Re: Complex pocketing?

This is not a complex part to pocket just a very tedious 2D tool path. Nothing about this part is 3D Surfacing what so ever. There are a lot of ways to do this job. There are a lot of things to consider. It is a pretty straight forward task. I have attached some amusing possible cuts with an 1/8 end...

Is this a bug? Macro works once then object has no attribute 'shape'

So I create a simple box sketch and I select one of the edges in the sketch that travels along the x axis. I then run this macro and get exactly what I expect a toolpath called my path. I select the opposite line going in the X direction and run the code and get an error saying the object now does n...

Re: Vertex positions for Gcode template

I selected a single point on this sketch and ran this code. I then selected another point and ran the code. I did all four corners of the sketch. This picture illustrates the results of running this code every time i selected a point. Is this the information you are looking for? Those G code command...

Re: GCode Importing To a ToolPath

I will give out my python code all day long but I do not want to ever compile another piece of software ever in my life. I don't even know where i would begin. Honestly though I don't feel I am up to the task of helping contribute to the code under the hood of FreeCad. I wish I could personally than...

Re: GCode Importing To a ToolPath

It is very much the same but it is still different. The biggest difference is I can't control the one and the other one is code. Plus when you use FreeCads import from the file menu you get to choose a processor and the example_pre is the only one that seems to generate anything visible on my screen...

GCode Importing To a ToolPath

Here is some code to take unknown or known GCode from a file and then create a tool path from that gcode. This Script has a FileDialog box pop up so you can select your .txt .ngc .nc or whatever you named your file. Then it turns that files gcode into a tool path. NOTE Create a new file in freecad t...

Re: Computer Aided Manufacturing Tutorial ( Path Workbench)

Charles1954 I have made a video just for you hope this helps.
NOTE
I did not change the start position of the path and that can be done in the data area.

Here is the link to the video. https://youtu.be/xWdTofPfoms

Re: PathWorkbench FeatureArea tool and Reversing a Step file to create tool paths

- FeatureArea is based on sketches or wires I believe it is based on the an Area and the objects in the Area can be faces, points edges and all kinds of fun stuff. I can not really answer this because I don't know but the way I see it it is based on a given Area. - it works basically without a job. ...
