|Introduced in version|
This tool creates a new 3D Surface Operation. A 3D Surface operation uses the entire top surface of the 3D Model to generate G-Code for the Job.
The 3D Surface Tool interfaces to OCL.pyd, a 3rd party Open Source module titled OpenCamLib, that generates tool paths from a 3D Model. OpenCamLib is not integrated directly into FreeCAD to ensure their license is not violated. It requires that Experimental Features are enabled.
