Re: G43 tool length compensation

Wait. Back the horse up.

Is this topic even relevant? I think the TLO partial operation is deprecated and not even accessible anymore.

The Tool property stores the length offset value but I don't think it's being used anymore.

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong

Re: request for wiki page for addaptive

That's a mostly accurate summary. To be pedantic, it's probably trying to manage cutter engagement rather than material removal rate but those two are almost identical in practice. It's also not keeping it constant but it's ensuring that engagement never exceeds a maximum. Engagement can often be le...

Re: G43 tool length compensation

is someone who understands perhaps able to edit this page: https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/Path_ToolLenthOffset simple question really is when would this be set to anything other than 0? and are there any gotchas? I'd have a crack at that page but I fear I am so woefully ignorant on gcode that I wo...

Re: FreeCAD generate G-Code file for NCCAD7.5

shouldn't/couldn't these be added to the FC Add-On macros? They could but I don't think they will. Many of these will come from casual users who hack it together for their specific machine and are willing to share. They may not be (probably aren't) familiar with git/github. If any of these starts g...

Re: FreeCAD generate G-Code file for NCCAD7.5

That's a good question. On the one hand, commonly used posts should be distributed with freecad so should go through the regular pull request process. But there will always be development, discussion, and sharing of posts for lesser known machines. Maybe we should have a pinned thread at the top of ...

Re: MPCNC: Trial with Pen

To clarify, the sketch is fine. It's the operation that contains a bogus sketch item.
Just open the operation, go to the geometry list and remove that edge.

Re: MPCNC: Trial with Pen

Hi Abdullah,
It looks like there's something wrong with the sketch.

It contains a Edge10 that isn't real. Removing that seems to fix it.

Re: pythonical adding all the holes to an operation

- All holes, regardless of diameter and depth are detected which is fine. - I can however imagine a case in which the pinboard would have alternate diameters, one for pins and one for threaded and fixturing. - In this case, being able to process "groups" of holes" might be useful. I wonder if the P...

Re: FreeCAD generate G-Code file for NCCAD7.5

The extension isn't important. It's the file contents that matter. Gcode files are often found with extensions like .nc .tap .gcode .ngc etc. As long as the contents are ascii gcode commands, you can just rename the file. Post processors can be easily adapted to write the file with any extension you...
