Re: Feature request: Multiple horizontal passes on Profile/Contour?

Morning FC users, I just submitted Path: Profile - New `ExpandProfile` feature for compound profile operations #3545 . It clears each layer laterally first, before stepping down to clear the next layer. From the PR description on GitHub: "This version is the inverse method to the previously proposed...

Re: Help with Generating Tool Paths for a Specific Model

Morning Gentlemen, Clearly I miscommunicated the point, which is improved functionality of MillFace. How a user chooses to mill a part for best quality and efficiency is there choice. The part presented here is a great example for demonstration of the new feature. Say for discussion's sake that a us...

Re: Capturing base geometry

Morning, Would be nice to be able to save/copy selected geometry from one operation to another. Okay, so I had an idea and pulled an all-nighter. My wife reminded me it is now 4:00 am in OUR time zone. Well, it is done, except for removing a few lines of code needed to test without compiling. When I...

Re: Help with Generating Tool Paths for a Specific Model

Okay. This problem, or lack of capability, with MillFace has been around way too long! One solution is in the PR cue as Path: MillFace - Add `Face Region` method to boundary shape options #3534 . We should not have to create helper pads for milling the tops of the posts (for example) in the model pr...

Re: Capturing base geometry

Would be nice to be able to save/copy selected geometry from one operation to another. This is where PathWB 2.0 is headed, if I understand current discussions on the future of said workbench. Although, it could be implemented now. Add a ComboBox in the Base Geometry panel to allow selection of base...

Re: How do I disable a feature in a FreeCAD build?

Mr. Hassan, Good morning, Sir. The level of modification to which you refer will likely require a reasonable amount of modification to the source code. Such modifications as disabling the `Help` and `Macro` menu options from the Gui are not available as simple flags within CMake configuration. These...

Afternoon, ... A.) When i select the Face3 to clear the outside of the part, the paths goes through the part. ... Just wanted to let you know I believe I have found the error in the code, or rather the function/algorithm that needs to be improved. I haven't begun to fix it yet. I will try to tackle ...

Then the gC...
