Re: A little problem with a cone

Python version: 2.7.15rc1 Hey @quick61 welcome back. (I arrived in to the community after you left). Quick question, is there a specific reason you're opting to use py2 instead of py3 ? "opting"? No, just the Daily PPA installed on my system. Do I have a choice? Like I said, it's been a while and I...

A little problem with a cone

Getting back into FreeCAD and checking things out I did a simple model with a cone shape to test the Path 3D pocket, along with the Adaptive Clearing and Profiling. Adaptive sees only the major diameter and seems to ignore the face of the cone. OK, from lurking and reading the last few days, not une...

Re: It's Been A While

And thanks once again.

sliptonic - I'll make a post in the Path section with a simple model and the problem I am seeing.

Jim - sounds like you have it going on, and no, nothing tragic or otherwise happened to me.

Make a difference.
No, it does not, at least not for me. Ether way, in or out.

Export to Autodesk DXF or Drawing DXF? I want to bisect the problem.
That would be Autodesk DXF, as you can not export the Draft > Shape 2D in Drawing DXF. At least not on my install.

Re: FreeCAD 0.16 > 0.17 regression / drawing & dxf export

Thanks for reporting the problem. Is there a chance that you could test the same drawing on a 0.18 pre version? There is a chance that the problem was fixed since 0.17 was released. I just tried with - OS: Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS Word size of OS: 64-bit Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit Version: 0.18.16093 (...

It's Been A While

Hi all, been back lurking for a few days and after a long time away, (coons age), I'm starting to fall back into FreeCAD. I must say, I am about dumbfounded by the amount of work that has gone into Path, GREAT JOB to all of you on that, (though it still freaks out on cones, must be a tough nut to cr...

Re: Helix machining for circular holes

I did get this working and it produces very nice paths! I sent you a pm about specific implementation issues. When clearing a circular hole, it does a helical descent, then rapids out, moves over the step width and repeats with progressively larger helices. I'm curious if users would also like to s...

Re: Doesn't appear the robotic workbench in my freeCAD v.014

please somebody know how the activate or install the robotic workbench.. Thank you. The easiest way to make sure everything is working as it should would be to get the latest release version of FreeCAD. You can find it from here - Download FreeCAD 0.14 is several 3 years out of date! :shock: Mark
