Re: Head out of alignment

Well I just got through the process again, and tightened everything up a bit more than i usually would. The head is zeroed and I think it will stay that way unless there is a pretty severe spin out. Next time I'll take the plate off and check those t-bolts. Thanks Clint

Head out of alignment

OK, some moths ago I did something stupid. I left a small piece of melamine on the table while doing a flycut, it wasn't a total disaster or anything but it did put the head out of alignment. After a call to Thermwood I got it fixed by loosening the 4 allen head bolts and adjusting the head back to ...

Re: Write CNC stalls

So how does this work with the desktop version, I nest the job on my office PC and then just load that file onto the CNC? How about adding offalls and such?

Write CNC stalls

Hi Guys, just putting this out there for some general feedback. Our write CNC has been stalling(crashing) on almost every job lately. Our batches are generally about 20 - 30 sheets and typically all white melamine with maybe 2 sheets of some veneered pieces. We are running a CS-43 with windows XP. I...

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?

Re: part editor closed contor, line info

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...

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 ...
