Re: Nesting discrepancy

Two thoughts.... Why have an import/export function at all if there is no intended consistency with nesting from one computer to another? Why should having a difference of computetr give you different results of an application program? Unless their is a reasonable answer to the second question, my g...

Re: Nesting discrepancy

It would be interesting to hear from the Thermwood folks as they must have swapped around TWD files and noticed the discrepancies of the nesting between their computers during the development of the link program? I'd also hate to give up the printing of the ink jet printer in order to take advantage...

Re: Nesting discrepancy

Why would a control computer be giving better results? Does the program know or care about weather there's a USB cable connecting it to a machine? Basically, the question to my mind is that software is software correct? How would having a USB cable running to a machine give the program an advantage ...

Re: Nesting discrepancy

Thanks for the Response Tim, If you hadn't said it's happened to you as well I'd have thought it couldn't happen and the problem could be fixed. I look at the TWD file as a type of print file and no matter the brand of computer, the file would behave in the program the same. Sorta like 'that compute...

Nesting discrepancy

Hi All, I have an issue with the SB Link nesting between my design computer and control computer. I print out the nesting reports and labels from the design computer and save off the TWD file onto a flash stick. At the control computer, I copy the TWD file over and load it into the Link program and ...

Re: Assembly group parts

Hey Larry,

Finally got around to nesting those door/drawer fronts. The grouping of the parts worked great! Thanks for the fix.

Regards,
Tim

Re: Assembly group parts

Thought I'd follow up on this "Assembly Group Parts' problem. Attached is an assembly of upper cabinets whose doors will be getting cut out of the .76 Wenge material. The doors are highlighted in the 'Assembly Group Parts' panel to show that they have all been selected. for grouping in the nest...

Re: Assembly group parts

Gun shy with the Beta in 1.21.2 but I went ahead and tried it anyhow. Still not working correctly. Would you be able to try and confirm?
Missing door on a grouping. Will not nest. Better than previous Link version but still not nesting all the parts.....

Assembly group parts

Hello all, I've got several sheets of quarter sawn Wenge sheet stock that will be getting cut up for doors and drawer parts. The grain will be running horizontal on all the slab doors and drawers. As I want the grain to run as unbroken as possible thru the cabinets I've created assemblies and used t...

Re: Link nesting issue

Thanks Dave and Scott,

Are you cutting S curves and, if so, are you using a polyline such as a Bezier curve and then converting to arc/poly line tso it can be used in Ecabs?

Re: Link nesting issue

After talking with TW today it seems that I've been lucking with the curves and I really need to be using arcs for something like an S curve. It was suggested that I look and see if there is a feature that will convert a curve to arcs in my CAD program. Checked with my Cad program publisher and inde...

Re: Link nesting issue

So far it seems like bezier curves are getting messed up somehow, again. Still digging but the clunky arcs might be the only way out now. Have to put away the french curves and use circle templates. Yuck. Somethings shifted in Ecabs again with regard to imported DXF geometry. Finding more odd behavi...

Re: Link nesting issue

In attached link is the job cut out last year. With the exception of the signage and Plexi glass, all cutting was done thru Ecabs. Seed racks, Rack stands etc.... Now trying to cut additional cabinets and rerun current cabinets for a 10x20' space and were hitting landmines with respect to this dxf g...
