Description

Path FromShapes dosn't match the current Path workflow. For that reason it's moved to the experimental features.


This tool generates tool-paths from Path Object edges.

Tool-paths are uncompensated for tool radius. There is no Tool controller associated with the generated tool-paths .

How to use

All edges associated with the 3D Model selection will be included.

  1. Select edges by selecting the entire object from the 3D view or document tree, or by selecting individual edges, or by Faces from the 3D view.
  2. Press the Path GcodeFromShape.png From Shape button

The output tool-path is added outside the Path Job.
