The engrave op can also use a sketch or individual edges from a model or a sketch.
Because PD hides its sketches a sketch needs to be at the root to be eligible as a base object (free sketches, PD sketches can't be used). Once it's a base object you can select one edge of the sketch and then use the loop completion tool to select the rest and add them to the Base Geometry list. If the sketch has holes - rinse and repeat.chrisb wrote: ↑Fri Aug 16, 2019 6:44 amI tried for quite a while with sketches, clones of sketches and more, but nothing showed up in the BaseFeature list. Finally I hit the Ok button of the engrave operation anyway and - surprise - the path was created .
I was successful wit a sketch on top level of the tree using this as 2D geometry in the job. Did I do something wrong or is the BaseFeature list currently unused?

I enabled the experimental feature as suggested, and it creates a feature area outside the job. It seems to just contain a reference to the sketch made from the imported image plane. I cannot get a usable tool path generated from it. How do I generate a tool path? And what is a feature area anyway if it can't be used to generate a tool path?
Sorry about noob questions, but I'm quite new to this.
