Re: confused drilling path

OK, I'll only say it was your fault if it goes badly wrong and I need someone else to blame ;)

Re: confused drilling path

Thanks Gene. So it's a case of broke by design :( I recall a discussion about a year about safe ht vs clearance ht, which seems to have the same root problem of not doing things the right for some distorted logic. I think it fizzled out and it just got dropped. Could you post you post processor or P...

Re: trouble with 3D surface

Many thanks. I found that I did not have sufficient step resolution which gave sloping edges to the step. Cut pattern angle was indeed what I was missing. I must have been confusing with something else which selected X or Y cutting direction. Anyway I got was I want and it was a nice finish. :) HT t...

trouble with 3D surface

Hi, It's been a while since I used 3D but I don't seem to be able to do what I've done previously with this path tool. I have a concave surface next to a step. Several problems: 1. I can't get it to cut along Y, IIRC there used to be an option of which axis to cut , X or Y. 2. I can't get it to incl...

confused drilling path

Hi, I just pulled a fresh copy of master a couple of days back and knocked up a simple plate with four holes in it. I added a drill path which did not select "peck" option. When I look at the output I'm getting an air cut G80 down to stock; G0 to safe-height, then a G81cutting the same hol...

Re: No ramp dressup on pocket path [FIXED]

I realised that I had selected the Pocket and rather than the Pocket_Shape (ie path ) before trying to apply the ramp dressup. What confused me was that all the other items in the Path Dressup menu were active and only leadin and ramp were greyed out. This made it look like I was in a valid context ...

Thanks Gene, nothing was failing, the lead in and ramp dressups were greyed out on the menu.

No ramp dressup on pocket path [FIXED]

Hi, I have a simple pocket path but leadin and ramp dressups are greyed out. Is that expected , if so why? I don't see any obvious conflict. Why is this not possible ? Thanks OS: Fedora 34 (Thirty Four) (LXQt//usr/share/xsessions/lxqt) Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit Version: 0.20.24847 (Git) Build typ...
