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: Generating CNC file

Donald, while in CE there is a cnc button on the bottom left that you use for individual cabinets.

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.

I've only installed it on my desktop. I haven't installed an update on my machine for about 3 years.

Re: control upgrade

The software is the latest super control version that has a setting for gcode output depending on what controller is on your router. My router is 14 years old and still running W2k and while its painfully slow nesting and writing code it runs the code just fine. I do keep up with the CN versions mai...

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.
