Re: Limiting path on 3D operations

That looks promising, can it work on a circular shape? That's one of the things that dropcutter can't handle, no matter how restrained the area is.

At any rate the bounding box of selected faces would already be a first approximation for area selective (feature selective) 3D pathing.

Re: finish path with tag dress-up

Well i meant placing datum points where we expect tabs to be placed, then the tabs are centrally referenced for any OP. And on the same topic, a machining plane is a datum plane that becomes the normal plane for machining. It's an approach used when milling with multi axis. Specifically when you hav...

Re: finish path with tag dress-up

Could work features be used for this purpose? My recent bout with Siemens NX CAM showed the tremendous usefulness of datum points (probing cycles) datum planes (machining plane) etc...that are used as base feature for using some Path OPs. So if you could place your tag points parametrically as datum...

Re: Freecad: grande amélioration en vue!

Oui tout ce qui est positionnement geometrique deja sera bien mieu géré par les esquisses. Utiliser les esquisses pour controler les variables numériques donne par ailleurs un repère visuel (tableau de bord). Enfin, et j'adore les spreadsheets, la création de variable dans les spreadsheets est un pe...

Re: State of Assembly 2

Bypassing the drama, those who read me on the forums will know where I stand there :) Would it be correct to consider that assembly2 is indeed maintained but not actively being developped? (and I kindof hope dev ressources are being funneled into A2+; A3 and A4 (without solver)). In which case we co...

Re: Store the version number in the file

Hey vocx, I think where freedman is coming from is that if the feeecad version info was watermarked with the file, asking for help/generating a bug report/discussing a behavior would be faster on the forum, we simply try to make it standard to share the file. It reduces theback and forth of asking f...

Re: Feature request: Layers on Sketcher

Having suffered with layers working with AutoCAD trying to create parts. I generally leave multiple layers to drawings and architecture. Complexity (sometimes a direct result of too much modularity) just doesn't jive well with my engineering approach. That being said, your request is not unreasonabl...

Re: Adaptive Path/CAM Operation

I'm no mathematician, barely more than a pleeb in the discipline, but: -Assuming a contiguous series of segments of roughly the same lengths (roughly being an accuracy parameter) -The end points of a series of two consecutive segments approximate the orientation of the tangent. -That tangent can be ...
