Ghost tool paths
Message 1 of 10
We are still testing the beta, maybe this issue has been solved in the final release.
When we calculate a tool path, other tool paths randomly disappear:
-when the mouse cursor leaves the CAM manager zone, some tool paths disappear from the main window
-these tool paths are also missing in the solid verify dialog box
The only way we found to work around this issue is to re-calculate all tool paths.
Hopefully, it's pretty fast as they probably are still cached, but when you have numerous tool paths it's difficult to see if some are missing.
Can somebody confirm this issue?
Has it been addressed in the final release?

Can you make an screenshot ?
I have some "ghost toolpath" if i calculate an operation, edit some settings and calculate again. This "ghosts" will be removed if you close the settings and go bak to the settings, or you can pusch to the button an the bottom of the settings page, right next the light bulb.
The final version is out now, but make they ANY fixes ?

Ghost was probably not the best word. I mean that when we calculate one path, another calculated path disappears. It seems still calculated in the manager, but disappears from the graphical main view and from the solid verify dialog box.
Difficult to make a screenshot, as it disappears :)

Yes, I tested this button, but it is only a Redraw button. The issue is not only a display problem.
I hope the attached screenshot will clarify.
In the Manager tab, all path tools have the calculated icon, with the little red lines. 11 paths have been calculated.
But in fact, some calculated tool path disappeared. Not only they vanished in the 3D view, but it's not only a display issue, as they also disappear from the Solid verify dialog box, where only 8 toolpaths remain available in this case.
We have to recalculate all toolpaths each time this occurs. And it occurs as soon as we have a few toolpaths.

Unfortunately, our calendars did not match and we were not able to test the beta before last week.
As this forum seems active, and as the ZWsoft team participate, we will continue providing feedback.
Too late for the first release, but I hope you will continue to take user feedback into account for a SP1.
I won't have access to our test file until monday, but will test the final version ASAP.
All the best,

Just sent the file to the address you provided.
It's a 4.5 MB file, so let me know if you have a problem getting it, I will provide a download link.

We did not encounter this bug with the final release of ZW3D 2013, after a few days of use. So, it seems this issue is solved.
We noticed also that some other glitches of the beta have disappeared in the CAM section (we don't use intensively CAD functions). Obviously, good work has been done before the final release.
