Re: Shape manager retard

Dan, I sit in the juices of my unworthiness to come and ask you e-cab questions! O.K. I just figured it out. The first "one sided" tool bit that I attempted after your instructions were cutting just the 1/64", to the left of 0,0, off my part ( in my defense, I stated that I was a shap...

Re: Shape manager retard

Dan, I went ahead and re drew the right hand side of the "v" bit and started the tip at -1/64,0. I then drew the right side 13/16+1/64,1/8. Depth was set at -1/8". The result was a 1/64 wide, 1/8" deep rabbit at the top of the leg going all the way around. This occurred if the ch...

Re: Shape manager retard

Re: Shape manager retard

Dan, Can you get the same results with a board stock that's just 1/8" thick by the 1 5/8 x 1 5/8 square dimensions? Reason being that if I creat a material that has the desired length of the leg as a thickness of material, then the grain runs the wrong way. If the pyramis shapes, themselves, co...

Re: Shape manager retard

Holy Moly, Thanks Dan, I'll try to reproduce the steps you outlined and post the result. Noticed how fast you were able to do that and it tells me I have to get into the modeling parts of the program more. I appreciate your help on this. I read older post in the forum regarding tool profiles. It alm...

Re: Shape manager retard

O.K. This may be a stupid question but here goes..... I'm selling a client on a mission style bookcase that will be modular in nature and quick to build. One thing I'm trying to do is create the type of verticle legs (1 5/8 x1 5/8"x 50"L) that are about .25" proud of the cabinet top a...

Re: The Future of eCabinet Systems

I outsource all my panel milling and edgebanding to a thermwood shop and this visual reference to aid in assembly will come as a great help and timesaver. That and to sift out my parts without having to read the labels anymore, by spotting the color intsead, will be fantastic. I love the idea of usi...
