Line type and camexport.js requests.

Hi Andrew
It would be good if we had the line types in the attached drawing which are a variation of "drainage". They could be used to show offset cutting in the CAM preview document.
I've made a small change to createLayer to set line types. Changes are marked with // .

Code: Select all

Codesrl.prototype.createLayer = function(layerName, color, lineType) {//
	if (lineType == null)//
		lineType = "continuous";//
    var layerId = this.newDocument.getLayerId(layerName);
    if (layerId!==RObject.INVALID_ID) {
        return layerId;
    }

    var layer = new RLayer(
        this.newDocument,
        layerName,
        false, false,
        color,
        this.newDocument.getLinetypeId(lineType),//
        RLineweight.Weight000
    );

    var op = new RAddObjectOperation(layer);
    this.newDocumentInterface.applyOperation(op);

    return this.newDocument.getLayerId(layerName);
};

I got the line types working in the CAM preview for offset cutting.

As you can see I now have arc in and out mid entity working thanks to the added (first and last entity)functions a few versions back. Ramp in arc is green and ramp out is red. Offset starts along the green arc and finishes after the red at the rapid. Later I might add zero moves to make it technically correct.

I can initialise the global widgets, but is it possible to put extra values in the orientation and ramp drop downs from my configuration file ?

Having 'climb cut' and 'normal cut' in forced orientation I could have the inner contours do automatic reverse direction like above, better values in the ramp drop down would set the diameter of the arc, at the moment its all done in layer names.

Here is my latest config. It uses settings in the dialog as the main default. I did this one about a year ago but have only just lately had the time to use it to cut stuff out.
Best to get it out before the the official one. e_geek
