then I moved them closer togerher and realized that they were intersecting and would probably make just the outer contour from ar...

Re: g2core CAM

Anyone using G2Core to controll their CNC and FreeCad as their CAM solution? Is G2Core an open source project? If so where is its website or where is it hosted? I just did a search and did not find it, maybe that is why no one uses it, because they can't find it and don't know it exist? I recently ...

Re: How to activate openCamLib after compiling it

Your FreeCAD Python version is 3.6.8 and your building OCL for 2.7. Not going to work. Please let me know if you get OCL to build with Python 3.6.8. on 18.04.2, and how you did it. Haven't figured that one out yet....

Re: How to leave small gaps in cutting paths?

There was a thread on this - https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=32658 but for now, there is ...

I'd like to prevent cut out parts from blocking the plotter. Is there a way to add small gaps in the (laser) contour cuts?

Re: How can I convert my sketch to a body in PartDesign

So are you saying I can't add or import a sketch into a body in PartDesign? That seems like a major problem because Part workbench can't do all the things you can do in PartDesign. If all you have in your document is a sketch, just add the body on the same plane as the sketch. If the body already e...
