Re: Blind dado flip of not cutting correctly

Jesse, I am not familiar with your machine so I cannot offer much. I work with a ShopBot and I do a lot of flip ops. That does not mean that I haven't had problems. :lol: Some of the problems that I had were tooling size. I could cut with 1/4 inch but not 3/8. When I pocketed I had to change directi...

Re: Blind dado flip of not cutting correctly

Really hard to know where to begin until more info is provided. What machine are you using? How are you setup? what kind of hold down system do you have? Are you doing flip ops first or last? Maybe a picture of the machine. Are you using different tooling for different operations?

Re: Full Dado with Pilot Holes?

I use a modified kd pattern starting with the hafele model which is default. When I rename and save it the file type is applied by the software as it should be. I have attached a recent project that I did for a local business and used locked dados with my modified pattern. One other thing I will men...

Re: Is there an easy way to move walls?

Don If you first highlight the two walls you want to move then move the cursor to the end of the build side until you get the blue dot and click it. It should turn red. Move to the inside corner with the cursor and you should see another blue dot . Click that and it should turn red. Go to the far en...

Re: Some Part editor questions

Mark,

Could you "clarify" what part of the "hole" you are trying to constrain when your formula gets a random result and should I assume that the "hole" is circular in shape.

Daniel,
Thankyou for that explaination. It is not always obvious what is happening and sometimes the help menu may get overlooked.

Re: Some Part editor questions

Daniel, ANswer #1- Is pocketing a drill or a route, say for a KD/RTA fitting or a cup hinge? Once the type of marker is established can it then be constrained or can constraints not be applied to all markers as you have listed? Or are you suggesting that constraints would have to simply be reapplied...

Re: Some Part editor questions

Hi Mark, Still "ruminating" :( I tried several items out of the right menu to see if constraint manager worked with anything and I found that even when there were "legitimate" part editor cuts with legitimate constraints the program gives me the "mess"age part editor cu...

Re: Some Part editor questions

Here's another. I have been "ruminating" on the phrase "to save time". I actually did a search on the forum and you are the only one who used those three words in that order. Please"enlighten" if you care to :)

Re: Some Part editor questions

Do you have any idea how long it took me to come up with the word enlightenment. I must say I enjoyed your take on that, I will get out the dictionary before my next response see what else I can find.

Re: Some Part editor questions

Hi Mark, I did produce similar results to yours. I did a cut the same as yours on the left side of a base cabinet. I constained horizontal, vertical, and radius dimensions, then exited. When I returned all dimensions were gone. I went back and entered the constraints again and exited. when I returne...

Re: I've got a good challenge for the REALLY experienced eCab users here

Don,
I would like to take credit but you have me confused with Mark who did all the work. Good job Mark! My question was about what appears to be a dishwasher "D/W" left of the sink ?

Re: Flip Ops in SB Link

I will add one thing about doing flip operations, especially on whole sheets.If you want a precise fit, (without the use of a large hammer) it is ultimately important that your machine is set up extremely accurately. Your drill offsets have to be very precise, your gantry has to be extremely square....

Re: Flip Ops in SB Link

Nat, Are you using the latest copy of the link? It should be 1.23.1. Unless they introduced a new one when I wasn't watching :D Any time you have a flip operation to be done it will be highlighted in green on the sheet view of your nest. In the link settings go to nesting parameters. There is a sett...
