Re: Freecad 0.18 Mac OS daily release

I guess only @peterl94 is able to do this currently. If someone can create the .dmg and post it anywhere I can upload it to the repo. The problem is only Peter has developed the secret sauce to create the .dmg from the miniconda build. I just came across this site: https://wiki.octave.org/Create_a_...

Re: Py3 Mac app for testing

Nice to see you guys working on new builds for mac :)

I'm afraid the freezes on macos 10.14.x are still here when launched from finder. It is not a big issue as there are workarounds, I just wanted to leave the feedback.

Re: Poor man's (single width) slotting

@mlampert: How did you get your sketch to show up as 2d feature when creating a new path job? It works fine on your sample file here, but on my own files it only shows solids to select.

Re: Creating Lasercutting Paths

After the first few days working with paths, I am running into the same issue as I do with part design: the name of the edges that I select for engraving change, even when I am not deleting the 'source'-lines when working in sketcher. So it breaks the paths, just like references to ext. geometry in ...

Re: Creating Lasercutting Paths

It works pretty straight forward already using engrave and a few workarounds. A "laser/plasma" option in the tool type dropdown with other options (xy movements only, optional z axis for focal length/rotary axis) could make sense. That said, those Z movements and some other gcode are ignored by K40w...

Re: Creating Lasercutting Paths

Yes, that example also uses engrave. Just with a seperate sketch for the lines. In my case it is probably easier to create slots/holes in the part with the edge I want to cut in mind. I'll have to get comfortable with the path module and see. Thanks for the link!

Creating Lasercutting Paths

I am trying to create paths for a K40 lasercutter. K40 whipserer is a nice open source tool that allows these cheap machines to run from gcode. I am running into a few issues though.. maybe someone here can help? My parts have 'folding lines' and cutlines and I can't find a way to get them cut in a ...

Re: Freecad 0.18 Mac OS daily release

The important thing is to have the channels in the right order. The higher-priority channel must be listed first. Sorry for giving wrong instructions previously. Another way is to activate the freecad env and update freecad: initConda # assuming you activate the base-env with initConda source activ...

Re: Freecad 0.18 Mac OS daily release

@looo Using the condo build, I can get into the path workbench. But I can't create a new path job object, this is the output: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/Users/turbo/miniconda3/envs/freecad/Mod/Path/PathScripts/PathJobCmd.py", line 119, in Activated self.Execute(dialog.getModel(), dial...
