Re: Limiting path on 3D operations

Using Windows 10 on this machine with Freecad 0.19 portable. Tried a surface ToolPath using stock created from a box, moved where the box was and size. Set the origin to one of the corners. This is not a solution but the boundary box works exactly as it should . (see image) I created lots of boundar...

Macro to find similar labeled parts and delete them all

I deal with large Die Assemblies on a daily basis. Some of the files are rather big and take time to load. I don't need all the stuff in the die assembly so I delete what I don't want and save the file so the next time I load it, the file loads faster. Deleting every 1/2-13 bolt or dowel one by one ...

Re: Table with T-Nut Slot Generator

I am really really sorry I did not add this and probably should have just made it one big file but here is the Qtform that this macro imports... I wrote this originally when it was still version 15 and have sat on this code for a few years now. Hope this helps

Re: Table with T-Nut Slot Generator

Thanks for that chunk of code Mario it is now part of my collection. I actually had to fix this macro before I uploaded it since I wrote it back before Body was part of Freecad. This code is for anyone and everyone so if you want to make it your own that is fine with me.

Table with T-Nut Slot Generator

This macro opens a dialog for you to put in your values then creates a table with the T slots in it. Only 6 T-Slots can be generated. I did this out of boredom and to practice scripting in FreeCAD. I am a huge python fan so it was a fun little project. Make sure you edit the script to point to the k...

Re: Path Workben plus step file reverse engineering tutorial

Here is the .step file I was playing with. That center punch hole is something I would not machine out. I would drill all the holes and one in the center heat treat the block and then wire out that center punch hole in the EDM.

Path Workben plus step file reverse engineering tutorial

Machining a part is not always cut and dry. What steps you are going to take in making a part should also be considered if you are designing the part. Depending on the software you use there is nothing wrong with having several different features 2D or 3D for machining purposes only. You don't have ...

Re: Pattern Types

I am not sure if this helps but it appears you are wanting to do a pocket path inside your square. Tool paths can be tricky in a lot of cam software and there are tricks of the trade to get the desired outcome you want. Without knowing what it is you are trying to do it is hard to say what tool path...
