Re: standard outline cutter on MDF material

our Mel 16 Pbd HMR is a thickness of 16.25mm could the machine possibly think because the material loaded is also 16.25mm it puts it under the Mel 16 Pbd HMR? we have the Mel in a tooling group.

Re: standard outline cutter on MDF material

hi dale, thanks for the reply.

You can install it from the command line, however. Open a DOS window (click start, Run, then type CMD) and navigate to the directory with CN in...
