Some wishes :)

  • Anonymous - 2012-09-08

    Is there any official wishlist for pyCam? I couldn't find but I have some wishes:
    1. I use gravure mode to generate paths for cutting shapes on cnc milling mashine and it would be great if I could set the cutter over bridge doesn't go to safety position, but to bridge height - id would be great!
    2. The option  for setting speed For Z axis while moving into material (G1) would be fantastic too.

    Thank You!

    Hi pastazkota,

    thanks for your feedback!

    Indeed there is a wishlist - but it is probably quite well hidden in the wiki:

    1) I am not sure if I understand this. Please take a look at the following picture - I think it demonstrates that PyCAM only goes up to the height of the support bridge in gravure mode.

    Please explain your issue in a bit more detail if you meant something else.

    2) Yes - I like this feature as well. It is part of the wishlist now.

    Hello Lars!
    Apropos Wish List i really didn't found it, sorry :)

    1. You are right i found it after viewing Your screenshot - when i was using the gravure mode i had the bound setting for Z axis set to 0, and it worked like that:

    when I set it to 1 mm it works FINE :D!

    Ad. 2 Thank You!

    Best Regards
