Re: DXF Pocket problem

To create a pocket, it needs to be a polyline. When you draw a circle in autocad (at least) it is not a polyline. You need to use pedit (in autocad) to convert that circle into a polyline.
CN will treat all circles as a drill operation only.

CN cabinet order listing

Wondering why when I load an Ecab job in CN, the assigned B# of the cabinets are not in numerical order. They are all over the place. Used to be in order at some point but changed with CN updates which one I don't know. Is it a setting that I changed at one point, I don't know, all I know it is very...

Re: Off fall labels

Guys... Workaround: Nest with off falls on and print labels. Turn off the off falls cut feature. Cut as normal. You have labels, you have no off fall trim. Life is good. Sorry Gary (thanks for the tip), life is not good. Just one more work around to do! I have enough issues with the amount of time ...

Re: First trial (and issues) with Profile Modeller

Daniel, Guess that logic is right, tool would be cutting in board, but it is not. It's roughly 1/4" past. Tools are setup ok, cause I cut from CN with no issues. Will Try again later this morning to double check or replicate the problem on a different profiled piece. Currently have a couple rus...

First trial (and issues) with Profile Modeller

Ok, so I have done in the past a few modelled run thru CN without any major issues. Figured out the difference between custom and profiled job in the PM setting, realized the limitation with PM and CN, and this bring us to my current problem. I have no problems running a part thru CN, but if I try t...

Re: Tooling error

Josh,
The way I understand it, ih that you cannot rout a blind dado in one pass, so the cutter diameter is to close to the dado, if rour tool was sharpen and be at 0.237 or under it would cut ok.

Easy fix, increase your tenon at 55%
