Re: tenon % thickness VS. TWD thickness

Thanks Josh, Yes it does. Good insights. I've just finished measuring my parts and recorded them on the report sheets. Also recorded maximum deviation within a part from what it was supposed to be. After a few of these reports getting labeled up I did a comparison of the reports and found that the p...

Re: tenon % thickness VS. TWD thickness

With regard to warnings about the tenon being to big for the panel thickness idea, Isn't that what's happening with kd/rta placements and tenon insets already? It would be consistent with the rest of the program. Trying to audit my parts has been made more difficult with this % feature as it throws ...

Re: tenon % thickness VS. TWD thickness

Thanks Scott, That clears up what I should be comparing what with. Would this be any easier if the tenon thickness was a fixed value in the construction settings? What would be given up going from a % to a fixed value? I guess I'm still wondering what the benefits are with having the tenon thickness...

Re: tenon % thickness VS. TWD thickness

Thanks Josh, Yeah, your right about all the variables that can creep into the milling. This is what were examining right now in order to get more reliable results. I can measure my parts/cutting bits but I need to know what the resulting parts dimensions are supposed to be. Is it the nest dimensions...

Re: tenon % thickness VS. TWD thickness

Hi Josh, Thanks for responding. If I set my fit tolerance to 0" and still get loose joints then I need to start measuring parts and find out where the problem is. Is the dado to wide (perhaps a problem with the diameter of bit) or maybe my z plunge is to much (creating an undersized tenon)? Sho...

tenon % thickness VS. TWD thickness

Can someone tell me if the material thickness change at the TWD affects the thickness of the tenon, being a % of material thickness? If it does then I assume all the dimensions in the nest, as they relate to dado's and tenon dimensions, will be wrong since the TWD thickness change occurs down stream...

Re: Drawer Box Pains... Suggestion

Yeah,

I would agree with that suggestion as I'm outsourcing most of my drawers now. That would be a huge help.

Edgebanding

Has anyone been able to get edge banding on their drawer boxes in the program? I'll normally build a cabinet as a drawer box to get the edgebanding ability and use a drawer box, made of a phony don't run material, to be installed in the cabinet to get the slide holes. Just wondered if there was a qu...

Re: RTA Hardware Association Issues

Scott, I have been banging away at this RTA construction setting for a coupla days now and question why any one wants to split the hole association from the hardware. The idea of being able to make our own hardware with hole association was always needed. In previous versions we had to take a never ...

Re: Now that the dust has settled, How do you like V6?

Hi Kerry, Yes indeed, material thickness is not what it used to be. We've used the closest material thickness to what we get from suppliers in our sheet stock materials library that we design with. Learned that thru hard knocks. With regard to the tenon thickness, wouldn't that be determined ny the ...

Re: Now that the dust has settled, How do you like V6?

It would be nice and IMHO best ROI if Thermwood would redesign the GUI so that it would look more cohesive between all the various windows and panels and make more visual sense. Right now it looks like a bunch of different groups designed it and Thermwood smushed em all together in one package. It w...

Re: RTA Hardware Association Issues

Also, What the heck is the point of the first page of the KD/RTA menu? Why does it allow you to select hardware and hole patterns here as though it might actually apply your choices to the cabinet parts via left mouse click/construction settings? This first page seems to do nothing. What am I missin...

Re: RTA Hardware Association Issues

Whoops, I figured it out. You need to have the KD/RTA selected in the left mouse click "construction settings". Then go to the right hand fly out menu. Select KD/RTA. Hit the teeny icon. Select the RTA. Select the hole pattern for the RTA, much like the edgebanding editor. Hit apply. :shoc...

Re: RTA Hardware Association Issues

Ohhhh......, Yeah, that did it. Glad to see were still able to designate edges with various KD/RTA hardware. I'm still baffled, though. What is the purpose of the KD/RTA image and hole pattern on the first page of the fly out menu? It looks like the only way to get the RTA's and their associated hol...

RTA Hardware Association Issues

Hi All, As were trying to wrap our head around 6.4 there seems to be a problem with getting our ptn. files associated with our RTA hardware. In the past we were drilling screw pilot holes for our case construction by associating a 1/8 hole .765" deep to a piece of never used hardware that had t...
