If sketches can't be opened - check the through/tip settings of the
Path tool Bar
Important to start off with origins placed from the edge of where
the stock will be - FreeCad is not good at letting one change things
after more items have been created.. makes errors appear..
We want the origin to be on the STOCK - not the part..
Create Job dialog
When we create the 'path job' click on the corner to the stock
created and select set origin.
Set processor to LinuxCNC (most likely)
Order by - most likely the default (fixture ) will work for you
Split output - creates separate files for each operation.
Op Defaults tab
clearance_height is the top of all vises, clamps and other
obstruction in the whole job. Any move AT OR ABOVE clearance
height is assumed to be clear and can go at RAPID speed.
safe_height is the top of the stock material. Any move
BELOW safe height must be at FEED rate except for retraction.
Moves between safe height and clearance can be at RAPID speed
within the operation but aren't guaranteed clear between ops.
start_depth is the top of the model.
