Hmmm something wrong with offset's direction... I'll check it right now.

Revision 146



I've forgot to add "csp_join_subpaths(offsetted_subpath)[0]" to the fine cut calculation. Now should work fine...

Thanks again for the bug report :D and sorry for the bugs :oops: !
When I will start to write the code correct from the beginning :roll: ?

Revision 147



New function in Post-processor: flip or flip axis. It does what you wanted.
Post-processor is in the "Preferences" tab. You can chose from predefined post-processors or add your own to "Additional post-processor".
Example:
flip(x); flips x axis
flip(xy); flips x and y axis
flip(y,x); flips x,y axis
flip(x,y); flips x,y axis

Ok ! I'll test... I've think that was a miss...because that was strange problem about the previous ...
Hope that's all is good now... because you can refresh your head... :beer:
Post processor come to be working ... very nice. I think that's this give more powerfull to gcodetools...

Guys good work!
I have a question, its not clear to me how to reverse the cutting? I dont see the option for that... I want to cut from right to left. Thanks.

Use Path -> Reverse path from Inkscape's menu.

Also you can add a marker to the path to check it's direction. To do that open stroke style dialog at the Fill and Stroke panel (Ctrl+Shift+F and choose the third tab). And set middle marker which will have "_Smf_End" like name.

Thanks for a quick reply! Will try that.
I'll submit a few pictures if I get something interesting done.

Also, what is the latest version now? I downloaded one off the first post in this thread and after installing it said new version is available...
I'm using v 1.6.01

Hmmm latest version should be 1.6.04 and there\s nothing new there except some bugfixes.

1.6.04 should be in the first post of this thread. viewtopic.php?f=33&t=35#latest_version

I haven't used the lathe function in a while since the last lathe broke, finally got another one converted and ready to test but it seems like adding G18 does nothing, it still says "bad character y used"...
I have a normal XZ lathe.
Attaching my output file, maybe you can help.

Never mind, I figured it out, I was generating "path to Gcode" after Lathe when I did not need to... :evil:

Glad to hear that you've managed it out :).

PS Have you seen path preparation function?

No, where can I find it and what does it do?

Thanks, are there plans to include it in the non dev version?

Sure, in a month or so it will be the stable version.
