This topic is for anyone testing out the new toolpath architecture to leave their feedback or discuss it in general.
For your reference, the instructions for enabling the toolpath architecture are below.
Most of the features in this release are invisible, making the code easier to extend and build on in the future. But their are some features you will be interested in:
Better safety height logic: Easel will try to raise up the bit the minimum required amount knowing what has already been carved. This is particularly good for carving tabs.
Travel direction while carving a shape with tabs is kept constant, no more reversing.
Better detail pass behavior when using the two-stage cut feature.
To enable the beta toolpath architecture, go to “Machine” -> “Advanced”. You’ll see a checkbox for enabling it. You’ll see a notice whenever it is enabled, so that if something goes wrong you can switch to the old architecture easily and see if the problem came from the beta toolpath architecture.
If you aren’t in the mood for experimenting with something new, no worries, you can leave it disabled and nothing will change for you.
Try out tabs in particular, they should be much faster!
Leave any feedback you have in this thread. Thanks so much for helping us!
