View Full Version : Toolpaths below surface using HeeksCAD/HeeksCNC

07-29-2016, 12:56 AM
I'm trying to use HeeksCAD/CNC for generating toolpaths and G-Codes but there's something wrong because toolpaths are below the solid surface in certain areas:http://www.cnczone.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=328908&stc=1
How could I solve it? How can I change the toolpaths resolution/tolerance (which is "Distance along paths" in BlenderCAM)?
Thank you very much in advance,

I partially solved it. It seems HeeksCNC converts the original objects (imported from a .step file) to STL format temporary files and calculate paths using those files. I imported the objects individually as STL objects with a 0.01mm tolerance (default is 0.1mm) and now the paths look OK.

Look at the picture below:

Is there anybody of you using HeeksCNC? I'd love to be able to modify the overall tolerance as most of CAM software do. I tried changing all parameters in the machining options but I always get the same number of lines. I'll really appreciate your help.
