Re: Keep Item box open while in batch

Hi Scott, I'm referring to the little popup box when you select a cabinet that you enter quantities and sizes. Once you click Add, the box goes away. It would be nice if it just stayed open allowing you to change say the quantity and width over and over again. I figure they can add a check box to &q...

Keep Item box open while in batch

It would be of benefit sometimes while adding items in batch if we had a check box to keep the item box open after adding said item. If we had multiple sizes of the same item we wouldn't have to re-select. This would come in handy for me when adding dovetail drawers that are the same height and dept...

Re: edging info missing on labels!

Update your graphics card drivers. That happens sometimes after a windows update so maybe it'll fix your issues.

Re: Dust shroud/skirt alternatives

Also use a non-mortised tool so you have a longer upshear. With a 2 flute 3/8" comp tool turning 18k rpm you should be cutting at least 650ipm. This will make bigger chips that don't pack up as bad. You can also skin everything and then make a final pass. This will help remove all the dust but ...

Re: Breakaway head sensor?

Sometimes the plug on the front of the motor can get loose and cause it to do that. There is a little screw that holds it in place but doesn't necessarily keep it tight or from getting dust in it too.

Re: 6.1.2 upgrade and noticing a blind dado issue

John, can you post the cabinet so we can look at it? Also there is another update 6.1.3 available now that you may want to try first.

Re: control upgrade

Dave, my 2002 C40 does that now. If your not doing a lot of contour machining you won't see it. If you spiral into a cut you can see it moving all 3 axis at once.

Re: Shopbot Link

I don't know how to fix your problem Tim, but I'm wondering why you don't use the batch cabinet function to load your individual drawers?

Re: Double door reveals

Carmen, Thanks for catching that. It used to not function that way so I didn't even look at it this time. I'll ask the programmers about it.

Re: Double door reveals

Chris, after you add the doors click on (highlight) the one you want to change. Go into construction settings and make your change for the hinge side. Understand that if you ever delete the doors and add them back it will use this new setting for both sides.

Re: plywood not cleaning up on blind dado's

Set up a larger tool to do dados and you can even choose a single pass cut when it machines the tenons to thickness.
