Re: Bi-directional Single-Pass Tenon Cuts?

Thanks for checking that for me, Clint. What you have looks exactly like what we get from our 45. There is a ridge there, and on the assembled parts it leaves a small visible gap. If we could have the Single-Pass Tenon cut do a climb then conventional cut, that ridge (and resultant gap) would be to...

Re: Bi-directional Single-Pass Tenon Cuts?

Jeremy, Attached are pictures when I run your code for the part in your original picture. Picture 1 is the entrance, 2 is the gap between tenons, 3 the exit, and 4 is a shot down the edge. There is a lip I can barely catch my fingernail on, nothing near as bad as what you are seeing. It was cut on o...

Re: Bi-directional Single-Pass Tenon Cuts?

Also, for sake of asking, what is your dado depth in eCabinets? Does it vary or stay pretty consistent?

Re: Bi-directional Single-Pass Tenon Cuts?

Jeremy,

Thank you for the additional pictures. We currently have a demo going on, but if it ends at a reasonable time, I'm going to cut the part from your original picture and see if I get the same results. I'll post back as soon as I get on a machine.

Re: Bi-directional Single-Pass Tenon Cuts?

Jeremy, Got the files. As a note just to make sure we are on the same page, when a single pass tenon cut is done, there is a downward arc that is in the same location as where the outline cut will be made outside and within the tenon cut. So there is not really side load on the tool unless the botto...

Re: Bi-directional Single-Pass Tenon Cuts?

Hey Clint, By "the whole edge being cut on a single pass", are you referring to the Single-Pass Tenon? If so, the beginning of it looks just like the end that is shown in the picture, except it has the arc ramp-in. The entire length of the Single Pass Tenon cut is an arc, due to the machi...

Re: Bi-directional Single-Pass Tenon Cuts?

The addition of the ability to have the preliminary outline cuts as climb, with final pass conventional, was a real lifesaver and cut quality improvement. Would it be possible to implement the same strategy for the Single-Pass Tenon Cuts? As it is, they are done in a Conventional cut direction, and...

Re: What CAD software do you use to create DXF files for Control Nesting?

My reason for asking, as of version 6.12 your are able to designate alternative names for DXF layers. For example, instead of chaincompin, you can name it ccin. That will take you from 11 characters to four, hopefully getting you under the character limit. There is an option within the dialog to all...

Re: Feature Request

We already have the ability to rotate offal sheets. Am wondering if it would be possible to also add the ability to flip/mirror offal sheets in the Add Sheets window? Sometimes we need to flip a sheet over, which renders the saved offal of that sheet useless, and we need to enter it manually. I'll ...

Re: contour management / profile cut

Hi, I'm working on a fishbone patter consisting over 200 lines. Is there a way to either join the lines or select more than one line at a time in profile edge? It takes forever trying to set a tool for each individual line and the program keeps crashing all the time (and I lose all my work of cours...

Re: Crashing on save

Also, regardless of the type of video card, make sure the driver from the manufacturer is the latest. Generally Windows will not install the latest, only what the deem the most stable. You need to look to the manufacturer's site for the latest driver.

Re: What CAD software do you use to create DXF files for Control Nesting?

We run a lot of layered DXF files through control nesting. I've been using Bob-Cad V21 for many years and they won't sell me another copy for the new guy. We can't figure out how to get clean layer names out of Fusion 360. V-Carve Pro and BobCad V28 truncate DXF layer names at about 26 characters, ...

Re: pasted parts in CN

Stuart, I'll pass along your issues to the software engineers. To hopefully help in the mean time, you can control the view within Control Nesting in a similar fashion to eCabinets. Once you paste, you can press the home key and it will bring everything into view ( or at least close to, I'm getting ...

Re: Windows update causing ecabs to see new version

Forrest,

Were these larger Windows updates, say from Windows 7 to 10, and then a major change in Windows 10? I can see on our end something changed in your Windows Registry for what we reference for the registration codes. I don't know the exact reason it changed during the update.
