using barcode scanner to perform functions

I am using a barcode scanner to scan off fall labels and I would like to be able to scan a code that opens up the EZ Off-Fall dialog box for the next input rather than have to go back to the keyboard. Is there a way to add shortcuts to functions within the program?

Shelf Pin Notches

I cut shelf pin notches on all my shelves. What you have to do is to insert a phantom adjustable shelf for the shelf holes and then add a fixed shelf with RTA joinery that is a simple notch. This works fine although it is tedious and you have to delete all the fixed shelves if you need to change the...

Re: drawer box losing RTA fittings

Hi Ralph. thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, these drawers were done in the drawer designer and saved to my drawers with the rafix fittings baked in. there is no reason that they should disappear and in fact, the pre-drilled screw hole which is another RTA fastener I the same drawer is not lost, o...

drawer box losing RTA fittings

My drawer boxes are losing their rafix fittings every time I change something in the construction settings. I have to insert them again via Adj Features/Drawer Boxes with Drawer Fronts. This was happening before the update to 6.2.4 and still now. Has anyone else found this to be a problem? Is there ...

Re: Cordless barcode readers

thanks, Jeremy. I appreciate your input. I don't see how it could either but I was warned by my tech that the signals can interfere with the controller. I'm just looking for a way to improve the off-fall label scanning process and scanning away from the machine would be a bonus.

Cordless barcode readers

I heard that Thermwood CNCs are allergic to anything that is cordless because of potential interference with the electronics. Is this still the case? If yes, would a USB hub with extended cable to the machine solve this problem? If not,is there a reason that a 15 foot usb extension not work with the...

Re: CAB # in nested diagrams

it would be great if we could change the B to another letter, the perfect example would be to help distinguish between B=Base and U=Upper and P=panel etc... It would also be great if we could have more control over the number as when you want to skip a number or start a different room at a different...

lock dado with single kd/rta not in center of small parts

Has anyone found a way that you can use lock dado in a small part (4" stretcher) and use a single kd/rta fastener that is not centered so that the blind dado can take up the rest of the edge?

I tried centering my second kd/rta with a negative dimension but it still shows up off the edge.

thanks

joinery between 2 cabinets in an assembly

notched shelf for hiding the shelf pins

Is there any way to create a notch in the shelf that would hide the shelf pins like in the picture attached? I hate doing this in part editor and i suspect that there must be a better way.
thanks for your help

Jason, we've talked about this before and i can see that i'm not the only one who would like this. it wouldn't be very hard to do and it would set you apart from all your competitors. just imagin...
