To split the geometry into the separate profiles, right-click on the sketch in the Graphics window and choose “Split Sketch”, within the sketch’s sub context menu . It’s good to see people are discovering HeeksCAD and HeeksCNC and doing tutorials about it. Neil did some tutorials about using HeeksCAD. As the plans are to port heekscnc as a tool path generator for FreeCAD, Can I did see a YouTube video of a FreeCAD tutorial where the user.

Ok i am confused as all get out Now, how in the world do you make it generate Gcode from an STL file?? I can import the STL and it loads, the object shows up fine, but i can’t seem to get it to do anything from there.
The options i have been seeing online, such as select the solid and right click it and add sketches isn’t even there, nor is click on new machining operation and select herkscnc object. Thats not there in the software either.
So i am guessing a revision change hid everything or i am just plain too dumb to figure it out. The main thing i plan on doing is engraving and making some small front panels for enclosures, not a challenge when you can create a Uttorial file in Inkscape and open that direct in HeeksCNC and define all the operations, the workflow is actually really good for a free program.
I just can’t see how your supposed to work with STL files. There is a tutorial on youtube that I cannot find. Import the STL file and orient it. Draw a sketch around the shape.
This sketch limits the area from where you want to remove material. Use Attach operation 4.
Select the sketch and do a pocket operation Normally not using attach a pocket will just empty the area of the sketch, making it flat bottomed. With the attach the toolpath will not go below the surface defined by the STL file. The attach operation do not influence the horizontal toolpath, only the hight Tags for this Thread camcam softwarechangecheapclickdxfdxf filesengravingfilesfreegcodeheekscncinkscapemachiningobjectonlineopenpanelsproblemprogramselectsoftwaresolidstlstl files.
