Re: Creating CNC roughing and finishing passes

Back to the optimization. I see the files getting substantially smaller ... and the generation happening much faster! I can also see the "is point on the line" optimization. For example the points below are not intuitively on the same line (do not have the same Xs and Ys): G1 X-5.9726 Y3.4122 Z0.009...

Re: Creating CNC roughing and finishing passes

After verifying everything, I discovered that ... I must have accidentally downloaded the 32-bit version of 0.18.15280 Downloaded the 64-bit version and installed it followed by copying the ocl.pyd to bin as it was in 0.17 and ... it worked. Subsequently I moved ocl.pyd to Mod/Path as suggested and ...

Re: Creating CNC roughing and finishing passes

Thanks Chris,

Can you check where the ocl.pyd file is located on your system?

Thanks

Re: Creating CNC roughing and finishing passes

Yes "EnableExperimentalFeatures" is set to true. I did that the first time and the new installation did not change that (just verified). And the ocl.pyd is freshly copied into the "bin" directory from the previous (0.17) version and yet I am still getting the "This operation requires OpenCamLib to b...

Re: Creating CNC roughing and finishing passes

I started getting the "This operation requires OpenCamLib to be installed." error again. I had that installed over 0.18 before but now after installing the new one somehow it disappeared. As far as I remember I copied opencamlib from 0.17 installation which still works. Can somebody remind me what o...

Re: Creating CNC roughing and finishing passes

... https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/pull/1773 It has been in master for almost a month now. I don't know when the last 0.18 has been released..? If you used a project that was created before that, it might be that you need to recreate the surface op to see the effect. There should be a checkbox ...

Re: Creating CNC roughing and finishing passes

I was just wondering if roivai's optimization has made it to the official code base yet. I downloaded the latest 0.18 release and redid the post-processing of a project I was using some time ago and... as far as I can tell there is no difference in the generated gcode file.

Re: Creating CNC roughing and finishing passes

Hmm, said I'd work on the optimization some weeks ago, but finding spare time turned out to be harder than expected, once again. But I finally managed to make a trial on optimization of the OCL DropCutter output in 3D Surface OP. Still some polishing to do but I'm well past my bed time, so thought ...

V-Carving

Is it possible (or are there any plans to make it possible) to generate V-Carving paths with FreeCAD? I was browsing the Internet for something like that and came across this open source program named F-Engrave which is written in Python: F-Engrave The author also published the math behind it: F-Eng...
