Re: sorting helixes to make efficent path

Sounds like you guys are getting things "Sorted Out" :lol: !

Time for a Cupper/or Mugger!

Woolshed still in operation?
Surfer's Paradise Grand Prix still happening or has it been moved?

And most of all; remember to Dodge, duck, dip, dive and dodge (movie: Dodgeball reference) from those Lorikeets!

Re: pythonical adding all the holes to an operation

I can't remember ever seeing a model with more than 10 holes to be drilled. Yeah, right! On a CNC machine none the less! Programming is only half the battle; the other half is what to program. le coon is just trying to provide some of the latter; "domain expertise" as well as he/myself/anybody-else...

Re: pythonical adding all the holes to an operation

Then call it SELECT ALL - more equivalent to findAll(); anything but Reset. It is not obvious or intuitive Question: Path-Hoppa: When one opens up the drilling OP (and i just did), and the UI is blank, why on earth would you click on resetting-nothing? Except for that is just one of the ways it work...

Re: cryptic blue arrows

The "cryptic blue" or "cryptic grey" arrows?
You must be referring to the "Set Depth To Selected Plane/Edge!
Plane is "typical" but edges are sometimes the only feature accessible at a specific level (might be a bug).
Another "Tool-Tip" from Path-HOPpa.

PS. I actually find these selectors invaluable!

Re: Adaptive Path/CAM Operation

Sorry, dont have the file anymore and dont remember since Ive moved on to other solutions to complete the machining. Ended up using FEATUREAREA (silver-bullet) and a lot of BSTs :cry: to roll my own path. I have a lot of confidence in russ's efforts. Is he actually a.k.a. "Scott Evil"? :lol: No!, ju...

Re: Adaptive Path/CAM Operation

...to quote the Zen of Python, "There should be one-- and preferably only one --obvious way to do it.".... :lol: This is the kind of fish hook that would have never got man to the moon! <weakhumor> Have you ever met two programmers simultaneously in the same room; the only thing obvious, is that th...

Re: Adaptive Path/CAM Operation

yeah, I know what OCL does. But currently, its not living up to its potential like when I used it in HEEKs CAD. If it is no big deal to make such a mod, its a good option/temporary solution. Just like in an old school machine shop, the more tools, jigs, fixtures, and etc. the better; it does not cha...

Re: Adaptive Path/CAM Operation

Hey kreso, As an option selection, what are the chances/how difficult of modifying Path-Adaptive Op to just applying the waterline path segments and no material clearing to stock. This way one could execute a normal Adaptive Op to clear material and follow it up with a secondary adapt-op/more preci...
