CN - Added sheet - label orientation problem

Parts nested on added sheets are rotated 180 degrees when compared to parts cut from full sheets. When labels are applied to the parts using the standard operator orientation, the labels are upside down. This creates problems and dumpster food when the parts have flip operations or the label has edg...

Scrap Part Recovery and Profile modeling

Any chance we could get Scrap part recovery to recognize profile modeling?

Right now, profile modeling is ignored if you select scrap part recovery.

Re: DRAWER BOX ERROR

Same problem here.

According to the ecabs nest (and a sheet of drawer parts on its way to the dumpster)

It appears that when you change the tenons to greater than 50% thickness, the dados change in width, but most of the tenons remain at 50%.

50% thickness seems like it would work.

Profile Modeler part identification and other issues.

So I have some MDF doors to model and the design requires two different tool groups. Since the doors have boring on them, I decided to change the doors to slab doors, and let CN nest and bore them. Now with the "blanks" cut and bored, I can run them through profile modeler and skip the per...

Re: Door DEsign

Georgi, That's a very creative solution. Just one idea... You could try putting the mahogany pieces in the actual cabinet as stretchers with a negative front inset so they protrude through the door's panel, almost to the door's face. Then use a real door on the cabinet without the strips. Lock the s...

Re: Help with machining a display panel

As you have discovered, CN does not recognize islands. I would do this using a DXF file, creating at least two pockets (one "U" shaped pocket for three sides, and the second pocket for the 4th side) making sure the pockets don't share any verticies with each other, or the part outline. If ...

Re: Thermwood and circle top.

Perhaps I should have been more specific.

Two arcs, each 180 degrees with the same radius and same center point arranged such that they create a closed circle.

Like the one attached.

Re: Thermwood and circle top.

Try breaking the circle into at least two arcs. Circles are assumed to be for drilling only, therefore CN doesn't see anything on the outline layer.

Re: Frame flush to inside

I'd like to suggest taking it one step further. Well... perhaps more than one step. There are many times when the size (width, length, and material thickness) of one part determines the position, inset, offset, scribe, etc used in construction settings and other places in the program. Instead of onl...

Nick,
Another idea, perhaps much better if it works, with the job loaded in CN, try to \"Add sheet\" and change the added sheet's grain direction to \"Y\"

Brain, Two possibilites come to mind. 1. You must \"Vectorize Text\" in Bobcad, to convert the text to lines/arcs before saving the DXF. The part editor only recognizes lines and arcs from the DXF file. 2. Be aware of the position of the converted text in relationship to 0,0. The part edit...

Nick, You can use a grained material, then in eCabinets, use the construction settings for the DBX to change the \"Grain direction angle\" to 90 for each part. The grain will appear to be running the wrong direction in eCabs, but since you're using a material with the grain running in the ...
