BINGO!

And big sorry !

I forgot to put the "gcodetools-dev.py" to the extension directory.

Thank you so much for your time and effort Nick!

I have to document the process of making a wooden toy. It's a great chance to do it with Gcodetools.
So I will show you this "manual" in Hungarian language.

Thanks again!

And what's about gcodetools-dev.py is it there too?

------------
Aha! you've already found that :)

PS If you write a manual it will be great!
Notify me when it will be ready, I'll put a link to it in Gcodetools description page.

Hi,

I think I found something not correctly working:
When "Parametrize Gcode" is selected as post-processor AND flip(x) as additional post-processor, then the produced Gcode is not correct.
You can test: draw few circles, make Gcode with no post-processor but use flip(x), and the very same but select "Parametrize Gcode" for postproc.

Take a look at the procduced Gcode: in parametrized flipped code, the G02/G03 and their I/J parameters are not set correctly to minus value.
I did not tried with other transformation or other axes, but the same issue is in stable and dev version.

James

Parameterize is a quite specific funtion... In what order do you apply postprocessors? flip first, and parameterize after?

Hmmm... I do not remember how are they applied...
try using them both as additional post-processor:
flip(x); parameterize();

Hi Nick,

When I use both of them as additional post-proc then it works. Thanks.
I sent you a PM. Would you have time to look at it?
