Re: Pocket Screw Joinery

In Construction Parameters for the part in question look at KD/RTA. Lock Dado, Pocket Screw Placement. Change Bottom to Top as needed to achieve desired placement.

Error message lacking info

It would be helpful if this dialog box contained the name of the cabinet with the problem. Any chance to get this added?

Thank you.

Re: Can not open ecabinets

Just fishing here but give this a try. Uninstall eCabinets, then look in C:\ProgramData\Thermwood\eCabinet Systems for any files ending in .mdb or .ldb. If you see any, delete them. Install eCabinets and give it a try.

If the uninstall removes that directory completly, I'm all wet.

Re: Layers

Go to the link below and open the Control Nesting Manual. Go to page 93 and you'll find the layer names.

Hope this helps you out.

Re: cross section view

Thanks Forrest. That's what I ended up doing. Just thought the ability to use the cross section tool would be cool.

Re: cross section view

So I can't just take one cabinet to the LDE and get a cross section?

Thanks for the info.

cross section view

Can anyone explain why the Cross Section View options are grayed out? The help instructions are pretty clear. The cabinet is selected. The red line never appears.

Add the doors before putting the fixed shelf in. The only way I know how to do it.

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.

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.

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