Re: Resent change adds fixture without possibility to disable

GRBL uses work coordinate systems as well. It defaults to G54 like linuxcnc Just because you don't need the feature now doesn't mean you won't in the future so it's important that we get it right. I've started a branch called bug/wcs here: https://github.com/sliptonic/FreeCAD/tree/bug/wcs It adds an...

Re: Help drawing tube....

Hi and welcome, For future reference, please refer to the link at the top about 'read before asking for help.' It has some useful information about how to get and post your FreeCAD info. For this question, it doesn't make much difference but for other problems we need much more than just the FreeCAD...

Re: Resent change adds fixture without possibility to disable

There's two different things to talk about; the coordinate systems, and that G0 move that you say is crashing. The WCS You didn't say which postprocessor you're using. If it's linuxcnc, the preamble has always inserted a G54. After the change, the preamble G54 is still there but probably doesn't nee...

You need to give us a bit more to go on. What are you trying to achieve?
What results are you seeing that aren't right?

Re: CNC Lathe and 4th-axis milling...

So, the FC addiction is pretty bad... It's not so bad. We'll start a twelve step program soon :lol: I had an idea and ran with it. After the third revision, this is the trial run for adding 4th axis to the standard PathPocket too in PathWB. This is very cool. It looks like you and mlampert are thin...

Re: Standardized test shapes

... ...not sure what could be added. That's a great topic for discussion! I can think of several areas that i've intended to work on and haven't gotten to yet: Parts with features that need boundary extension 3D drilling on a 4th Axis (outside of rotary) 3D drilling on a trunnion table (inside of r...

Re: Python3 compile of OCL gives only 2.7

I assume that FreeCAD isn't doing anything special to find python modules. It's searching the paths in sys.path and then any directories defined in the environment variable PYTHONPATH. PYTONPATH is meant for you to add custom directories to be searched and that's the easiest way to fix it for a loca...

Re: Why i don´t get rapid feed between the holes

My question to sliptonic is out of curiosity: is that a voluntary feature or simply that "tick" [Process Holes] is not yet coded to generate rapids. It's a bug. At least it's an unintended consequence of the way the operation is coded. I'd love to see it fixed but since there's an adequate work-aro...
