CNC Cutting Out of Square

I have a 3-Axis Thermwood Model 45, and it seems to be cutting out of square, the parts cutting like a parallelogram. What would cause this, and what's the solution to correct this?

5/8" Dado Nesting as a 1/4"?

Can someone help me with this? I have 5/8 material everywhere, but the top and deck are nested with a 1/4" Dado for the left end. I've checked all my settings and can't find if it's something I'm missing. This is a test cabinet, but this issue is showing up in a batched job I have to cut. Help?

Re: Dado Width Off?

The bit is actually .480, and that's the diameter value I have in the tool setting. Is there another value you're looking for?

Error 1500

It appears that the sensor is not lining up completely with the line on the bracket, disallowing it to find "Home". How can this be solved?

Re: Dado Width Off?

5/8 Dado width is .645. My 5/8 material is .597, which I was aware of. The 1/2" bit I used was a Vortex 3189, a 1/4" up-cut compression bit. I don't understand the CLIMB vs CONVENTIONAL question. I did offest for the material thickness, and even tried to do a negative fit clearance to elim...

Dado Width Off?

I've set my full dado to a 5/8" material with 0" fit clearance. Why is my Thermwood cutting a dado wider than 5/8"? I've checked my tool settings and they are accurate, using a 1/2" cutter with a .5 diameter setting in the tool settings. I can understand the extra clearance if my...

Sheet Material at Odd Thickness

I have a Euro job calling for .75 Melamine. Actual thickness of material is .769. How should I approach the extra thickness? Should I build it into the joinery clearance, or should I create a sheet material with this thickness and work with that? Only problem there is that it create god-awful number...

Batching for Matched Grain

I need to be able to batch doors and drawer fronts together per cabinet to get a matched grain. Can I manipulate the batching order to achieve this?
