Re: Few remarks about Path/CAM real-life usage

I have successfully managed to go through the full Path/CAM workbench, but ran into few bumps during the journey: FreeCAD should warn about missing feed rates when doing the final post-processing step (using LinuxCNC). It seems that you need to set both Hor/Ver feed and spindle speed for each tool....

Re: material preferences

I like the idea of a material wb too. Path will need more material data in the future for setting feed/speed values on operations. That means you will have totally different material properties than FEM needs (mainly Young's modulus and poisons ratio, ATM) ? Yes, things like Brinell hardness that w...

Re: material preferences

This looks good... I would leave it in FEM fow now, then we can think of something better. Maybe both FEM and Arch could fire that page up? I quite like the fact that the material module has no WB, so it is directly integrated in all workbenches that use it... My idea was to make a wb for the mater...

Re: Projects to work with for a small team of C++/Python newbies

Hi Silas, Following up our IRC conversation, I think an interesting project could be built around integrating a Feed & Speed calculator into the Path workbench. Feed (forward motion of the tool) and Speed (rotation RPM) is critical to getting a good surface finish, tool life, and optimum machining t...

Knew it had to be there somewhere. Maybe change the icon to a snake cause if would have been one, it woulda bit me.

Hiding the view border

I want to make some screen shots of view objects in a TechDraw page but I want to turn off the view border. Is this possible?
Doesn't need to be in the gui so a python command is fine.

Re: Plan for Fillets?

Beats me! I think you've summed up why we don't have a solution yet :lol: Seriously, I see a couple different ways to approach this and they come with trade-offs. 1) A generalized pocketing approach: We take a cutter and try to remove as much material as we can. The cutter shape is never taken into...

Re: FC 0.17/Qt5 compatible NaviCube

It doesn't seem to respect the location setting in preference. I've set it to bottom-right and it moves when I apply.
If close and restart FreeCAD, it's back in top right position even though preference is still set to bottom right.

Re: Remove Unwanted Dogbones

Just open the dobbone dressup (double click it in the tree). There's a list of the dogbone locations. Disable the ones you don't want.
