Re: Handling Sheets

Clint, kind of like that. So I am almost scared to ask but what is the cost of that from T-Wood? And you are flipping 4x8 plywood and we need 5x10 melamine that is full of holes already - will it stay intact doing that? One thing about the vacuum lift is we can pick off the stack by the machine and ...

Handling Sheets

Do any of you have good ways to handle sheets of material on and off the machine other than just brute force manhandle it? We are looking at air hoist on circular post with suction cups but that won't help on flip operations. So we are wondering about a clamp for edge that can flip the sheet. I am c...

Re: Improve Dust Pickup CS43

Clint, we've been using this method for couple years as well as the time we save not cleaning table more than compensates for the extra pass. But we cut both times in Conventional so my question is why do you do 1st pass in Climb? Is it faster or better for chip removal? Just curious. FWIW, we have ...

Re: An Active Forum is a Strong Forum

Mark and others, Sorry being late to this party but because eCabinets runs pretty well for us, I don't go to Forum that often. We determined long ago that eCabinets was production software in our shop and not presentation software so we use it to create machining and not worry about making it pretty...

Re: Angle part

Obviously a speaker cabinet. We have been making these for awhile but they want us to make the front with a 2 degree angle and the back parallel to it. Have added a stretcher with taper but cannot get the speaker or back to leave vertical.
Thanks for the help.

Angle part

Since most of you are smarter than I, I bet somebody knows how to do this, or at least fake the computer into doing it. We have an assembly that resembles a wall cabinet with an inset back. We want to make the back 13 degrees angled from vertical, making it closer to the front at the bottom than at ...

Re: What is wrong with this cabinet?

How odd is that???
Nicolas, Thanks!! But curiously, how did you ever discover this? What made you look for 2 left ends? Never seen this before.

Re: What is wrong with this cabinet?

Clarification: I do not have this cabinet in a room. I just am building this cabinet from library. I don't even have it saved to a job file yet. Just a single cabinet.

Re: What is wrong with this cabinet?

I have exactly the same issue. Just upgraded to new version and now I can't add fixed shelves to this cabinet nor can I equalize the space. The top is inset 2 ways so think Kerry might be right about inset making this happen.(?) Unworkable construction for fixed opening. If I go back and make the to...

Re: Kinda off the subject of eCabs - TWD CNC machines

Don, I answered this in machine topic section for same post. Sorry about double posting or repeating what others have already said. I should have known this group of folks (who always prove to be a tremendous resource for TWD owners) would have covered this by now. I want to own another TWD router s...

Re: Possible switch from other CNC to a TWD CNC

Don, I am surprised nobody else has responded here and sorry for not doing so earlier. We are really busy making stuff so no time to cruise the Forum. 1- We run our machine about 10 hours a day. Owned it since 2003 and upgraded to new controls in 2015 +/-. It is a great pace of machinery and a tool ...

Re: Cutting into adjacent parts

Thanks Thomas adn Troy. We've cut angled parts before without his issue but never a whole set of them all together.
We'll likely try the radius end first so we don't add extra space between every part in nest.

Cutting into adjacent parts

I tried to search forum for answer but couldn't find a thread.
We ran these in eCabinets and nested at machine but we are\getting the tools running into adjacent parts. Since nested on Rolling Nest, any suggestions?

Re: Holiday Deer

Brad, If interested, here is the 2 deer version with 4 antlers, one set with minor modification and set up for 0.735 material. Thanks for your assistance in retrieving this oldie but goodie project! If you want a MasterCam version of this as a .nc file, just ask.
