Controlling the Ramp-in Location

Greetings all! Does anyone here know if it's possible to control where the machine ramps in on an outline cut? For example, when we're cutting finished gables out of MDF, and it ramps in on the front edge of the part, it leaves a little "dig" where the tool pulls back out after the outline...

Request... again!

Sorry, it's me again, with another feature request. Some materials we cut tend to chip out easier when cutting across the grain, such as some oak veneers, or even solid wood. Would be fantastic to have an option similar to the one that already exists in the settings dialog, "% Full Feed for Thr...

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.

Re: spoil sheet support for a MTR Thermwood

Instead of investing in a push-off bar, try building a table the same height as the CNC table. Then just use two waste boards. As soon as one sheet is done cutting, push the whole wasteboard off onto the neighboring table, then place the second wasteboard onto the machine and keep cutting while you'...

Re: Default Flycut Values

Thanks Clint. I know we're a little odd cause we use metric by default in our shop, so I would like to get a nice round number for the flycut, like 0.3mm instead of 0.254mm.

Default Flycut Values

I was just wondering if there is a way to change the default amount that gets removed from the wasteboard during a flycut?

Re: Profile modeler

Maybe it has to do with the profile touching the bottom of the pocket

Maybe you could try drawing the model so it stops .2mm off the bottom of the pocket, then just add .2mm to the daylight value of the modelling tool at the machine.

Sheet Yield affected by voids

Greetings again.
Just a heads up: sheet yield numbers become inaccurate when adding a voided area on a sheet, as shown in example below

Re: Program Timer Idea

That's fantastic, thanks Clint! Is there any way to change the feed rate that is used to calculate the sheet times in this report?

Program Timer Idea

Greetings all! I had an idea on how the program timer could be developed further... I would love to be able to request an estimated run time for a particular sheet in a job. Right now it's giving me the total run time for the entire job. Often, when we're running complex modelled doors, we do those ...
