Re: GCode Importing To a ToolPath

I will give out my python code all day long but I do not want to ever compile another piece of software ever in my life. I don't even know where i would begin. Honestly though I don't feel I am up to the task of helping contribute to the code under the hood of FreeCad. I wish I could personally than...

Re: GCode Importing To a ToolPath

It is very much the same but it is still different. The biggest difference is I can't control the one and the other one is code. Plus when you use FreeCads import from the file menu you get to choose a processor and the example_pre is the only one that seems to generate anything visible on my screen...

Re: PathWorkbench FeatureArea tool and Reversing a Step file to create tool paths

- FeatureArea is based on sketches or wires I believe it is based on the an Area and the objects in the Area can be faces, points edges and all kinds of fun stuff. I can not really answer this because I don't know but the way I see it it is based on a given Area. - it works basically without a job. ...

Re: PathWorkbench FeatureArea tool and Reversing a Step file to create tool paths

I can't speak for what is under the hood of Path Area or how it creates the objects it creates. I understand what it wants from me to achieve what I want from it.

Would this be rude from our community members???

I was wondering if it would be rude to include my bitcoin address in my post for anyone wanting to show me that my work is valued? The address would only be used for my FreeCad work so I know that it was the community that gave it to me.
