Re: Trouble cutting cabinet parts

I agree that in an ideal world I would not have to do any flip operations. Is it possible to set up blind dado joinery without flip operations? This particular cabinet I showed is a frameless 4 drawer cabinet with blind dados on the sides, top, and bottom, with a fully inset back. Alec The back is ...

Re: Wish list

You can add job items with cost - also you can add items to a cabinet -

hover over right side, select Job Buy List, or Cabinet Buy List, you may have to scroll to the bottom and / or scroll to the right to see Add Items to Job or Add Items To Assembly.

Not sure about hinge

Re: Trouble cutting cabinet parts

It would be helpful to know what machine you are running or is this through the shopbot link?
Looking at your nest it may be ready for the flip opp to cut the back side dado then cut the out line, do you get any messages?

Re: adj shelf height compartment not individually highlighting

Instead of using your no cut wood, just use regular shelves then when you have them all set turn the shelves in phantom parts and they wont cut. you can change them back if you need to see them.

Re: adj shelf height compartment not individually highlighting

If I zoom in tight on a shelf I can select it and delete it, I deleted all shelves and can add shelves but after adding a couple the problem comes back. I tried with a standard frame-less cabinet and it works fine, not sure why your cabinet is corrupt? Do you have more cabinets that act the same way...

Re: Suggestions on how to drill three sets of shelf pin holes

Is there a reason you cannot use shelf pin holes? You can mark the shelves as Phantom parts and they wont cut.

Re: Close call today, CNC fire

Had it happen to me also, while cutting regular plywood a small part came loose, it rode the bit up and stayed with it while trying to cut the next part. It didn't take long and we had a 2 inch hole burning embers. Had a bottle of water near by, shut everything down and put it out. Can't leave those...

Re: Problem with Shopbot Link and Write to Shopbot

Don, It is trying to use a tool for an operation that is to large. Not sure what you are nesting but could be drilling holes, cutting dado's or outline. I would try to nest one or a few cabinets at a time to narrow it down to a cabinet that is causing the error, then look at my construction of that ...

Re: Duplicating cabinets for better nesting.

If you save the three cabinet and the bench as an assembly you can put the assembly in the room seven times and it will nest them together, you dont have to lay them out neatly or anything. I have a small project that I make a bunch at once and i just put 35 in the room and then nest them together. ...

Hard to teach someone in the shop. Not sure how you will teach them remotely. Ecabs video training will help some and would be worth the money.

You can use a special material for your doors and set special labor pricing up for that material.
