Re: cutlist and nest show different quanity

If you create the cutlist before nesting, the number you get is an estimate. Always run the nest first, then the cutlist.

Re: Aspire export/import

The .NC file created with Aspire is not imported into Control Nesting but is run from the Super Control like any .NC file. The post you selected will probably work. You may want to look at the .NC file you create to see that it does what you want. I modified a post slightly to get what I wanted. As ...

Re: Print Engine Error

Just out of curiosity I tried the export option at the machine and the desktop version. Both display the error. Never use export but there does seem to be a problem there.

Re: THM sync on Win XP control

Jeremy,

I just went through this. I think the solution was to run the export function on your machine and import that into the desktop version. That should get all your settings.

Re: THM Desktop on 10 year old machine

Thanks for the tip, Forrest. I'm enjoying how quickly I can nest, print and create the cnc file with the desktop version.

Re: THM Desktop on 10 year old machine

Thanks Josh. Ran my first job out of THM Desktop yesterday and no issues. It saved me a whole bunch of time.

Do you export from THM to the desktop version when tooling changes?

Re: THM Desktop on 10 year old machine UPDATE

With a little help from Thermwood, we resolved the problem I was having. The desktop version has all my settings and tooling from the control. I would still like to hear from those that have been using the desktop version for a while. Have you encountered any issues running programs created on the d...

THM Desktop on 10 year old machine

I've purchased THM Desktop and can't run the sync program on my Windows XP control. Anyone using this on a machine like mine? Please PM me if you can.

Thank you.

Re: Cabinet changes/deleted after CNC

I just created the twd for the same job without changing material thickness. The drawer boxes are the correct depth.

Re: Cabinet changes/deleted after CNC

David,

The cutlist in eCabs has the correct drawer side length. What was nested at the router was shorter than what was designed.

Re: Cabinet changes/deleted after CNC

Just had a customer call about drawerbox sides being cut short. eCabinets has the drawer sides at 21" long. The cut list shows them at 21". I changed material thickness when creating the twd. The parts where cut at 18".

Hope this helps.

Re: Order of Drilling Stacked Holes

No experience with SB link. On my machine I would use a 10mm brad point to drill through. Use the 3/8 to pocket the 20mm hole. In CN there's a setting to "do drilling operations first", or something like that. Has worked well for me.

Good luck.

Re: Nesting issues

Don,

I've been trying to reproduce the issue you're having with grain. So far, eCabinets is nesting correctly. It may be easier to create a new drawerbox.

Re: Constraint Manager - help needed

No problem, Donald.

Click on the "Edit" button in Constraint Manager then "Edit Constraint". Click on the constraint you want to edit. In the textbox to the right of the blue text enter the formula h/2.
