Re: Path Section of the Wiki - A call to arms.

Would it be useful if I did something about the tooling?

Re: [DEV] Tool Editor GUI

The current FC tool dialog has all of the functioning parameters for Path and then some. A simple static sketch for each type of tool would be convenient for identifying those parameters in cases where it might not be obvious. A simple drawing of the tools would work. Another option would be to dra...

Re: [DEV] Tool Editor GUI

Nor do I think it's a good strategy to copy another CAD program's Not really wanting to copy as such more get a feel for the direction. Please have a look at this thread and ask yourself if you really want to make the acquaintance of some corporate IP lawyers: I have removed the screenshot.

Re: Operation Suggestion

That's an interesting challenge. I don't think it's a new operation but is certainly a needed improvement to an existing one. Perhaps Mill-Face should avoid regions 'higher' then the selected face but ignore holes. If you don't mind, I'll add the model to my Path-Torture collection for future impro...

Re: Default Path Preference for Post Processing

I have noticed over time, as path has evolved, the default selected Post Processor has flip-flopped around between linuxcnc, grbl, and one other I cant remember. Does anyone besides me think Post.py should be settable in the following menu selection. FreeCAD:Preferences:Path:Job Preferences:General...

Tool Editor / Tool Table

I would like to start helping out with the Path workbench and I recall that Brad said in one of his videos that the tool representation in FreeCAD would be a good place for someone to contrubute. I believe that a good starting point for this would be to update the toolEdit ui with a more graphical r...
