Update operation base geometry?

Hi,

Is there a way to update the base geometry for an operation after it's been "closed"? It would be convenient to add faces or edges, for example, rather than to create many operations or delete and rebuild them. I haven't seen any way to do this.

Thanks in advance,
Frank

Re: Help with pocket operation requested

I tried that with little success, but I'll give it another shot. Probably a wrong setting somewhere.

I can get the path with a smaller endmill, but I'd prefer to do something faster.

Thanks,
Frank

Re: Machine speed gcode not generated correctly

Thanks for the tip :) I thought I had tried that, but obviously I didn't :( One reason I split by operation was so that I could try individual pieces, and correct errors without redoing the entire job. The simulation isn't quite enough for those of us who aren't highly experienced... I am pretty new...

Re: Machine speed gcode not generated correctly

Since I was having trouble with the engrave operation (I'll explain that shortly) I decided to use the profile edges operation, and select the edges of each letter manually. I selected the interior of each letter and created a pocket so I had selectable edges. Now that I had edges, that was resultin...

Re: Machine speed gcode not generated correctly

I see. I'd get the desired result if I created a job and the first operation, a 2nd job and operation, and a 3rd job and operation. I just did a quick experiment, and just copying the job doesn't seem to do what I want, but creating new jobs/operations isn't a huge deal for now. After all the jobs, ...
