I posted a while ago regarding interior path cuts, someone graciously helped me out with the file, but I was left not understanding how to do it for myself, I’m attaching the file we would be cutting, ideally I’d be left understanding how to set up these external and interior cuts in the future. I’ve read through the wiki but everything I tried never worked correctly. I’ll also attach the file that the user made for me (I’m having trouble finding the old post, have a feeling I accidentally have two accounts). I was taught making a file from a .svg since they are more intricate shapes - I’m going to give inkscape a try but for now just need to know the correct solution for setting up an external cut followed by interior cut outs (that go all the way through the material and are not being milled) the old post said this was possible in the newer version of freecad, simply at a loss here, just need the step by steps if anyone can help!
yes_cutoutcorrectpockets_herbk is the file made for me, it worked perfectly for what I needed,
the file I now need to figure out how to make (and ideally learn for ever) is the sunglasses, i need to router out the outline of the sunglasses from .25" acrylic, and then route out the eyeglass holes. I know how to just out the outline of the sunglasses, but everything I try to do (even in 0.19 path usage) just doesn’t work for me. Any help would be amazing! I’m not sure if i’m just missing something very basic. In freecad 0.18, I import the .svg > scale > move > create body > create pad> go to path workbench and create a job, importing my information and creating a contour cut, but not sure with the 0.19 what I need to do in order to get the inside cuts to work.
Thanks in advance!
