for base Roll on roll of there is already a leadinand out dressup
that uses the Base operation
this coudt also be aproved by adding a flexible on the line INOut Tag
Prefer if we would have the lead in/out discussion on a different topic
And have the "roll radius part" in there as well?
In the old HeeksCNC profile operation, you could manually choose a start and/or end point and configure a roll radius
The weakness of the Heeks implementation was that it didn't handle profiles with multiple disconnected wires where the user needs to configure multiple start points.
can you give some more info on that? Do you mean rapid moves between engagement points in a connected toolpath or is there a toolpath that will produce disconnected wires?
How did it handle the start and stop points? as one point with overlaps (negative tag width) or 2 separate points for stop and start?
So meanwhile i've been playing with the Tag dressup some more,
It does split wires in n sections ( if anyone is interested in a path for turret punching add the tangent angle to G-code as tool index)
It lets you select 2 or more points from a gui.
If nobody is splitting atoms we could do a smallest unit 0,0001 (is there a var for this????) Tag up to save height and use it for the new start/end point calculation.
Then decide what we do with the part from old till new startpoint > discard or append to end.
For startpoint only, disable the second tag, for start and stop use both.
