Offsetting edges does that. It's normal. If you offset a polyline in another CAD program, you will probably notice the same thing.

Re: How to get a path for a pocket?

For the time being, you will have to enter the final depth by hand in the pocket properties. We will fix most of pocketing sometime and make it so that there are some assumptions made based on selection. Sorry that we aren't there yet.

I have become very fond of the FreeCAD forum. But sometimes when reading a excellent question and/or a fantastic answer here on the forum, I feel quite sad.

Re: Suggestions for Path Module

Being able to use an 'F' feed command on a line by itself would be a good thing, in addition to the way it's used now, with other feed movement commands.

This is a great place for discussing this. Let's keep the discussion going. I would be happy to add your post to the workbench. You could copy/paste it here in the forum or place it on a place like pastebin.com and I can grab it from there too. If you feel comfortable using github, that's great too....

Re: libarea, used in Path Workbench

Yorik just merged in the version of libarea that I included in Path workbench. So, now there is no need to pull libarea from outside sources. Thanks Yorik!

Re: Export for CNC Milling - Newbie 1 oh 1

You're going to have to give us a bit more info on how you are actually generating the G-code that Mach is using. I've been working on a CAM workbench called Path for FreeCAD and we aren't very far yet. We certainly don't have any 4th axis CAM modules for it yet. Describe your process of getting cod...
