Re: Adaptive Path/CAM Operation

I would definitely go for having this in Path but want more people testing and weighing in.

What about pybind11? Does that add a new dependency for FreeCAD? If so, that might require some discussion too.

Re: Adaptive Path/CAM Operation

I will try building and testing this as soon as I can.
I really wish you'd consider developing this inside Path with an eye towards a full PR. It would make it much easier to get testers and eventually merged.

Re: Add a ball end mill to the Path Workbench Tool Library

James, With a couple of exceptions the only end mill parameter used at this time is the diameter. (That means the ball-end designation does not really do anything.) Two exceptions are: * The simulation operation requires a cutting length. * The drilling operation can use the tip angle to calculate ...

Re: Using TOOL-Change

As you've probably already figured out, the system keeps track of which tool controller is being used for the operation. If it detects a tool change it adds an M6 <toolnumber> command to the command list. When the post-processor is doing its thing, it can insert additional commands right before this...

Re: Question for Sliptonic concerning the finish selecting loop tool

I'm not so sure. For edges, the loopdetect iterates all the wires in the shape and eliminates wires that don't contain both edges. Even now, the edges don't have to be connected and the loopdetect will still work. The difference between the proposed change and the old behavior isn't detection, it's ...

Re: Cannot get value from invalid enumeration

I think that's got it.

I still see "Enumeration index -1 is out of range, ignore it" in the report view but not the error.

Re: Question for Sliptonic concerning the finish selecting loop tool

To distinguish the full and the segment function I would vote for one of these mini dropdown icons like in Sketcher for arc or circle. Finally it would be great if that selection tool would work outside of Path workbench. Do we need two buttons? I would assume if two sequential segments are selecte...

Re: PATH: Importing external gcode into JOB?

Thanks. So it is the preprocessor that creates this object? Would it be good to modify any preprocessor to use first or selected (if I can find out how to do that) job and create Custom path with it's output, as a temporary fix? Or should there be another kind of path object for import? If I get to...
