Re: Creating CNC roughing and finishing passes

Great! I had this in mind when I last time used 3D Surface, but as LinuxCNC was happy to swallow the huge G-Code, I forgot the whole thing. I think I'll try to find some time this week to implement that on Python so we can add it straight to the operation.

Re: Creating CNC roughing and finishing passes

Hi, The changes that included the StepOver parameter also made the operation to respect the Finish Depth (edit: or is it Final Depth..? cant check now) Is that set correctly? For me at least, the guess that FreeCAD makes for that by default is often at the surface of the object, which seems to be th...

Re: Adaptive Path/CAM Operation

Ok, as I am not familiar with the process of testing and approving the FreeCAD PRs - would it help if I make these changes now in the forked FreeCAD code (i.e. in my github profile)? I could probably do that in the next few days. Yes - that's how it should be done. Fork the official FreeCAD repo on...

Re: Adaptive Path/CAM Operation

I tried it quickly - worked great! I think the performance was OK'ish.. I'm not sure how, but initially, the algorithm took quite a while to run, it visualized all the steps on screen and then produced the final path. But then when I changed some settings, the path also updated "on the fly" with no ...

Re: Adaptive Path/CAM Operation

If you have time to write, I would be very interested in hearing details about the algorithm you use. Documentation will also be useful if (and I sincerely hope) it does get integrated into FreeCAD at some point. Is there some published theory about the algorithm or is it completely yours? I quickly...

Re: Adaptive Path/CAM Operation

WWWOW! Out of the blue, this comes out. The screenshots you have there look really amazing! That feature - clearing the area between the stock and the object is the thing everyone has been waiting for, I think! Great job! Wow!

Re: Sorted Drills

PR for making the list sortable.
https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/pull/1581

Quickly tested and it works as supposed. Is anyone able to spot any side effects of this?

Re: Sorted Drills

There is some ideas i have: - the Base Geometry-List should sort the entries by Pressing the Diameter-"Button", so its easy to remove the "wrong" holes Good proposal Yes it is. I am pretty sure it was possible at some point, maybe something got lost when the refactoring of all Path Ops was done. I ...

Hi roivai,
Two more questions:
Is it possible to get it work at a single 3D surface face also? And at a hollow shaped surface?
The operation still accepts only the whole base object as the base of the surface. I don't understand what you mean by hollow?
