Summary0002660: Improving path surfacing object feature
DescriptionThis feature is partially implemented. There are useful parameters which are still not implemented, i.e. operation limits or material allowance (XY) and path angle among others.
Due the fact HeeksCNC also uses OpenCamLib it should be easy to use the attached Python script to include these parameters in the Path Surfacing Object feature.
TagsNo tags attached.

The toolpaths in the HeeksCNC picture should be possible with FreeCAD if using the same parameters. I attached a picture with the HeeksCNC parameters, this allows to realize how these parameters are traduced to the script.

@luispa the bugtracker recently was broken and it seems that last backup didn't transfer your attachments which is a shame. Sorry for the inconvenience biput would you be able to re-upload said attachments?

I've attached the files again. Is there any advance on this feature?
Thank you very much.

@mlampert do you mind weighing in?

There has been no progress on the 3d surfacing front and I doubt that's gonna change any time soon - not in 0.17.

OK. Is there any chance to use 3D pocket instead?

Major improvements have been made to 3D Surface lately. Unfortunately, not all the parameters desired or mentioned here are available yet in the current version. The current version does, however, have other features not available in HeeksCNC.

It is my goal to continue improvement on the 3D Surface op. Goals include limiting scans to selected surfaces, improving the current Waste feature, adding additional cut patterns, and maybe more. Not sure I can "fit the kitchen sink," but I just might 'surface' it. @sliptonic.

If I think of it, I'll glance at the included script with this bug report and look into the features it contains and how they might be implemented in the FC version of the tool.
