Re: control upgrade

Dave, not to take anything away from the new controllers but a much cheaper and some may argue better option is to get the desktop version of control nesting. I think it still cost around $1k and has a small annual maintenance fee. That way you can nest other jobs while your router is running too. F...

Re: System Crashes in Door/Drawer Editor

Travis, try taking the cabinet into faceframe editor. It will remove the doors and add frames. After that go back to the main screen and turn the frames off. This might allow you to go into the door editor and reselect new fronts.

Re: Line Drawing Editor MAJOR PROBLEM

Thomas, see if your graphics card is up to date. Also, if you can zip your job file and post it so we can use it to try and get the same results. If you don't want it on the public forum you can email it to me through my user info.

Re: Line Drawing Editor MAJOR PROBLEM

I'm not sure I understand your workflow but I'm not seeing an issue. Are you trying to only use jpg's for a reason? If you print to pdf or make a jpeg and attach it to an email it works without issue on my end.

Re: Machining 12' sheets on 8' router

Really depends on a few things. What software are you using? Is it a moving gantry? Are there any tool holders at the end of the table?

Re: Hardware hole pattern library - such a thing?

On a side note, all of the standard patterns included in the software are 3mm deep. You will have to edit whichever ones you intend on using.

Re: Radius Compensation

You may be able to move a few lines down and start from there. It might be that it leaves a little geometry to clean up by hand but that is better than not getting the job done. Can you post the file you are trying to cut?

Re: Profile Modeler MDF door corners

What is your largest tool diameter? I would rough with something like a 3/8" end mill and finish with a 1/4" ballnose then cleanup with the 1/8". Also check your mdf door design and make sure the "miter corner" box is checked.

Chris, I'm not sure I've had that problem before but sometimes weird stuff happens that is hard to explain. Glad you got it fixed.

Re: part editor

Make sure you are not using a material with grain. Also in Control nest set the part rotation to something like 5 degrees or smaller. This allows it to rotate the parts until it fits them into a sheet.

Banding not calculating

Loading slab doors with banding in the batch area doesn't calculate properly for multiples.

Re: Tenon cleanup

Depending on the thickness of your material if you use a mortised compression bit with a shorter upshear it will help as long as the upcut portion is below the pocketed surface.

Global change of faceframe construction

I haven't tried this before now but is there any way to change the face frames from butt joint to mortised globally? I tried within the global mod section and it seems as if the settings are only there to tweak what already exist.

Re: Problem Making Arched Rail in Part Editor

Your creating 2 pockets and removing. Why not draw the shape and select "create part" as 1 operation?
