Re: Rotated holes result in different sized Helix tool paths.

First of all, I dont call this a bug. It is just the way "Hole-Detection" was implemented at the time (now, we know better from testing), and Ive seen it as a long term problem that had to be acknowledged and compensated for through the user "awareness". Shifted geometries need to be dealt with as b...

Re: Rotated holes result in different sized Helix tool paths.

Its really getting on my nerves that there is so much resistance to change in this forum, there is always a lot of blow back even when fixing things that are clearly bugs. Deja Blues, :lol: But your not a troll; NO! :D A good forum moderator would have chastized you for that ignorant comment! AFAIC...

Re: Hiding Jobs / Ops

Here you are taking out too big a hammer, especially for the Path forum..... You are probably correct hchris! If you want to see something fixed, by all means, fix it! But don't complain... Equivalent: code it yourself. That comment is the single most destructive "clever" saying on the board; Ive n...

Re: Hiding Jobs / Ops

Agreed. I was expecting the same behaviour as other FreeCAD elements. I.e. Yes, this has been a PATH - "USABILITY" weakness for me, for a long time; lacking propagation of behavior. ...This would make the path workflow a fair but smoother imo.... No doubt! You have to hide the job and the operation...

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...
