Hi Andrew,

I am trying to ‘HP pen plotter’ a test file, created by AutoCAD 10.

Saving the in QCAD loaded file goes fine. However, the tool table is empty now.

Trying to make a new tool 1 Errors it exists already but does not show up in the tool table.

What do I miss?

 1820 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD/CAMBug ReportMedium CAM Export: exporting text entities broken ClosedH. Stiekema Task Description

Hi Andrew,

Kubuntu, QCAD/CAM 3.21.3

Font Standard. Selected as ‘single line’ font for engraving with mill or laser.

While CAM Exporting as G-code Laser (Offset) MM, or as Linux CNC, Exporting gets trapped in a loop.

In Font Standard the glyph’s ? & $ @ s S Q and 2 contains unwanted Z-movements. It seems these glyphs entities are not alligned properly; endpoint last line does not meet startpoint next line; why else the Z-movements?

Could this misallignment also traps Exporting?

Hi Andrew,

I have added a PWM Laser post processor.

You can add it to QCAD’s post processor directory

Hallo Andrew,

Fiddling with the drill-toolpath error, a solution seems to be to add the drill location as a ‘single point’ in the ‘source’ sublayer. I am using this as a Bug Work Around.

Hi Andrew,

Nosing around in the QCAD Reference Manual I noticed a misperception in the Mirror / Flip commands.

 1814 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD/CAMBug ReportLow FS#1813 Revisited ClosedH. Stiekema Task Description

 FS#1813  Revisited. (Several bugs in QCAD/CAM 3.21.3. when generating G-code in “G-code Laser (offset).)

Hi Andrew,

After closing the bug notification I realised I didn’t add the DXF. My apologies for not attaching the DXF-file at hand.

Fortunately I am not the only one;

You can fix the missing G01 by replacing your file postprocessors/GCodeLaserOffsetMM.js with the attached updated file.

Since it was not attached, that makes two of us.

Anyway I have attached the DXF-file to be tested.

 1830 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD/CAMSuggestionLow HP7580 Penplotter ClosedH. Stiekema Task Description

Hi Andrew,

I was fiddeling around with a copy of the hpgl postprocessor, and has it adapted, up and running for a HP7580 penplotter. You may add this to QCAD if you like.

Poking and peeking in the other postprocessor files, I found enough information to generate a very acceptable hpgl.plt file now, including the required pen changes.

The purpose of a ‘bracket-field’ (as [S] ) is clear to me. Where are [S#] and [S!] used for?

1843QCAD BugtrackerQCAD/CAMBug ReportLowCreating ToolPath StallsAssignedH. Stiekema Task Description

Hi Andrew,

Still working with and on CAM HPGL for the HP7580 pen plotter.

I have added a penplotter test drawing, that might be used for testing en callibrating plotter and pens. You may add it to the Examples-directory.

QCAD has a lot of trouble creating toolpaths and exports. Much too often it shuts itself down, or gets stalled. Why? I am not sure.

Hi Andrew

QCAD/CAM misses a hpgl.plt import. If gerber and G-code can, so should plt.

1847QCAD BugtrackerQCAD/CAMBug ReportLowBUG MEMORYAssignedH. Stiekema Task Description

Hi Andrew,

Still working on creating HPGL.PLT toolpaths for the HP7580 pen plotter. QCAD has some trouble creating toolpaths. Too often it shuts itself down, or the PC gets stalled.

Recreating the same error however is possible

Hi Andrew,

While generating a toolpath I stumbled upon an odd error.

1877QCAD BugtrackerQCAD/CAMFeature RequestLowPost Processor TutorialAssignedH. Stiekema Task Description

Hallo Andrew,

I am still busy on the never ending G-code story. Doing so I wrote a small Post Processor Tutorial for all those nerds who wants to write their own. If you like it you might add it to QCAD. However, since English is not my native tongue I suggest checking it would be wise.

Meanwhile I have downloaded the source code, and could not find the CAM’s Drill-path-script. I am now using a negative Drill Cut Depth to set a Laser Dwell time, were as a field “Dwell Time (in seconds)” in the Drill-path would be more appropiate. Is this script open source available or is it part of ‘closed part’ of QCAD?

Hallo Andrew,

Still busy on the never ending G-code story. Urgently needed the very handy G-code Block Toolpath. This ‘toolpath’ also solves a lot of “editing requests”.

Hallo Andrew

It would be more than conveniant, defining the drilling locations of the drill toolpath, by selecting a circle’s center point.

Hallo Andrew,

testing the drill toolpath I used single point markers.

In 3D simulation the tool drills the toolpath AND uses the drill as a mill.

Cam Export and generated G-code is not effected.
