Re: Adaptive (?) Rouging Pockets and sort of trochoidal profiles with Openvoronoi

Terve Anders, great to hear from you! 1. Licensing. Would a change to LGPL make building/linking/packaging with FreeCAD easier? - please post an issue on github explaining the situation and what would be the desired license. I let others comment about licensing. I have no clue, except for reading th...

Adaptive (?) Rouging Pockets and sort of trochoidal profiles with Openvoronoi

I've been toying around with OpenVoronoi ( https://github.com/aewallin/openvoronoi ) for a while every now and then. Just for fun mostly, but I think the results are nice, so thought I can show some here. The library contains (experimental) medial axis pocketing algorithm which I used. I find that t...

Re: New Chamfer op

Absolutely! For clarity, I removed other ops, only chamfers are there.

Re: New Chamfer op

This is good addition! Are inside edges supposed to be supported? At least on my first trial, this came out: 2018-07-09-081605_1920x1080_scrot.png On the other hand, when selecting a face with both inside and outside features, both came out right. But, like you say, adding the chamfer to a face adds...

Re: New approach to Tool and Op editors.

I think the idea is great! When used as a separate dialog it looks good but as a task dialog, with default panel width, the usability is not too great. input boxes for D and H are too narrow.. Also, the panel has a vertical scroll bar even though there would be tons of space below the panel..? 2018-...

Re: Limiting path on 3D operations

The PR is submitted. https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/pull/1542 Repeating myself from yesterday, but here are the changes: -The drop cutter operation respects FinalDepth parameter, i.e. never cuts below that. When the operation is created, the OpFinalDepth is guessed and I find that the guess is w...

Re: Limiting path on 3D operations

One remaining issue that would greatly benefit surface profiling would be the ability to used non-cylindrical cutters, specifically ball-end cutters. I suspect this adds quite a bit of complexity to the drop cut process, but I believe that the original Anders Wallin OpenCamLib supports some non-cyl...

Re: Limiting path on 3D operations

Reviving and old'ish thread.. Yesterday I tried using the 3D Surface OP for the first time. After reading quite a few forum threads highlighting the problems with it, I was actually surprised that it worked almost out of the box. But I ran into exactly the problem described in the start of this thre...

Problems with Z tolerances on RampEntryDressup

Hi, When trying to generate some screeshots for documenting the Ramp Entry Dressup like discussed on this thread , I ran into issues with a very simple Path. Essentially just a contour around 50x50x10mm box with step down of 3mm. The problem is, that with helix ramp method, the last round of the loo...

Re: Documentation for RampEntry

Thank you Chris! It looks very good. Hope you get your mill back in action soon! The only thing that I can think of: Dressup Start Depth is the distance above the target level where ramping starts is a bit misleading in my (non-English) mind. It kind of says to me that this parameter is a delta betw...
