CAM simulation for the Path Workbench

Postby shaise » Tue Oct 31, 2017 2:57 pm

Hi Everyone,

This is an announcement for a new feature in the Path workbench: CAM simulation.
A new toolbar button added, when pressed, A task window will appear letting you select a job, and tool paths, and then a cut simulation will be performed on the defined Stock object.
Right now it supports only standard 3 axis mill and 3 tools: flat, chamfer and round endmills.
Please let me know about any bugs found.
Thanks to everyone who helped me with this task.
