Control Nesting on a PC

I'm sure I saw an announcement or email or something about running control nesting (for a Thermwood) on a PC.... but can't find anything about it now.
Can someone point me towards the info please.

Thanks.

Regards,
Dave

Re: Pocket tool

Rob, Just checking if you found a magic forumula. I've always come down to: if sharpening costs a little less than new and they don't last quite as long as new, I should save myself any potential complications due to smaller diameter, do fewer tool changes, and not handle/track them for sharpening.....

Re: Pocket tool

Larry, This would be a useful upgrade to CN. The same way drill operations are changed to pocket operations (when a large enough drill or interpolate tool is not available); it would be helpful if CN could change all types of dado operations to pockets when all the rout operation tools are too small...

You're wrong. Check the manual.

Bad KD holes - CN 5.47

The "pockets" created for KD fitting holes in the attached file are bad. See code starting at Line 4209, Sheet:3 part:5 (T20) in attached CNC file. By changing T20 to allow interpolation, we're up and running. With T20 as pocket tool, no drill or interpolation for T20, convert line and arc...

Re: CN Feature Request- One DXF Multiple parts

Larry, Thanks for the quick feedback. We work with BobCad and when we hide (or "blank" as BobCad calls it) the data is still in the DXF file and "visible" to CN. If I'm understanding your suggestion correctly, your CAD package saves only the visible data to the file? Is that Auto...

Re: max penetration and speed problem

On second thought, this may not be the same problem... but the "max feed size" may still get you around it.

Re: max penetration and speed problem

This problem has been acknowledged by Thermwood.

Until it's fixed you can work around it by setting your "Max feed size" smaller so the speed reduction doesn't kick in.

CN Feature Request- One DXF Multiple parts

A while back there was a release of CN that added some type of single or composite file interface for KCDW and perhaps others. It would be very helpful to have a similar capacity for DXF files we create in CAD programs, where one DXF file can contain many parts to be nested by CN . To give you an id...

Re: Order of operations in DXF

Terry, You can order different operations using the same convention you use for chain layers. I.e. Chain compout1... pocket2... centerline3... chain compout4... The only thing that overrides this is if you have "do drills first" set in CN, and that only effects drill operations. Regards, D...

Re: Multipule pass cuts

Terry,
That was added in November with the release of CN 5.42. Check the CN manual for "Max Penetration"

CN Chain vs. Outline feed speeds.

I'm probably missing something, but since I can't figure out what, I will punt. The chain layer in this file gets a feed speed of 152 and the outline runs at full speed. (250) Short of setting the "max feed size" to 0, Is there a way to get CN to run the outline and chain layers in this fi...

Re: One Part, More than one Edgebanding, Slab Doors too

Hi Larry,
I need to add one more... Face frame parts with edgebanding currently get the same silent treatment from label printing as slab doors.

i.e. no picture and "EB: none"
