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.

Re: Custom Layout

I would fifth this request, but it already got the attention of those on the ecabinets thrones, so I maintain silence :wink:

Re: Roughing feature not working for me

Clint,
It's using Group 11 for the parts I was cutting. Roughing should be enabled with a 2mm cleanup pass. File attached below, cutting the 38mm Gen SOLID WOOD. I was using tool 511 as the roughing tool, no boxes checked.

Roughing feature not working for me

Greetings all! Just wondering if someone can point me in the right direction. I tried the roughing feature for the first time today, and it didn't work as expected. The roughing pass automatically created large radiuses on the corners of the part, and the final outline pass didn't touch the part at ...

Re: Restart halfway through a sheet

Forrest, I tried doing that, but I must have done something wrong, since it went off and started cutting outside my wasteboard area. Seems like somewhere along the way it must have missed a line of code. This approach would probably work better for someone that knew how to read code. I got it to ski...

Restart halfway through a sheet

Greetings all! I was just wondering if there's any way to resume cutting from any given point in a sheet. For example, we were cutting a sheet that takes roughly half an hour, and I was going to watch some of the tutorial videos that are saved on the machine, and the computer crashed and shut down j...

Re: THM not starting

Yes we are connected to a network... I've never thought about that possibility. my theory was that the computer is slowing down as it gets older, and startup procedures are taking longer. Last year THM kept giving me error messages that the intime kernel wasn't running, so I set up a 30 second delay...

Re: THM not starting

Update...
so far, the "fix" seems to be working for us. I started the machine this morning, waited a few extra minutes before starting THM, and it came up no problem.

Re: THM not starting

I'll try that next time I shut down the machine. No antivirus software installed recently. We've installed MS Office 365 for document sharing between the office and the shop, an instant messaging app for shop communication, Chrome remote desktop so when main operator goes on vacation he can still re...
