Re: PathShape question

I want to be able to engrave arbitrary shapes - such as borders - along with text. The gcode in the pathshape is not really usable (by including it within the engrave skeleton code) without massive editing. For example it simply generates the code for a single pass at height 0. I normally use multip...

This combines an imported image and a couple of stringshapes that have been converted to sketches, and then the sketches were combined. I then used the 'fro...

Re: Simple engraving question

Yes, I was. And I found a way to do it using the fromshape operation properly (use the linked sketch when setting up the job). I just tried a first version of this on my tiny router and it worked (file is attached). I think I just need to do several more projects to get the workflow solid. I thank y...

Attached is the file and the error log that resulted from trying to execute the engrave operation. I am sadly coming to the conclusion that FreeCAD...

Re: Simple engraving question

Hi, I enabled the experimental feature as suggested, and it creates a feature area outside the job. It seems to just contain a reference to the sketch made from the imported image plane. I cannot get a usable tool path generated from it. How do I generate a tool path? And what is a feature area anyw...
