If you say that something is simple it sounds like an accusation.
No, it's not an accusation. The point of that comment was that it is not some obscure operation but something basic which is missing. Since the solid basis which is already in place is all voluntary work there is no "accusation" in anything being missing, it is pointing out that this may be something worth fixing when possible since it seems fundamental.
If I did not have to spend so much time just getting FC to build and run, my intention was to try to improve some of these areas. Breaking py2 wasted a lot of the free time I had available and involved me in a major distro upgrade which also took me down a rabbit hole of bug reports and wasted time. I even installed a Ubuntu based distro thinking this may make life easier here: yet more time wasting and bug reports on the distro where everyone just ends up saying " pull requests are welcome" instead of fixing anything.
How about Profile?
Code: Select all
Profiling Select Mode
<Path.Area> Area.cpp(1287): project failed
<Path.Area> Area.cpp(1429): empty projection
PathProfileFaces.ERROR: Unable to create path for face(s).
This is same issue I raised previously and it was agreed that there was no path tool which would do it. ( I previously just cited a planar vertical face but the curved face produces the same issue ).
It seems that if the face has zero area when projected on the normal plane of the spindle axis, it gets rejected. So any plane or curved surface perpendicular to the tool fails.
The aim of this thread was to start a discussion on how that could be fixed. Or for someone with knowledge to say that it could be done, did not need to be done , or whatever.
If we can agree on whether FC is unable to cut a vertical face and whether this is desirable or a stupid idea, we would be one step forward.
