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...

The attachment was a very simple part to give a sense of how my part is organized. The eventual goal is not trying to make a counterbore, but a completely separate fea...

Please help me try to understand how this should be done or if a request for enhancement is in order... What I'm trying to do is this: - Make a solid - Make a complicated pocket on one face. - Make a multi-transform of complicated pocket. - Make a "copy" of the complicated pocket with small modifica...
