Re: Start Points and order in face based toolpaths

This is great - I saw a PR being merged shortly which will sort all feature processing according to their position. It'll change behaviour quite a bit so an automatic selection makes a lot of sense. Have to look into that, do you happen to have the PR#? If I understand correctly, then yes. I'll be ...

Re: Start Points and order in face based toolpaths

Had some time again and updated the Startpoint picker from 2 posts above, for single engagement-point operations this works well. Also it produces less screen clutter(on parts with many ops) as a screen full of green spheres like the holdingtag gui does. Does it's behavior match what #3481 needs for...

For startpoints on the toolpath just run as is. If you want a startpoint outside the solid set your stock appearance to either: Flat L...

Re: Start Points and order in face based toolpaths

Taking as an example your image below with an outside contour and five inside contours. Each of the inside contours is a wire with one or more edges and the CNC must rapid between them. If the user picks five points to identify start points, you must keep track of which point corresponds to which w...

Re: Dressup Leadin Remake

Just a thing i noticed: Besides preventing errors caused between the steering-wheel and driver seat, because the amount off settings to be correct. One of it's issues is the placement off leadout end on inside profiles should be on the same point as the leadinstart and not inside the solid Setting a...
