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

Did you try the "create part" method also?

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?

Flip ops first problem

I think that control nest is not compensating properly for the amount it trims off the sheet. In my case .05" and the parts with tenon cuts as a flip are not lining up with the outline cutter by that amount. I haven't test on my end yet but thought that it may be known already. I'm going to run...

Windows 10 print batch list crashing

This just started happening today in batch area. I printed yesterday with no problems. It says the ecabinets system application has stopped working and then shuts down.

Re: Problems with 6.1

I just encountered the same issue with a cabinet that I've used for a couple years with no issues. It does seem to nest okay though.

Also I got the warning when I output the twd not when it loaded in control nest.

Re: Cnc is loading jobs slow and slow in general

Chris, buy THM desktop for your computer and you will never look back. I think its $1k to start with and $200 a year renewal. I would assume you have a fairly robust computer for running ecabs or other design software so not only will it free up your router to just run code but control nest will pro...

Re: pocket screws

Tim, until then you can make a RTA hole pattern that is just a slot and apply it. It will cut it as a dado.

Re: Drawer Standoffs and hardware PTN's

The spacers I used have a wide base that allows for an extra wood screw to be placed in the top and bottom of it. The main screw gets it lined up and the others are for reinforcement. I'll see if I can find any and post a pic.
