Re: Is Path workbench up to the task

Don't worry, no offence detected here. I'm just curious. Hello, I came back here just to satisfy your curiosity. My experience with Fusion360 is very positive. It's a totally different level and cannot be compared to Freecad. Not perfect, but very easy, works very well and the cam part is very effi...

Re: Is Path workbench up to the task

I had time to experiment with the original model and to save some time I only worked with half of it.I projected lines through the mesh in a few places and created some surfaces that are a good approximation,but no more than that,just to establish the principles.At both the tip and the centre I add...

Re: Is Path workbench up to the task

I'm giving FreeCad one last chance.... Do you think PathWB could work tihs, by first milling the upper part, than in a second step with a clone of the piece up side down???? The .fcstd file is quite large 70mb, but I can upload it somewhere if needed. Screenshot from 2019-03-27 16-29-51.png Screensh...

Re: Is Path workbench up to the task

the Path worbench did not perform as I was expecting, most probably because I'm not using it correctly, i You're not giving us much to go on here. What were you expecting? What did you get? I have quite a few videos in my youtube channel dedicated to Path workbench. I would suggest you get started ...

Re: Is Path workbench up to the task

Hi @joaopcrodrigues Please, first explain what was not satisfactory in your basic use case test. As expecting things will improve in more complex use cases, they won't. From the description, we will likely be able to figure out, if it's due to Path or things like build quality of your machine. Or i...

Is Path workbench up to the task

Hi, I've recently build my cnc machine and I need to mill a wing like object out of a piece of wood. My firsts tests with Path workbench and a simple object were not very satisfactory, and I was wondering if it is up to the task for more complex things like a wing? Best regards.

Re: Boolean operations

After days of struggling.... fixed it.

The stl had to be repaired using another software (meshlab) before importing. After thins and transforming it to a solid, all bollean worked.

Cheers.

I want to be able to get: 1- The solid intersection between the fuselage and the cube. 2- The solid...
