Path WB on 0.19 17877, Window 7: Path Pocket goes to Depth Warning error

Postby liutas4x4 » Wed Aug 28, 2019 6:40 pm

Hi,

In each and every try to do describe Pocket Shape operation, with different Bodies/Models, boring pop-up windows appear:

No matter what you do, no matter where, it will pop-up on each change of something.
Cursor goes to a "waiting circle", not allowing to do next op.
Only way to escape is to press Alt+F4.

Cheers,
Eugenijus.

I'm responsible for the pop-up warning. Was intended for specific use cases where bottom of pocket may not be easily determined because of a group of vertical faces being used to define the pocket - in which the bottom of the pocket may not be flat or easily extracted for depth. In such a case the user should verify the depth set for the pocket.

I'll take a look and disable the pop-up. I think converting to a warning message in Report View will suffice. The analysis of the special use case to trigger the pop-up probably needs some improvement.

Cursor will continually spin until the 'OK' button is clicked. The Pocket_Shape script is suspended until the 'OK' button is clicked - the reason for the spinning cursor (waiting for user input).

Thanks for the feedback.
My apologies for the frustration, Sir.

It is OK to verify. But after it is verified, it becomes to be unnecessary.

And something more about it: sometimes pocket will become a hole after reversing a stock and facing other side.
In this case depth of a pocket is always bigger than a faces used.

So, sometimes it will be nice to obtain pocket's path not from faces, but from edges on upper face.
For now it is prohibited option.

Nope. Spinning cursor is not allowing to click the button. Only Alt+F4 helps.
Is it modal?

No need for apologies, Russell. It part of job, you see.

Sincerely,
Eugenijus.

No, Sir. As of this response the PR is still awaiting review and subsequent merge into the master branch. After merging, it could be another few days more for the daily binaries are updated. Devs and managers at that level have their screens layered in apps and processors at full capacity, apart from scheduling challenges with day jobs.

Open source daily builds will challenge our patience with regularity and certainty.

Thanks for the feedback and involvement in the forum.
