Bug or user error?

Dear community, I am making my first tries in the path workbench and running into problems, but not sure if it is me or something else that needs fixing. ;) There is one milling and one drilling operation in the picture below. If we first look at the milling operation, it looks as if the mill will g...

Re: Delete or hide paths

I'll seccond this motion!

Re: Cheap online brass sheet metal etching service

I am in the same situation. It looks like do-it-yourselfers are moving away from photoetching, probably because of disposal and procurement issues with the chemicals.
