1  Resources / Scripts and Plugins / Re: Dimensioned Objects (polyline, circle, rectangle) plugin on: January 16, 2019, 22:22:36 pm
Hello Eddy

I get a translation problem with this plugin.

Each time a new value is entered ; it is added to the translation list. (pic 1)

Also the translation is applied for the first "enter width" but not for the second text that ask for the size. (pic2)

same for both width and height

Hello,

David,

Since I don't have Adobe Flashplayer installed your screencasts will not play, is there a setting at your end to overcome this ?

No, I think flash player is needed for this video format (and I'm not able to change it)

Hello

If the behavior is the same that on mine, when you click on the points in the drawing area, the ID is not immediately visible in the nesting property and we must click again on the part name to refresh and for the ID to appears.

If I select the point list in the tree, I never get the ID it in the nesting property, as you.

Same problem on both 0.98 and 1.0

How do I get grid lines to be output on printouts like they are with Loyd's printing plugin?

The print function do not print the grid lines.

I like to capture the sub windows on the left side in my printouts.

Only the drawing area can be printed as for other CAD software.

This is what I achieved before generating the toolpaths.

Hello

I tried to open your DXF, but I get nothing in CamBam nor in Solidworks ...

Hello

Something that I wonder about multiple thread usage is: can we use a same set of data for 2 different threads ?

Ex: let's say we want to calculate "toolpaths" based on a 3D shape ; we can use multiple thread to do calculation on different areas of the shape at the same time (to speed up things), but in this case the 3D shape is shared for all thread ; it's is possible ? or each thread must have it's own data set ? ...

P.S. Zero crossover should not be used IMHO.

I always set it to 0 for engraving to avoid "bridges" between shape that are very close each from other (like text).

Hello

That said to CamBam to machine the whole depth in only one pass at the target depth ; useful for finishing.

Hello,

No, I have created this engraving from a JPEG, which was saved as a DXF file. So its just an outline of the profile.

Yes but even an outline can contain a huge number of small segments ... and they use a lot of memory and give enormous GCode. It is worth if the file contain splines ; it's a good idea to convert splines to polylines before to use them with a machining operation.

when you get a DXF, especially if it a "digitized" image, it's a good idea to check if your polylines are not to "heavy" (contain a lot of small segments) ; the "magic" function is the polyline/arc fit that is able to give lighter polylines. (first convert splines to polylines if nedeed)

have a look at the reply #9 of this post
http://www.cambam.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=1624.0

It will be more easy to check the problem if you share our .cb file that cause this error (additional options.. link)

If it is larger that 6MB, pack it. (rar, zip)

Has a patch been done for the 32-bit system, as I only found one patch for the 64-bit system.

No

I have a sealed package of Windows 10 Home Edition 64-bit Version 1803, but I have not yet searched to see if CamBam and Mach3 will work on this Windows Platform?

For CamBam, Yes

For Mach3, yes IF you drive the machine trough USB or Ethernet, but if you're using the // port you can only use a 32 bits version of Windows

Note that you need also a patch to use Mach3 with Win10

It can be found here
