Manual Nesting issues, etc...

Greetings all! I'm not sure when this issue first started, since I skipped several versions of Control Nesting. I installed v6.07 a few days ago. This morning I tried several times to manually move parts around in the nest, but when I pressed Alt+F11 to apply the nest, the program quit responding. A...

Re: Profile Modeler crashes THM when viewing parts

Sorry I forgot to mention that Clint helped me resolve this issue. Turns out that the culprit was our graphics card driver. After updating the driver, we have no longer had this problem.
Thanks a lot Clint!

Re: Trouble cutting cabinet parts

Have you checked your Control Nesting settings? Maybe outline cuts are disabled.

Re: Locking cabinet menu

Not sure if I'm understanding you correctly, but if you mean what I think you mean, look for the thumb tack icon and click to lock the sidebar in place.

Re: Close call today, CNC fire

My biggest fear is a spark getting into dust collector pipes. Especially if its a central dust collection system. Not only will the collector need repair, but you could also potentially be dealing with smoke damage throughout the entire shop... and water damage from the ensuing efforts to douse the...

Office 2010 Compatibility

Greetings all. Just wondering if there are any plans to make control nesting compatible with Excel files saved in Office 2010. The new file extensions are .xlsx, but importing an excel file into control nesting is currently limited to the old .xls files. We've developed a system in excel for our 5-p...

Re: How to get version 6.2

Will the download from the link above make me install the new version of ecab? Not in my experience. I've updated ecabinets several times by downloading from their website, and I never lost anything yet. This is the exact quote from their website: (Note: This is the full version of eCabinet Systems...

Re: Profile Modeler crashes THM when viewing parts

Does THM give you and option to send in a crash report or does it go to the Windows version of the software is crashing? THM gives us the option to send crash reports, which I have done twice. Also what version of THM are you on? 10.1.1.0 Can you post an export of a job that does it as well as the ...

Re: door not getting profilfed randomly

When did you notice the issue? The sooner we know there is an issue, the sooner we can correct it.


Noticed this issue the first time we attempted modeling doors after the latest control nesting update

Re: How to get version 6.2

I've noticed that sometimes too, where the program itself doesn't seem to know about updates being available.
You can download the update directly from this link:

Re: door not getting profilfed randomly

Thomas, We had the same problem, where doors were randomly not getting profiled. Are you using the latest version of Control Nesting? If so, TADA! Found your problem. Seems like Thermwood messed up something in that update. We rolled back to the previous version, and problem was solved. To roll back...

Profile Modeler crashes THM when viewing parts

Greetings all! After one of the more recent QCore software updates (not sure exactly which one), I started to have this problem. When I want to view a modeled part in Profile Modeler, it crashes the entire THM application every time, without fail. I can open the file that contains the parts, but whe...

Re: rotated part on nest not cutting like layout shown

Same problem here, although in my case the model always stays put exactly where Control Nesting originally nested it. If I move or rotate the part, the model stays behind, everything else moves.

Re: Ramp for pockets

We also use a flycutter type tool for pocketing on mdf shaker style doors, and we were able to lengthen the tool's ramp-in length by changing the rout/dado length setting

Below are our tooling settings for the pocketing tool.
