Re: Lead in out dressup for inside profile

Same think for me working with a plasma cutter: My needs/wish list: - chose a individually start point for every cut. The profile operation supports a designated start point. If you require a custom startpoint for every cut, you can create individual profiles for just those edges/faces and then ass...

Re: Vcarve - bug or novice user

Mlampert has done some work refactoring vcarve to be faster and give cleaner paths. His pull request is pending but we're having some weird problems with the travis build so it hasn't been merged yet. The travis problem doesn't appear to be related to either vcarve or Path but I'm waiting until trav...

Re: Query: Post Processor for PLASMA CUTTING.

Thank you sliptonic for your help. In one of your suggestions, you tell me "and then adding operations." You can expand the idea. The rest, I hope that I have correctly understood what you are saying. Thank you very much again! operations are the building blocks of the job. ops.png They are the str...

Re: Query: Post Processor for PLASMA CUTTING.

I am in my first steps with modeling with FreeCAD (and I have no experience in CNC). I'm building a plasma cutting table, I'm going to use Mach 3 to control it. I understand that I need to use some post processor to convert the layout to G-code. Welcome! A lot of us started out here as hobbyists wi...

Re: Ticket #3750 - LeadInOutDressup does not work for circles

I'm doing mantis cleanup and this appears to be resolved.
Delete the dressup and re-add with a current build gives a path like this:

Re: Adaptive on outside gouge

But the way it is right now you can not trust it to not scrap your part. Exactly why FreeCAD (and every serious CAM tool) has simulation and visualization tools. Calculating tool paths involves a lot of math and a lot of assumptions that don't hold true in every case. Anything you can do to improve...
