Re: Line type and camexport.js requests.

Here is my latest config. It uses settings in the dialog as the main default. I did this one about a year ago but have only just lately had the time to use it to cut stuff out.
Best to get it out before the the official one. e_geek

Re: A way to do stepdown?

Hi Kelly Do you need something like this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qh3mElZ2y9s I make my own config for my own needs. As you can see there is very little interest for it(no comments or likes). The same really for this QCadCAM thread lately. I'm not keen to release my config as camexporter.js ...

Re: Camexporter request

Hi Andrew Could I have the following line types added to QCad?. It would save me entering them in with each new release. They are half "Drainage" to show a offset cut in Cam preview using the above code changes. /* To use offset line types in the qcad-cam preview add the following lines to a file an...

Re: YouTube Howto's

The following function sets the direction of full circles that are not split in two. Just add it to GCode.js or your config. It doesn't set the direction of full circles that have been split. The above post deals with that. GCode.prototype.exportArcSegment = function(arc, allowForZeroLength) { var e...

Re: YouTube Howto's

Setting the direction of a closed shape is important in order to get a climb or normal cut. Here is a quick fix to set the direction of full circles. Split full circles must be set for it to work. https://youtu.be/cZtFOTMKBJ4 The changed function is as follows- GCode.prototype.exportSingleContourEnt...

The posts here are not usually positive as not everyone has java script programming and fitter-turning trade experience. With mm / inches and different machine drivers and uses a one config for all is impossible. :cry: With that out of the way I would like to show you what works for me and what I've...

Re: Vector compare ?

Thanks Andrew.

As you can see I'm been on the LinuxCNC simulator. P2 makes the full arc circle work with offset.
Still more testing to be done.

Re: Problems reversing arcs

If so, that is a limitation of the DXF/DWG formats which always store arcs counter-clockwise. Thanks I just learned something or made it clear for me . "Reversed" only changes how Qcad displays the arc. The line type or Arc can never change direction around the centre. Makes sense really. Adding re...

Camexporter request

Hi Andrew I'm working on a better config. I found the line simEntity.setColor(RColor.isByLayer()); in exportLineSegment(). Its not in exportArcSegment(). Can it be removed as it limits the createLayer function. Could the following be changed in createLayer to allow for linetypes? Test1.prototype.cre...

Get Layer Option broken 3.13.1

Hi Andrew I was just having a look at the latest GCode.js. To get it working again I changed line 161 to this // return layer.getCustomProperty("QCAD", name, def); return layer.getCustomProperty("QCADCAM", "Cam/"+ name, def); Unlike the CAM Global options the layer options are lost when the file is ...

Re: Error writing Gcode from Mac (ZNaN)

Hi
"NaN" is returned when when converting a string to a number and no numerals are detected. So check that only numbers are used in the required parts of the CAM dialog.
Gcode.js has very little error checking just like my config below.
