Drawer adjuster constraints question?

After updating to the latest version of ecabs it will no longer update the constraints I make after returning to the main screen. I noticed this when I do Blum head adjusters and handle holes in the part editor, they move into their proper position when constrained but it is not reflected when retur...

Re: Forcing bit use?

I gave up on it and made an Aspire file to cut them which allowed me to select the bit I needed by its #, it was slower because I had to cut them one at a time but it got the job done, thank you all for your suggestions!

Re: Forcing bit use?

The d0p551 was my attempt to force control nesting to use the 14mm or .551 diameter bit, but I will try removing it. The 14mm bit has a V shaped end that will work perfectly for countersinking the 5mm holes if it is used only 1/8" deep.

Re: Forcing bit use?

I tried shutting off interpolation for all the bits and it still interpolates the hole!

Forcing bit use?

I have a project making small rectangular HDPE adapter plates that has a 5mm mounting hole in each corner. I have a V shaped bit setup as a drill in bit holder 7 to come back and countersink each 5mm hole 1/8" deep. Control nesting is seeing my countersink Drill layer and keeps interpolating th...

Re: Signs from DXF

We use Aspire by Vectric which works very well with the router, you can import dxf's directly and apply a tool path and cut or import a photo and vectoriize, apply toolpaths and cut that way. Also does rotary and 3D work.

Re: CS45 problem (UPDATE)

Turns out our system RAM was failing, we tracked down the BIOS beep codes for the motherboard and that is what it was. We also purchased a spare harddrive and cloned the original THM drive and tucked it away.
As we all know with harddrives its not a matter of if it will happen, its when!

CS45 problem

Our Cs45 may be overheating, don't know for sure. The air conditioner isn't coming on till 84 degrees the screen has been going black and the motherboard is emitting a long tone pausing then emitting a long tone. After shutting down and letting everything cool down it will come back on.

Typewriter head problem.

Our #5 toolholder about every other tool change is dropping the tool when it retracts. The little rubber band is intact and where it should be is there something else to look for?

Re: cutting laminate

We cut laminate all the time, face down with a 3/16 down spiral so that the bit don't lift the laminate.

Re: DXF File Nest

rotate your DXF drawing 90 degrees in your cad program, save, and re-nest.
