Description

The Project tool creates a Project object in the active document. The Project object is meant to gather different Path operations to be exported as one G-Code program.

The Project behaves like a Path Compound object, and can contain any number of Path objects. It also contains a Machine object that holds different settings of the machine the G-code program will be fed to.

Usage

  1. Press the Path Project.png Project button
  2. Drag and drop Path objects onto the new Project in the Tree view
