Re: Can't edit TagDressup

It looks like there may still be some lingering issues. I can't get the auto Generate to work. When I press the "Replace All" button I get two different results on two designs. One: nothing. Other: apparently nothing, but if OK and re-enter the dialog, I get the auto-generated tags. I have a design ...

Re: PathShape is not member of Job Operations (bug?)

More details about GRBL limitations:
https://github.com/gnea/grbl/wiki#limitations-by-design

I use bCNC to feed GRBL. I see some evidence that bCNC supposedly translates G8x codes, but it doesn't seem to work for me. I'll try again with the latest and pose the question to bCNC developer.

I use Drilling ops with the standard grbl post processor all the time - what's the problem you run into?
The GRBL post processor lets drill cycles (Last was G83) go through. GRBL doesn't understand drill cycles.

Re: PathShape is not member of Job Operations (bug?)

I came across this because I was looking for a way to make a finishing pass for a helix drill. I hit the same dead-end as @Gauthier. I'll attach a simplified part/path showing the type of finish pass I had envisioned. Since it appears PathShape is not a usable thing, is there a better way to make su...

Re: Diffing through .fcstd files

Hi, Thanks. I noticed FCstd info script, but I didn't feel it had enough detail. I'm not interested in merging based on the text files alone; that sounds very ambitious. I'm interested in being able to get a second view of changes. I also undertand in many cases a typical "diff" will generate too mu...

Re: Diffing through .fcstd files

I came across this thread after setting up git diff textconv etc. First thing I tested is Open a file, save it unchanged, do the "git diff". In this case, there are too many changes to be useful. I'm guessing this is because the FreeCAD internals don't care about order of things in the FCStd files. ...

What do you use for a g-code loader?
I use bCNC too (on macOS 0.9.9 March 24, 2017).
I haven't looked into enough bCNC settings; may be it has filter/translate capabilities.

Re: Conversion to Path.Area

@roival, I found the same issue (luckily) in simulation -- big cut slashing through the part. G0 Z<safe> is missing. In my case, I followed it back: It isn't generated in the contour operation, so it's missing from my holding tags dress-up, so it's missing from the post-processed output. Note: the f...

Re: Is there a GRBL/arduino shield post-processor?

I was just looking for that... I've been using linuxcnc post processor too. I had my first issue, though: canned drill cycles (G81) aren't supported by GRBL, but they're generated by the drill operation. Watch out; it errored out in the middle of my in-air practice cut. It was easy enough to transla...

Re: Trying to move a mapped sketch or resulting pocket

Thanks for your help. When I get a chance, I'll open up an Ubuntu VM and see the nightlies. I ended up having to make a construction line "handle" to move my sketch around. I'll document in case it helps anyone else. The end result is: RootPointHandle.png "handle" is blue (construction line) The "of...
