Re: Blind dado flip of not cutting correctly

First thing I'd do there is measure the popup pin locations accurately and make sure they are correct in the THM software.

Re: Full Dado with Pilot Holes?

I should also mention, notice those file names: The one with 3-4 in it is for 3/4" material, the 1-2 is for 1/2" material. (can't use slashes in filenames.) So don't use the wrong one on the wrong material, or your pilot hole will be off center.

"These things were always so much easier until Windows started "helping" (getting in the way of) perform tasks." --- you can say that again! Not sure what version of Windoze you're using, therefore I'm not sure how much nannying you need to overcome. But this way should work: Re-...

Re: Edgebanding Appearing without being Applied

Hi Nat, there is a setting for that. When you have your cabinet open in the Cabinet Editor, click the EB button, and then the "Add Part Components" tab. If your Up/Down Stretcher has an edgebanding set there, then every stretcher you add will have the banding on it.

Re: Full Dado with Pilot Holes?

The pilot holes are actually custom KD/RTA hole patterns, because when you choose Lock Dado as a joinery method, it wants to use KD/RTA fasteners and their associated hole patterns. So, you just make a "pattern" that is a single hole, get rid of the hardware, and voila. I've uploaded our p...

Re: Full Dado with Pilot Holes?

If this is what you're after, all you do is use a lock dado, and set the tenon thickness to 100%. Works great, we use it all the time.

Re: Write CNC stalls

Same here... our CS41 had some problems, replaced hard drive with solid state, still slow as molasses. Not unusual to take 1-2 hours to nest a job, which meant that if something needed to be changed, or offfall added, it was a MAJOR pain. We debated about upgrading the controller, but that's a major...

Re: How do I stop being thick?

Hi Neville! If you right-click in the custom layout and click Custom Layout Parameters, there is a checkbox for "Show Dimensions in MM Only"... that was pretty recently added. This applies to the Custom Layout and the Line Drawing areas. It then won't display large dimensions in meters. :w...

Re: Trouble cutting cabinet parts

You can also use the "thru" joinery to avoid flip ops in a lot of cases.

Re: Close call today, CNC fire

I've done the "spit on the burning wasteboard" thing too...anything to stop that fire! Curious as to why drilling the 1/4" hole would cause it though, are you using a compression or downspiral bit for that op?

Re: Edge Pull placement

We just did a job with those identical pulls. Didn't use a hole pattern though. I'm not sure if you could, because they need to be on the back of the door. Unless you're looking just for a graphical representation. Corey made one, it looked good on the presentation view.

Re: Re-nest specific material

We've done that before as well, and it does work, but if you label the parts with the colored symbols (as we do) then the whole job has to be done in one nest, otherwise the symbols won't match from nest to nest.

Re: Printing labels from THM desktop

Clicking on labels.exe also does nothing, so looks like I need that installer.
