Re: Transparency issue again

PS A suggestion to the developers: tick the box by default at installation, will save newcomers like me some time... The reason for the existing default is that the VBO causes problems in some systems. From the Tool Tip: If selected, Vertex Buffer Objects (VBO) will be used. A VBO is an OpenGL feat...

Re: Help in designing an Archimedes Wind Turbine

it is surprising it seems that there are only 2 propellers offset at 90 °, it must be unbalance :?: Some of the images seem to show only two blades, but when you look at more details it appears that three blades are used. Looks balanced. I have no idea if it is just "cute" or if it is really a good...

Re: Problem with simulate in path workbench

At the end of the Combo View you will find an entry named CutMaterial. Change the visibility to invisible (select and hit space bar), and the brown stuff will be hidden.

Re: time after time path to egde

This is of course a crutch - it works if you manually set the final depth value. That is an architectural decision that has been in place for some considerable time. For edges and faces the user needs to tell the operation how deep to process. If there is no selection, i.e., the complete model, the...

Re: Circle milled by using four arcs?

I was not trying to suggest you *must* upgrade. I was previously trying to understand why I see no problems with slowdowns between G-code steps, and you do see slowdowns. Now I understand. The LinuxCNC version is the reason. As I said above, I never see any problems at all related to segmented arcs....

Re: improving performance.

If the core of the language is unreliable it's a lot harder to fix. I don't think that reliability is the issue, but rather architectural choices. In my understanding Python is actually quite good about minimizing memory leaks, where something is just forgotten and left in place or not "destructed"...

LinuxCNC version 2.6.
OK, that explains everything. There were *major* improvements to the LinuxCNC Trajectory Planner for version 2.7. I do not think anything I said earlier applies to version 2.6.

Version 2.7 has been out for 5 years, and it will soon be replaced by 2.8.
