I use the scale -1 every day when making molds.  It very handy.  Seems it doesn't work with the trachoidal milling plugin though. 

One thing I have noticed is that if I use the conversational entry at the bottom with multiple MOPs of different types selected it doesn't always work, but if you go upto the data fields and enter -1 in place of the 1 for the desired axis, and then click ok it works just fine.  If you click apply when you have entered the data manually in the data field it cancels it out.

I was under the impression that I could mirror MOPs and leave the related drawing objects alone.

Yes, you can ; use the transformation matrix in the mops (transform property), not the one in the drawing objects, then use a scale of -1 to do a mirror.

In the attached file, I scale all mops in the reversed side part to -1 in X direction to do a mirror and I also move them 30mm in X

Is this now included in CamBam 1.14.3 and we don't need the plugin now ?

Not exactly, it's a python script that is used with the Script objects only. It's "Solid.py" in the script folder.

I was under the impression that I could mirror MOPs and leave the related drawing objects alone. I created MOPs for the front side of the object (the rudder of a scale ship model), copied the part "Front Side", renamed it "Reverse Side" and tried to mirror its operations along the axis (see enclosed CB file).

However, the mirror copy as well as the original are visible and when I want to generate toolpaths, the original and not the copy is followed.

Am I on the wrong track?

Hi Lou,

The mirror function is used to mirror drawn objects, not MOP's.  If you setup a MOP for a given set of objects, then mirrored the objects of that MOP, the newly created mirrored objects would have new, unique object ID numbers and would not be included in the original MOP.  You need to create a new MOP for the mirrored objects.  I hope this helps.

Best regards,

I run 098 CB on Windows 10 64 bit, and it worked fine for a while then developed an issue where sometimes it would run normally and sometimes it would run painfully slow.  I've been using 1.0 for the last several days (a week maybe) and have not experienced that problem.  It seems to be running great.  I can't wait for it to finally go out of alpha and into beta.

Why is there never a change log at each test release ?

David,

I ask because there is a new sample file called, gear-script.cb
It has solids with closed ends and this code in a script entity,

this.Entities.Add(Solids.ExtrudeSolid("sun-gear",extrude_depth,0.1))

The ‘original’ plastic Bakelite would work well.

I thought of Bakelite and phenolic when I first started thinking about this.  Bakelite can be pretty brittle, so I'm going to give phenolic a try.  I use phenolic handles on lead casting molds, and as a material its a lot cheaper than any of the machinable ceramics. 

Phenolic handles with a threaded brass insert cost a little over a dollar so I can waste them if I want.  A piece of Macor that size would be $30.
