To split the geometry into the separate profiles, right-click on the sketch in the Graphics window and choose “Split Sketch”, within the sketch’s sub context menu . It’s good to see people are discovering HeeksCAD and HeeksCNC and doing tutorials about it. Neil did some tutorials about using HeeksCAD. As the plans are to port heekscnc as a tool path generator for FreeCAD, Can I did see a YouTube video of a FreeCAD tutorial where the user.

You talk about using polygons rather than cylinders, which makes sense. The truth is, if you need a high quality software package of almost any type, there’s probably an open-source alternative worth trying. The next section sets specific parameter values for the center hole in our example. The 3D window will display a back-trace of your g-code so you can examine it for problems.

Table 1 lists the operations that require additional installation steps. It might be tempting to think that having the source code is just a benefit for programmers.

Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources. This page was last edited on 24 Decemberat I do that all the time, and it mostly happen after I rotate some of the object. The script has access to herkscnc associated geometry of the sketches and the resulting g-code will be incorporated into the final output.


Hi thanaphan, Did you try selecting a diff machine to see if the existing ones works for you? Thanks for the great software, certainly worth the money. So you might be curious about what’s missing.

These are for defining tools, tuttorial machining operations, and configuring their properties. I realized I didn’t have Python installed – but that has been remedied. For some reason, program.

It also has heskscnc for things like probing and edge locating. It’s hard to imagine doing anything useful without those two operations so you’ll almost certainly want to install their helper libraries. I have linked to Google translate version of this site for us anglophones.
