Re: Units for feedrate

Re: Pocket through all?

Can you provide a use-case for this kind of pocket? It seems like profiling all the way through around the perimeter of a pocket would have the same effect since the remaining material would 'fall out'.

Re: FreeCAD UI Overhaul anyone?

I agree with a lot of what the OP lists. I now use Pro/E/Creo at work and sometimes use Fusion 360 at home (for assemblies) and see a lot of value in other ways of doing things. The 3D navigation cube is also used in Fusion 360 and is super useful. That would be a nice addition. The great thing abou...

Re: Helix machining for circular holes

Here's a retouched version of the new icon in 16,24,32 and 64px on light, gray and dark backgrounds, original on left, proposal on right. Any feedback or ideas before I submit a pull request? spritesheet.png Could you put a flat bottom on that tool so that it's an end mill- not a drill? Drills can'...

Re: Strange users in the forum

FYI, I've been banning about 3 users a day as of late. The names seem to be computer generated and their posts are full of nonsense with links to sites selling viagra and other things interspersed. I see that others are banning about the same amount per day.

Have you not noticed that "ThomasTedsmall" has posted two utterly nonsense replies to two different topics and therefore must be some kind of spammer?

And I'm pretty sure I reported the afore mentioned reply already. :roll:
Ok. "ThomasTedsmall" is banned.
