4th Axis path

Postby aaron » Mon Dec 02, 2019 1:46 pm

I would like to use freecad to generate a 4th axis tool path to machine the attached barley twist in wood. First of all can it be done?
And second, where are the files I need to work in freecad, and is there a simple explanation for installing them?
I have a CNC machine running LinuxCNC and am running freecad 0.18 on ubuntu 16.04.
Freecad I brilliant by the way
