Re: How to leave small gaps in cutting paths?

I don't think I'll be able to help as I can't code. The tag feature doesn't work for laser/plasma/.. other cutting tools as well. It would require a G0 movement instead of Z changes. I will try to edit these by hand, too :/

I'll have a look at the code though, once I have spare time :)

Re: How to leave small gaps in cutting paths?

Hey Mark,

thanks, that seems to be what I was looking for. I'll give it a try :)

Also, is there a way to remove the third axis in gcode? I am removing gcode manually in a text editor for now.

How to leave small gaps in cutting paths?

I'd like to prevent cut out parts from blocking the plotter. Is there a way to add small gaps in the (laser) contour cuts?

Re: 0.17 & Mac Mojave total crash

I have just tried it: FreeCAD still freezes MacOS, but only for a few seconds. :) It used to freeze the system for about a minute. Also, when I open a file I will get a "beachball" cursor. It is not as bad as a system freeze, but it shouldn't happen (it's the OS feedback of an unresponsive app. Afte...

Array in PathWB

I'd like to engrave and cut multiple objects, one after the other. So far I could not get this to work, as the array feature in pathWB only works on single operations. Is there a way to group operations and apply the array to the group? Also, is there a way to automatically rotates/place as many ins...

Re: Mac dev Py3 / QT5 version - does not start

@looo Thanks for your work on mac OS releases! Your version from the dropbox link starts, but it still has the same freezing issues as the older .dmg builds on macOS 10.14.x.

Re: Latest build breaks menus on OSX

Have you tried to make another application active and then returning to freecad? This was working for me for the last months.

Re: FreeCAD on macOS Mojave

If that's possible, they probably should be code signed. I wouldn't be surprised if Apple soon won't allow any unsigned apps at all. I believe the default setting on Mojave is already even stricter: App Store only.

I have tried to disable "gatekeeper", but it does not fix the freezes.
