Re: FreeCad Path problem

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: Standardized test shapes

Absolutely!

How about adding an internal thread to the end?

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...

Standardized test shapes

I believe the first step to a better, faster, more reliable CAM system is better test shapes. If you aren't a programmer but want to help out, this is a good place to get involved. What do you guys think? If you agree, I'd like to pin this topic so it doesn't get buried. https://youtu.be/GRZaxsTeV8A

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

It looks like you selected the top face for profile and then set the depth down to the bottom.

If, instead, you select the cylindrical faces for all the holes, you'll get rapid moves between them

Python3 compile of OCL gives only 2.7

I'm trying to install OpenCamLib on linux mint. I have previously compiled and installed for python 2.7 and everything works. I created a new out of source build directory and use this line to build: cmake -DBUILD_PY_LIB=1 -DUSE_PY_3=1 -DBUILD_CXX_LIB=0 ../opencamlib && make -j3 But it only seems to...
