In Path WB, cannot change Flat Radius and Corner Radius param

Postby bzb.dev001 » Tue Jun 18, 2019 2:29 pm

In Path Workbench under Tool Manager. Cannot create a tool (eg. Ball end mill)
Changing the values of "Flat radius" and "Corner radius" is not accepted.

Please be much(!) more specific describing what you did.

Besides that, the path operations can not yet handle these mill shapes.

Agree with chris here on the request for a little more information. But disagree on tool handling in PathWB, when using OCL specifically and 3D Surface, it seems that Russ has already implemented the use of rounded tools. So there is one corner of PathWB that i know of where this is useful.

You are right, OCL can handle different tool shapes! Will have to get it working on the Mac, because 0.19 daily is utterly outdated for Ubuntu 16.04 which I use.
