    fZ + Python + CO2

    I have had some experience with a 60W and found it to be just a bit lacking in what I wanted to cut. But, I have been itching to get one ever since (about 10 years ago) First plans are to build some tools to aid in my nano-manufacturing business. kim, Don't know the brand, but from what I can tell, there is 1 actual chineese manufacturer of these with a number of different branding. Some brands seem to outfit them better than others. Better Tubes or controllers or ....? In my case, I went with one that had the better controller so I could use it with the LightBurn software. (it runs on a Mac as well as PC) I would always consider jobbing it out. ¢£

    fZ + Python + CO2

    What do you think? Finally bit the bullet and ordered one of these. And this is what I have been itching about for python! Looking to make some dedicated toolsets for creating patterns for the CO2 machine. Don't know how far I will be able to push it, but I am gonna go for it! ¢£

    Query an ellipse angle.

    Ah! Agreed, something like that would be of aid. Not sure how far the python API will take things, but if it makes sense, I could add an additional tool. Pretty sure it won't let me modify existing tools. ¢£

    Move End of Arc Perpendicular to Axis

    Not that this is a complete fix, but you can set your grid snaps. If you set them large enough, you don't have to get too finessed when clicking. But, yes, it does appear that the controls of this could be more nuanced. In, my mind though, when applying to a segment, it should behave as it does. To me, that is a tool built for a specific purpose. When applying it to the axis of a plane, it is a little more arbitrary. So, kind of get that too. ¢£

    Move End of Arc Perpendicular to Axis

    3. Looks like it is the Click point if you are using the axis. If you are using a segment, it will start at one end of the segment. ¢£

    Windows 10 on ARM Support

    Some things need to be considered. Mac or Windows. How much code was optimized in Assembly? The more that was done, the longer it will take to convert. Automated software to re-compile won't do any good for such code. ADS may or may not have optimized their code in such a way... And, that is one thing. The other, what about the libraries they draw from? ACIS? Other APIs fZ uses? I don't know what other technology they license. Even if all written in higher-level languages, The APIs may need to be built for the specific silicon too. It isn't just up to ADS. Though, I too hope. ¢£

    Query an ellipse angle.

    Trigonometry to the rescue. Measure the minor axis and the major axis and divide them to get a ratio - - - minor/major then plug that ratio into the arcsin(ratio) function. It is the ratio that counts, not the actual size or units. So, it could be measured on-screen. So, if you measure a circle that is laid back to appear as an elips and the minor axis is 1/2 of the major axis arcsin(.5) = 30º If it were facing you directly on so that you see the whole circle 5'/5' = 1 arcsin(1) = 90º arccos give you the other perspective arccos(1) = 0º arccos(.5) = 60º (so, which you want to use depends on from which angle you want to measure) arcsin: https://www.rapidtables.com/calc/math/Arcsin_Calculator.html arccos: https://www.rapidtables.com/calc/math/Arccos_Calculator.html It would work for other shapes too, as long as you know what the shape is and how to figure out that ratio. (square would be the exact same as the circle) If you want to know more on why this works, I could give a more in-depth version.

    Rounding Question

    Really complex items where I cannot get it to round at all, I will loft a circle around the face I want to round, s-split then t-Loft.

    Rounding Question

    Steve, I only use the rounding tool when I want all the rounding the same on an object. And Apply it at the object topological level. If I want only some or different rounding, then I use the control round. Actually, it never occurred to me to pre-pick segments or faces using the round tool. Always something to learn, thanks! ¢£

    Rounding Question

    Have you tried the control rounding?
  12. Thanks for clarifying! that helps! The API isn’t quite complete yet, (though I haven’t looked into this particular challenge with it). I don’t see why, at least eventually, that this couldn’t be accomplished through it. I hope to make a tool that will allow one to rotate around an arbitrary axis, similar to how the resolve tool does. Been ages since I have done that kind of math, however. Don’t expect it soon. €£

    Alternative method to Coke bottle: Advanced Modeling

    Jakob, It is appreciated to know that this is appreciated! €£
  15. Now it will rotate with the axis perpendicular to the ref plane with the axis through CP, OC, and OO. How would it act if you chose parallel? An Axis parallel to a plane can have an infinite number of possibilities. Could you clarify? ¢£
