Re: Exploding Splines

Well, thanks for all the explanation and I admit the accuracy is maybe a bit high for this particular purpose. But sometimes we also have really small pieces of about 10 cm or have artworks with scale of 1:100 and then the accuracy matters a bit more. And yes ÔÇŽ corners do matter, because we like to ...

Re: Exploding Splines

Hey andrew. On your site it's told that the CAM-addon seems to have some options regarding that problem. How could that maybe help with our problem? https://www.qcad.org/en/qcad-documentation/qcad-features CAM Export: Tool radius compensation: as G41/G42 computed coordinates Entity conversion: Splin...

Where and how can we hire a QCAD script developer?

Hey, I work for an exhibition design company in Berlin an we're considering to hire a CAD/CAM Expert for developing a particular script for one step in our workflow of creating free forms which will be milled later on in the wood workshop. The task of the script would be simplifying polylines which ...

Simplification of Polylines with Arcs compromising on tangency

Would be nice to have a polyline simplification tool which simplifies polylines made of arcs by compromising on tangency as explored here:

Re: Exploding Splines

Ok, really good to know, but as a matter of facts, these corners created by emachine are not visible for us at this scaling and we can ignore them because our woodworking tools are a lot rougher than the given offset tolerance. Do you know any script which compromises on tangency? Or could this be a...

Re: from spline to polyline - how to reduce the segment count?

Hhm, for my opinion the results are unsatisfying, as I posted here: https://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic. ... nes#p21518
I'd love to have a higher accuracy with less points.

Cheers. Benny

Re: Exploding Splines

Hello, exploding splines to polylines with arcs is still unsatisfying. Either I set the tolerance to below 0.1 and I get too many segments or I set the tolerance above 0.1 and I get a path with a too big offset. Any solution? As a reference I put a polyline aside, which I converted with a CAD called...
