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'...

Re: Dovetail drawer depth not resizing properly

Follow up. I opened the job today to change one of the drawer sizes. I took the drawer from batch into cabinet editor and notice the depth was still off. However, when I change the width the depth corrected. I also tried just opening construction settings and clicking, it okay also fixed the depth. ...

Dovetail drawer depth not resizing properly

This happens after every beta test. My dovetail drawer depth doesn't resize properly. This drawer is loaded into a cabinet with no parts and no insets so the cabinet size is the actual size of the drawer. When I resize it from 21" deep to 21.125" and hover over the drawer it says it's actu...

Re: Part Editor Cuts

Tom, make sure the profile is closed. Extend and cut all your line ends again or use the select chain option to find the break.

Re: Edge Pull placement

I was able to add some manually by way of Hardware Objects. Not the ideal way but with some extra work it got the job done.

Thanks, Forrest

Edge Pull placement

Does anyone have an edge pull similar to Hafele HF12402310 that will place on the door properly? The supplied one sits on the surface instead of behind the edge.

Re: Resizing Display Boards

To bad they can't be scaled like a display object. I would also like to see an option to lock them to a specific location (post on the corners) so when the cabinet is resized they move with it.

Re: THM Desktop on 10 year old machine

It absolutely saves processing time. I have a 15 year old controller that runs code fine but gets bogged down when trying to nest large jobs. Plus you can process the next job while you're running a job. The other issue I started running into is finding printer drivers for new printers that work wit...

Re: THM Desktop on 10 year old machine

Hi David, I don't use the sync for various reasons. What I do is make all my tooling the max size at the desktop version. IE: the 3/8" compression for the outline tool is always set at .375". It can be whatever size under that it needs to be at the controller and offsets will compensate fo...

Re: Nesting discrepancy

Its always differed for me too. I think there are more factors involved when nesting in the control software like bit size with added clearance and however it handles spacing for secondary operations like tenons and dovetails. If you're doing flip ops first too it considers that on the edge of the s...

Left Front cabinet dim is 315mm - 3mm left reveal= 312mm- 18mm right door thickness= 294mm- 2mm for the door t...

Re: Corner door sizes

Rachel, I assume you're in beta? Moderators might wanna move this to the beta forum so you can get help. Only beta users can open the file so I'll take a look while I'm here to see if I can figure out whats going on.

Re: Frameless cabinet drawer slide installation

While in cabinet editor click the "Drawer Slides" tab and under the drawer slide selection there is a "Hole Pattern" drop down. Select "clear default" and it will remove it from the cabinet.
