Re: Helix machining for circular holes

Heh, looks like whoever moved the code to PathUtils missed my last fix, I was wondering why it was drilling the first hole twice again...

Re: Helix machining for circular holes

Found a weakness with the sorting algorithm. Luckily I had a quick E-Stop finger. ;) When cutting a hole where there are two different diameters at different heights at the same XY location, like one in the picture, the sorting probably picks the order rather randomly? At least in my case, it start...

Re: How to validate Gcode as per tool size

some processes already complain if the tool size doesn't work (I saw something along the lines of "can't drill 4mm hole with a 5mm tool" at some point)

Another possibility is to start with a common base plate which you finally cut away in the Path Workbench.
if only there was a hexagonal array in there... :)

Re: Arch Panel Cut from padded sketch doesn't work.

Next I tried padding the sketch, then select the pad (or body) and creating an Arch Panel from it. The pad turns brown and becomes a Panel in the tree, but when I try to create a Panel Cut from it, nothing is shown and the object.Shape has an empty edge list. Am I missing a vital step? I had to do ...

Re: [ticket #2998] Sketch with 2 shapes (rings) wont pad - Broken face

So it's a feature, not a bug? I noticed the problem this week-end, at the beginning of last week a multi-object pad worked (I'm on the freecad-daily ppa). Having to create multiple bodies when you want a number of objects spaced at precise distances is ... annoying to say the least Real world use ca...

Re: Helix machining for circular holes

I think it is good to have a well defined algorithm. Although it is easy to fool the next neighbour algorithm it is on the other side easy to support in case it ever gets necessary, e.g. by dividing the drilling job in two separate tasks. If the order is left e.g. to the somewhat arbitrary order th...

Re: Helix machining for circular holes

[edit: pull request URLs] I created a pull request for the tool controller fix , and I took a stab at job sorting this morning. I would say this is an improvement over the image I posted previously: Screenshot from 2017-04-29 11-03-49.png Screenshot from 2017-04-29 11-46-35.png I think this method (...

Re: I want rustlers, cut throats, murderers, and methodists

One without b-splines, just good ole straight lines: on the tiles object, face profile will only create a path for a single face (it is also a torture test for the constraint solver, don't try opening the sketch and adding / moving stuff around if you don't want to stare at an unresponsive screen fo...

mkay, works: https://github.com/m0n5t3r/FreeCAD/commit/59a32ceb4e5d83cf51f82ac2421921c9b8d0afa7 I'll submit a pull request after https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/pull/699 gets merged Another annoyance would be the base object falling out of the job when I delete the dressup, but that can be worked...
