the drawing has a circle with a line going through it. I want to trim the line ends to the circle with the remaining lines inside the circle.
select the circle as limiting entity.
command line says Choose entity to trim. click the line on the right side of center, the excess line on the right is properly trimmed.

FS#1877: Post Processor Tutorial H. Stiekema Mon, 15 Apr 2019 14:14:12 +0000 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?
