Pocket operation support?

Post by artisanicview » Sun Mar 13, 2016 11:10 am

I have some closed shapes and I want to make a pocket operation on them using QCAD/CAM demo, but I canțt find any references to this kind of mechanisation.

Is there any support for "Pocket" operations in CAM module. I just need do make a basic pocket on some closed shapes.

No. QCAD/CAM currently only traces the available geometry using G-Code or another output format. Anything more advanced would have to be programmed into a specific configuration using custom properties to tag entities and JavaScript to program the desired output.
