Are you able to figure out solution for it?
I did not. I installed new VMs with Debian Stable - I didn't have the patience to wait until the fix makes it into Testing :evil:

Re: coredump when loadin path workbench

I don't know Fedora, so can't really help. The only thing ever having as drastic consequences was the xml library mismatch in libcoin. This was an issue in Debian for quite a while, don't know about Fedora.

Re: is opToolDiameter a sensible default

3mm or 1/8 inch is more realistic as a starting default. Then from there, do all the damage you please! 3mm would break every bit I have on any operation I perform unless I start working in foam which would be pointless to me. The fact is there is not a single safe value unless we use 0 (which does...

Re: Ticket #4199: Path.Length reports wrong length

Ah, thanks for the ping. I created the bug so I wouldn't forget and then I forgot after all. Unfortunately I've upgraded all my VMs making any dev work impossible. Assuming nobody beats me to it I'll get on it as soon as I'm back in business. :mrgreen:

[solved] Heads up: build currently broken in Debian Testing due to python version mismatch

Debian testing currently pulls in a version of Shiboken2 which was built for python 3.8, but the installed python version itself is still 3.7. This results in an invalid setup and the build fails during the cmake phase: -- Found PythonInterp: /usr/bin/python3 (found suitable version "3.7.6", minimum...

Re: Help request for designing localized, parameterized Path tools

- should the FreeCAD file contain only a sketch which defines a the tool by rotating around Y-axis? The file should contain whatever is necessary so a solid representing the (spinning) tool is created. It would not be possible to visualise things like flute count or angle, or (as an example) one of...

Re: Complex pocketing?

I'm always amazed by what ppl are doing with FC in general and Path specifically - very impressive. Here's an example of a path that isn't working out well since it's avoiding the holes in the part: Assuming you use a PocketShape operation you can use the Extensions to cover up those holes. Having s...

Help request for designing localized, parameterized Path tools

We've been working on a new tool system for Path (tools as in cutters, drills, endmill, ....) and are trying to make the system flexible and user extensible. The idea is that anybody can define a parameterized shape for a tool bit, and then set the parameters for the actual bit. As an example, think...

Re: Feature #2916: Add knife align up function to locate knife at beginning cut precisely

One possibility is to not pick the point but let the user select one. If that's the case, why is it unique to dragknife and not a general purpose lead in? I like that, for all operations. It would be very flexible if the x/y coordinates of the start vertex were available to expressions. They're eas...
