Notice I said "easier" not the "best"  :D

Other than that I personally don't have any issues using Regedit rather than Notepad

Some bug fixes:
(1) Error - Save-Load - fixed
(2) Zero centre and radius values - fixed.
(3)  I have tried to fix/catch an issue that may occur if the settings are saved for a particular Shape seed , then Loaded with another (or no) Shape seed selected.  A Warning message is provided - to re-select the required Shape seed.
(4) Some additional notes in the User Guide to clarify some issues.

There may be more bugs, as all the permutations are explored.  Please let me know as you find them

Hello Geoff  ;)

Just tried to update the translation file ; Save settings and Load settings buttons are not translatable ;)

Hello Geoff  ;)

I just finished to translate the doc to FR for the plugin.

some small errors encountered on the doc.

page 4: in "cut section" I think that the "curved pocket" text must be replaced by "spherical pocket" ?

page 10: in "cut accuracy" .. 0.001mm should be replaced by 0.01mm I think

There is a translation problem with the "WARNING: The chosen tool diameter may be too large to follow profile accurately....." a new entry in the translation file is added each time that the warning appears .., (new entry each time because the Max error text change each time...) ... see picture.

If, by error, a circle or an arc has been selected as a profile shape + a "path" shape (curved surface), CB thrown an exception. (unable to cast a cambam.cad.circle to a cambam.cad.polyline ...)

Dear David

I am attaching V2.0.4 that  addresses all of your bugs, plus some more.  The new User Guide doc includes your suggested corrections also.

Thanks again

Im making an attempt at using the curved surface plugin and so far am failing. I am trying to pocket a round slot into my part. Im getting results but it seems no matter what values i adjust, I see no changes to the produced surface. Ive attached an image of the area of concern. I want the entire groove to be rounded without the flats on the sides. The second image is an example of what i am trying to accomplish. The pocket should be a depth of 0.4" as to fit a cigar with a diameter of 0.8"

Why not route it as a 2D 'slot' using a 0.785" or 0.8125" diameter round-nose mill?

If 0.8125" is too wide, just run the slot twice with a 0.015" step-over.

That's just not a 3D surface application, and better-served by simpler methods.

Even Home Depot carries 7/8" round-nose router bits for wood!

lloyd, that was actually my initial plan but decided to try doing it the free way and using the bits and resources I have on hand. Although this may not be the ideal application for the plugin, I feel it is a simple task to learn on. I see this having value in my future projects if i learn to use it right.

Hello

Yep, or if you can't use a so large tool, it is easy to do with regular 3D mop + a 3D object for the semi-cylindrical shape.

For another user on a french forum, I do a small video to generate this kind of shape (bigger, it's 80mm of Ø)
