Re: GCode Error generated in Pocket_3D operation.

I made a simple example as you'd mentioned Chrisb. I made sure to Recompute-All at each step, and to look at the Dependency-Graph at each step. Weirdly, the D-G can't draw if I add a tool in to the Job--no idea on that. If I add the Profile-Faces Operation, the D-G can draw again. Recompute-All show...

Re: GCode Error generated in Pocket_3D operation.

I was trying to do what you are describing--not what you thought I meant--but the first operation I define has the Final-Depth locked. I can set the Start Depth, and the Finish-Depth, but the Final-Depth is taken from my model and I can't override it...

Re: GCode Error generated in Pocket_3D operation.

I'll try. I was super careful walking that model though, ensuring zero errors with Recompute All step by step. Path is generally much more workable with this model, but the Dependency Graph can't generate an image under the cases I mentioned--Path-WB is generating correct outputs... Now that I'm abl...

Re: Tool Manager Suggestion(s)

I think I misstated that Chrisb. Agree it's good to have it push tools down generally. I had an instance where I had a gap near the top, and 10+ tools below the gap. As I moved Tools up, all Tools below the gap were pushed further down... I also made the mistake of using " in my Tool name to disting...

Re: Pocket with 30mm tool fails, yet 29.999999999mm tool works?

I think you're right Russ. I'm no expert, but have read that FC generally does better when we are able to avoid doing things like a Boolean cut between objects with Faces on an identical plane where the option to offset them slightly is harmless. I see the same thing here with Tool-Diameter must be ...

Re: GCode Error generated in Pocket_3D operation.

I then added Operations to the Job, and at some point, the Dependency-Graph can't even complete. I think I read here about the Dependency Graph having problems in some cases. I will have a look at your model tomorrow. Hi Chrisb, I am reworking this job and have a CLEAN model. I have found where I c...

Tool Manager Suggestion(s)

Hi, I just spent some time organizing my Tools using the Tool-Manager, and it highlighted a few areas I believe would have improved utility with a few changes: Specifically, I noticed that the Current implementation provides buttons for Move-Up, and Move-Down. To use these, the Tool must be selected...

Re: CAM simulation for the Path Workbench

Hi Shai, About 5 seconds--didn't catch on to that. Beautifully done. So, now I get it, I can look at final output in 5 Seconds or so, but playback if I need to see where something bad happened. That's so cool! Thanks, Josh OS: Windows 10 Word size of OS: 64-bit Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit Version: ...

Re: GCode Error generated in Pocket_3D operation.

Hi Chris, Thanks. I'm confused a bit though. I opened the model I used--as saved before Path-WB Job was added--and marked for ReCompute, and performed, and I see no error messages on any of the objects in the body of the model. The Dependency-Graph shows as fine as well. After dinking around with it...
