Re: OpenNURBS 3DM file support?

As of 2020 this feature it is steel needed! McNeel just release better libraries for Python, Javascript and .NET: rhino3dm is a set of libraries based on the OpenNURBS geometry library with a "RhinoCommon" style. This provides the ability to access and manipulate geometry through .NET, Python or Jav...

Re: 3D Surface - Face Selection (New feature)

I forgot to say, as I am mechanising wood, I need only a 0.1mm precision but at the highest possible speed! It is there into the Path Workbench a setting that can be changed and determine how precise needs to be the gcode output?

Re: 3D Surface - Face Selection (New feature)

3D surface tips and tricks: When preparing a path always start with a larger tool than you ultimately want. Use 100% stepover Always tick Optimize Select large intervals 1-2mm The path should be computed rather quick and be imprecise, but you can tweak the pattern and details easily until you feel ...

Re: Assembly 4 workbench

Hi guys, sorry to interrupt the party, I just have a pertinent question. It is possible to merge all the Assemblies Workbenches into just one Assembly Workbench? Because otherwise the things are getting very confusing here!

Re: 3D Surface - Face Selection (New feature)

As others have noted, start with simple models. I messed around with surfacing one face on this skull and it took several hours to complete. Down to 30 minutes after adjusting some parameters. Still learning... I do actually selected only one face from the model, but even for the smallest ones from...

Re: 3D Surface - Face Selection (New feature)

There are issues in the Stl File... What kind of geometry would be better then? I can export from Rhino in a lot of formats. Unfortunately FreeCAD can't read Rhino .3DM files so I need to export in some NURBS format to get smooth shapes. I seen that FreeCAD can read STP and IGES files. IGES_Export....

Re: 3D Surface - Face Selection (New feature)

It is there a preferred format for importing geometry in FreeCAD? If I export from Rhino I do have some option when saving as IGES or STP files. Are this settings important or irrelevant for the Path module?

@zohozer:
can we have the 'original' - document to find there an issue?
When not, you can send it with PM?
Yes, it is just a .step file imported from Rhino. Maybe it is something wrong with the geometry, or the import process needs some adjustments?
