Blender CAM 0.5.0

What is new:
  • Exact mode is now faster by around 25-30 %
  • support for text objects - they kind of worked in some situations but that was a coincidence! :) Now text is properly supported.
  • default threshold for optimisation was lowered, the new algorithm works better with that
  • Waterline with layers was fixed, now waterline works much more like in other CAM programs. It is however still experimental feature!
  • Drill paths now support transformations of the source curve object
There are not so many changes as usual, but I'm kind of running in summer-mode ;)
