Something set wrong??

Lately cabinets we have been building are extremely tight to assemble. My dado settings in Ecabs is set to "depth clearance .015 and fit clearance .020". In control nesting I have "cut through depth" set .035 just to get the bit to skim the wasteboard when cutting. We have the ne...

Re: Invalid arc error?

Problem solved, bit #1 is a 3/8" Vortex compression and this is the first time we used a bit that has been sharpened twice making the dia. .335 close to the hinge hole size so control nesting was selecting it instead of the normal 1/4" compression bit and that was throwing the error all we...

Invalid arc error?

Was cutting out a new job today and when it came time to rout out hinge holes the machine stopped with a "Invalid arc, check the dimensions again." error I have not changed hinge patterns in two years and I haven't changed anything with the 1/4" bit in the past month.

Part tabbing question.

When we cutout counter top buildup with the CS45 we usually let it skin the parts then finish them up with a hand router, how do we setup control nesting to tab them instead. They are usually 2 1/2" wide by up to 120" long, what determines tab spacing, length and thickness?

Re: Cutting a 45 angle in a nest

I don't know, we went through this when we first got the machine and it always tried to model the 45 with a compression bit doing it in 3 steps we could never get it to grab the 45 deg Amana bit, not to mention the extra part clearance you would need for this bit to get in and work. As often as we n...

Re: Cutting a 45 angle in a nest

I'm sorry, to answer your original question, we leave the parts square in Ecabs and put the 45 angle on with the fore mentioned program.

Re: Cutting a 45 angle in a nest

We wrote a small program at the controller and put the part at the flip op location and run a 45 deg bit on them.
