Manual nesting offals

Here's something that crops up quite often when I'm using manual nesting to move parts around. In the attached example, I've moved a few of the smaller parts to give them some additional part clearance to ensure that they don't move during cutting. For some reason, offal shapes get calculated differ...

Re: What methods do you use to hold down small parts?

Our favorite method is to use additional part clearance, and leave a skin before final outline, although I plead guilty to adhesive and nails as well. But hands? Really?? Not sure I have the guts to hold down a small part by hand with a router bit spinning at 20000RPM within a few inches of my hand.

Ramp-in location

Greetings all! Is there any way to change how the machine does ramp-ins? Currently the bit starts at a corner of the piece, then ramps in, cuts the outline, then finishes the outline up to the end of the rampin. This means that the bit gets pulled out of the material partially along an edge, leaving...

Re: Modelling partially broken?

I can confirm this morning that it is the latest update to Profile Modeler that has caused the issue for us. I rolled back to v2.6, and the model turns out perfect.

Modelling partially broken?

Greetings all. Please see attached pictures. We're trying to model a 45 degree bevel on the inside of a door panel, which used to work just fine. But the exact same model that used to work is now not giving us the results we want. Seems like the ballnose bit doesn't finish the job properly, leaving ...

End of Support for Win7

Greetings all!
With reference to the upcoming deadline from Microsoft, ending support for Windows 7, I was wondering if there will be any negative impact on our Thermwood machine running Win7?

Re: using barcode scanner to perform functions

There doesn't seem to be a keyboard shortcut currently for opening the EZ-Offal dialog. So, if you wanted to get fancy, you could download a program like Auto Clicker and program a keyboard shortcut to automatically move the mouse to a specific location on the screen and click. Then once you've done...

Single Tool Pass Doesn't Obey Max Penetration Settings

Hello again! I would like to be able to run a single tool pass that obeys the max penetration settings that are set for that tool in profile modeler. Right now, to achieve this, we need to do an enclosed path that runs all the way around the part, so it ramps down and obeys the max penetration. This...

CN 6.15 Broke Modelling

Greetings all!
Heads up, Control Nesting 6.15 broke something. I was trying to nest an mdf door with four modeled regions, and all four regions gave me an error. I rolled back to version 6.14, and everything worked fine.
