Re: Machining 2 3/4'' thick solid oak

I've done a fair amount of that type cutting and have best results with a 3 flute rougher hogger upshear purchased from Carolina Specialty Tool $275. By a shorter one if you can with less cutting edge. Set the tool as far into the collet without the fluting touching. I usually leave mine an 1/8"...

Re: outline breaks mortise shoulder for blind tenon

It would help tremendously if the dado stopped short of the back edge.

Re: Tooling of part editor cuts

I had issues years ago and was told it looked for the best tool starting from #1. Putting it first in line helped. My understanding is it's supposed to look for the largest pocketing tool available but I never strayed from making sure it was first in line too.

Re: Tooling of part editor cuts

I set up the same tool# as my outline tool as only pocket box checked and make sure its before all other pocketing tools.

Re: E cabinets has stopped working

As a second note, it will not use more than 3gb of ram because it's a 32bit program. Still, you have a very capable computer.

I would suggest checking for a video card update first. Also, if its crashing going from LDE to CL I would save it while still in LDE.

Re: cross section view

Hi David, you can take a single cabinet into LDE and rotate it 90 degrees. You can even select a side and hide it so as to see the internals.

Hope that helps, Forrest

Maybe something to do with the ramp in settings?

Re: Keeping printer setup

Hi Carmen, it would be nice if the printer setup is in the drop down menu on every sheet since on any given job there may be multiple setups.

Re: Can't have 2 faceframe thickness materials?

Leo, short answer is no. I've wanted that ability for a while. Also if we can lock a display part to the spot we align it to that would be a huge help when resizing.

Re: Write CNC stalls

What Jeremy said. I'm still running Windows 2k and slow nesting its one of the reasons we asked Thermwood to make a desktop version. The other reason is you can nest and write code from anywhere and or while your machine is running. Its well worth the money!

Re: Resized Tall Cabinet Elevated off of Floor

Nat, if you only want to resize it while in elevation view highlight the cabinet, right click and select "adjust cabinet features, resize equalize".
From there you can choose to move the top or bottom.

Re: Trouble cutting cabinet parts

Alec, it sounds like you're doing the flip-op first cuts. You will need the machine set up properly in order to flip them accurately. If you want to do them afterwards you can turn them off using the flip ops first tab.

Re: Profile modeler

Hi David, I'm pretty sure it always starts at the top of the profile and works its way down but there are some other factors too like tool direction. If its a single door can you do a climb pass around the outside first to remove that extra material?

Re: Dovetail drawer depth not resizing properly

Thanks Clint, its weird that it happens after every beta test and not during. I looked back at my emails to Thermwood and found 3 other instances over the years where I have reported it, only the size differences were more dramatic then this time for me. This only happens when I resize the depth. I'...
