Re: V-Groove

I finally remembered how I accomplished this. In part editor create the tool path as one continuous line connected at the ends off the part. Control nesting will then see it as a single pass when MDF "interior pass" is checked and that tool selected.

Flycut routine request

Our new machine has the flycut routine which is great but we run 2 waste boards. I know we can get around it by going into settings and changing the waste board thickness back to what it was before but it would be better if there was a checkbox to cut a second waste board at the new setting.

V-Groove

It's been a while since I've done vgrooves and I can't remember if I've done them in ecabs and control nest before so I'm looking for a little input. I've set up the tool in tool manager and included it in the mdf doors interior tool area as well as the custom tool in profile modeling. It looks like...

Re: M61L8 being ignored

Thanks Clint, Daniel helped me sort it a little while ago. What's odd is the machine came with M61L8 set already. For whatever reason we didn't look at it during our test cut. I think we manually popped the pins up and didn't even notice they hadn't gone down.

M61L8 being ignored

Brand new CS43 for some reason ignoring the pop up and down pin command. There's 19 years between this machine and my C40 so not sure if I'm missing something or not. The commands are there but it skips right over them.

Re: What CAD software do you use to create DXF files for Control Nesting?

I'll look around to see if I can find an older version too. You might wanna check on Ebay too. Sometimes you can buy old copies for little to nothing. If not I'm not sure what newer software will work for you.

Re: What CAD software do you use to create DXF files for Control Nesting?

Hey David, hope you are doing well. Will V25 do what you need? I have a copy sitting on the shelf that I'll send you. It might even include 2 seats. I think Bobcad will transfer ownership for $100. Check with them and let me know.

Re: Windows update causing ecabs to see new version

Clint, this last update said it was a major change in windows 10 but something happened during the update and it said "a problem occurred would you like to find a solution" or something like that. I selected yes and it kept doing its thing. When I tried to open ecabs it didn't recognize my...

Windows update causing ecabs to see new version

This is the second time a windows update caused me to get a new code for ecabs. Anybody seeing this or know what is happening?

MDF shaker doors

Sure would be nice to have the ability to save part edited doors to a library so they can be changed out at a global level. I've only been asking for at least 10 years and seeing how quite a few others on here do that kind of door I would think it would be a higher priority.

Re: Make a MDF door with a flat "raise"

Stuart, I did figure out that my profile tool couldn't touch the bottom of the pocket. After that its a piece of cake.

Re: Pocket ramp in

I get this occasionally if the part is rotated. Not sure what the solution is though.

Re: Edgebanding not displaying

Thanks Clint, I used that method earlier and it worked fine on my end just wanted to make sure you guys were aware of what it was doing when using the add doors feature. When you take the front into CE the edgeband displays properly so you would think it would print on the label.

Edgebanding not displaying

I added slab fronts with edgebanding to a batch file but when nested the labels do not show the edgeband. Is this a glitch?
