I just retested some of the mentioned points with the following version:
OS: Windows 10
Word size of OS: 64-bit
Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit
Version: 0.17.13086 (Git)
Build type: Release
Python version: 2.7.8
Qt version: 4.8.7
Coin version: 4.0.0a
OCC version: 7.1.0
Locale: German/Germany (de_DE)
- Paths are now shown when I click "Apply" in the Operation dialog --> Awesome!
- Operations with the "default" tool result in visible Paths --> fixed!
I tried to use the simulation-feature but at least on my setup it results in a brown blob:
When I hit "play", I see the tool moving but the stock isn't updated. I kind of remember this feature working properly in the past, can't say for sure and on which platform (ubuntu/windows).
Pocketing still working great (similar part as before):
The Facemilling bug still persists:
Still persists on a simple block aswell:
I want to add a remark on the "default" values or derived values (especially for step-down) like here:
Setting it to the tool-diameter is really restrictive and should be made editable (or am I just missing some option to edit this??) as soon as possible. If you want to set it to a "default" value I would suggest tool-diameter/2 or tool-diameter/3 which are imho good values for wood and aluminium (just my personal experience, I am not a professional machinist).
Have a nice one!
