Re: Slot profile issue

You need to set your geometry tolerance and curve accuracy lower.

Re: ToolBits and Tool holders

I can't reproduce this. From what I read, the default in QT is for the file selection dialog to be case insensitive. Testing on my system, it is. I see all .fcstd files regardless of capitalization.

Will you please double check and report back with your FreeCAD info?

Re: Path Conversational Possible?

The 'conversational CAM' I'm familiar with seems to presume a close communication between CAM logic and machine controller. To calculate a toolpath, the CAM needs information about the state of the machine that can't be known otherwise. Also, they seem to be limited to glorified macros for basic poc...

Re: Generating efficient tool paths

Sliptonic is mentioning: "With gcode, a move is always relative to the previous position. Since the first move in a job is relative to wherever the cutter is currently positioned and Path doesn't know that, it uses the part placement in order to render the first red rapids. This does NOT mean the c...

Adding shape to scenegraph

I'm trying to learn a little more about Pivy/Coin and the scenegraph. I thought this would be easy and went looking for some example code but couldn't find any. If I have an OCC Shape object, can I get the open inventor representation and add it directly to the scenegraph? I know I can get it's repr...

Re: Co -Ordinate system
