Re: Help with linuxcnc_post?

I am trying to export the CutMaterial object from the attached document to a gcode file using the linuxcnc_post processor. um, you don't export the cutmaterial object, you select the job and click the post process buttonn; honestly I don't think the cut material object should be even added to the d...

Re: Help with linuxcnc_post?

works for me, both 0.18 and 0.19: set postprocessor to linuxcnc, file name %D/%d.ngc, post process -> popup dialog shows up, file gets saved.

Re: drilling op refuses user values

I tend to see the UI fail to update values quite a lot, actually, especially if the job is built from a template: in pocket / contour / helix operations I can't clear the expression and the value I enter there is ignored, resulting in broken operations (zero step-down tends to result in division by ...

Re: cnc kitchens and nesting in 8 x 4 sheets

I, for one, couldn't get Arch nesting to work (it fails on me after placing the first 2 pieces or something like that), and it doesn't let you add spaces between parts, so you're limited to using a zero diameter cutter (which is, well, hard to find, even laser beams have some width), or you need to ...

Re: 3d printed housing for brewing thermostat

Probably the cleanest way to do parametric designs is with a spreadsheet; the second cleanest (and the one I tend to find more intuitive) is to have a master sketch (either not used anywhere and serving just as a repository for dimensions, or the way I tend to do it, the first sketch is the master s...

Re: gCode documentation for post-processor developers

Just a note - you cannot rely on any restrictions. The user can insert any g-code, standard or non-standard, via a custom operation. true, but you'd expect for the user to know their machine and input valid GCode there :) I think the idea was to know what Path itself is likely to output so it can b...

Re: gCode documentation for post-processor developers

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G-code has a good list looking at the ones you marked with question marks: G40 turns off tool radius compensation; since FreeCAD will do the compensation itself, you need this (or the equivalent for the machine) in your preamble G41 and G42 are tool radius compensation ...

Re: 3d printed housing for brewing thermostat

possibly offtopic, but: Am I doing everything wrong? Didn't find any method or even a tip in user's documentation or in tutorials. What was most difficult for me: 1. Sketcher tool: - rectangle with rounded corners had to be drawn manually, constraining fewteen things by hand, instead of just picking...
