Description

The Path OpActive.svg Active tool in the Path Workbench is used to toggle the active state of an existing path operation. This tool is not available, indicated as a light gray version of the icon, until you have created one or more path operations. Once your Job has at least one path operation the icon will be fully colored indicating it is available for use.


Usage

Deactivate an active operation

  1. Select an operation in the "Operations" group within a Job.
  2. Click on the Path OpActive.svg Active toggle icon.
  3. When you deactivate an operation, you will notice:
    • The operation title and the icon preceding it will turn light gray.
    • The icon in front of the operation's label will be replaced with that of the OpActive's icon.
    • The paths generated from the operation will disappear from the viewport.
    • When using the Path Inspect.png Inspect G-code tool or Path PostProcess.png Post Process command, no g-code will be provided from the deactivated operation.

Activate an deactivated operation

  1. Select a deactivated operation (light gray text and icon) in the "Operations" group within a Job.
  2. Click on the Path OpActive.svg Active toggle icon.
  3. When you activate an operation, you will notice:
    • The operation title and the icon preceding it will turn colorful.
    • The icon in front of the operation's label will be replaced with that which corresponds to the operation.
    • The paths generated from the operation will be recomputed and displayed in the viewport.
    • When using the Path Inspect.png Inspect G-code tool or Path PostProcess.png Post Process command, the operation's g-code will be provided.
