Locking cabinet menu

Is it possible to lock the sidebar cabinet menu, I like it in thumbnail view with the menu partition dragged over so i can see all the cabinets. everytime i change folders, or even select a cabinet it resets the view.

thoughts?

Close call today, CNC fire

Ok, I was cutting some 3/4 euro ply today(the really densely layered stuff). I was cutting 30 inch circles with a 1/4 inch hole in the center. The entire cut took less than 2 minutes. When the CNC machine drilled the 1/4 inch hole the combination of the friction and the pumps drawing air through the...

Surfacing tool getting caught on tool holder.

Surfacing tool getting caught on tool holder.

Been happening more and more. The blades on my surfacing tool keep hitting the positive stop sleeve and knocking the blades out of alignment, leading to an uneven surface...has anyone else had a similar issue?

part editor closed contor, line info

The line information has gone from the closed contour in the part editor? So if you draw a line and hover on it it used to give you the coordinates and the line length. Very handy for checking opening sizes. Seems to be gone now, is that right?

I've got a 5mm hole that is placed 1/2 an inch from the left(and right) of the edge of the drawer box, I'm trying to develop a constraint that will drill the hole in the horizontal center so no matter the he...

diagonal bottle rack

Not sure if this is the right

Has anyone made a simple diagonal X shaped bottle rack that can be easily modded to fit into different size cabinets?

help with some files

I got an email today regarding making some custom parts on my CS43, It was pretty vague but I think they want them cut from 3/4 plywood. They were kind enough to send me a dwg and dxf but of course they didn't work because there was no thickness. Can some one take a look at these and help me out. I ...

New HD issues

After having some mysterious problems with the HD on my CS43 I ended up having it ghosted and replaced with a SSD, very happy with the solid state, nesting is much faster. Somewhere along the line with all the testing of the old and new drives my CPU clock somehow reset and has thrown off my maitenc...

Re: 7 years on...

I'm about 6 years in with my CS 43, we avoided flip-ops because of troubles lining them up, finally this year I called support and asked for help. The tech patiently explained how to find the true corner of the material on the bed, after a few test runs and tweaking that number I was finally able to...

dxf, letters, and signs

Hi guys, I Had a request for a sign to be made for the town I live in. Its definatly out of my norm and really have no idea how to proceed. I have the file in DXF but of course the thickness is an issue, but i'm sure there must be an easy way to convert or modify the dxf so it will cut on the machin...
