Description

The Path OpActiveToggle.svg Active tool in the Workbench Path.svg Path Workbench is used to toggle the active state of an existing path operation. This tool is not available, indicated as a light gray version of the icon, until you have created one or more path operations. Once your Path Job.svg Job has at least one path operation the icon will be fully colored indicating it is available for use.


Usage

Deactivate an active operation

  1. Select an operation in the "Operations" group within a Job.
  2. Click on the Path OpActiveToggle.svg Active toggle icon.
  3. When you deactivate an operation, you will notice:
    • The operation title and the icon preceding it will turn light gray.
    • The icon in front of the operation's label will be replaced with that of the Path OpActiveToggle.svg OpActiveToggle's icon.
    • The paths generated from the operation will disappear from the viewport.
    • When using the Path Inspect.svg Inspect G-code tool or Path PostProcess.svg Post Process command, no g-code will be provided from the deactivated operation.
