Re: Profile Operation-What does import button do?

... is there any other way to add to the operation's base geometry from python? Again, thanks, Frank Evening. Sure. Use the `FreeCADGui` module in scripts, or reference the `Gui` module in the python console. The example below is used directly in the python console, so `Gui` and `App` are already a...

Re: Profile Operation-What does import button do?

Evening.
The 'Import' button located in the 'Base Geometry' task panel tab will import the base geometry from the operation displayed in the drop-down combobox to its immediate left.

Re: Profile ... with a finishing pass

Afternoon. Here is my take on your question. I simply created a demo file based on your image. See attached. I used adjustments to the offsets and heights/depths to make the included paths. I also used the `Copy From` feature of the Tag Dressup to place finish tags in same/close location to roughing...

Re: Creating a toolpath to machine a series of round pegs to the same height

Evening. I downloaded your SCAD file above and imported it into FreeCAD. I am not sure about what your goal is. Is it something similar to the attached screenshot - face each of the pegs?

Re: [Tracking] Backport commits to 0.20 branch

Afternoon.
May I suggest PR #7137 Path: Fix Type=Polar regression in PathArray for the Path workbench. As of this post, it has not completed CI or review by project managers. The PR fixes a regression introduced in 0.20 - I am at fault.

Thanks,
Russell

Re: bug of array of polar

Afternoon. Welcome to the forum! Looks like this is a regression from when I refactored the module a while back, in PR #4818 edc358a4a1b2a5b9102dcf23d5f802c613c2f2d4 . Fix is active in the PR cue, #7137 Path: Fix Type=Polar regression in PathArray . I will also suggest this PR for backport to 0.20.x...

Re: NumPy import error causes Path to fail

Evening, I also build on Windows from source. I had a few issues a week or two back, around the time of the 0.20 official release, and then a few months before that. Most recent fix for my build failure was finding the most recent LibPack, version 2.6 at https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD-LibPack/ta...

Re: in what file can I set the rules of formation of text g-code, which I see on the button Path inspect

Afternoon, The Path Inspect tool might not make use of Post Processor modules since it more or less presents the raw internal gcode of an operation. I am not 100% confident of this, but I think the inspect tool is independent of post processor modules. I will have to look at the code base to be sure...
