Formula feature request

The formula feature seems neat but limited. If you added a top inset button for fixed shelves with the fx button we can lock openings. Same goes for adding a left and right fx button for partitions.


Thanks, Forrest

Apply pocket screw spot hole

In construction settings there is the option to turn this off for each part. We need a box in global settings to do it once please.

Thanks, Forrest

Re: Spindle speed wrong

Scratch that, I had morning brain. I had to restart the program because of breaking the outline tool that was undersized. When I jumped to the outline tool it started beyond the spindle speed for that tool which means it retained the speed preceding it. Maybe that should be switched around. Anyway i...

Spindle speed wrong

In the 5.81 CN even though my outline tool is set to 18k rpm it is remaining the same as the tools before it, 10k. I broke 2 tools before I figured out what was wrong.

Re: Cut Through Depth and Holes From Part Editor

If your using a brad point drill bit often times the center point is longer than the outside cutters. This will keep it from drilling all the way thru. Try adding .05 inches or half a mm to your daylight value. I bet it cuts thru.

Re: Noise Control

I built a pump/mechanical room in the corner that contains my electrical panels. The radiator on my 40hp Travaini is against an outside wall so it pulls from outside. The room is vented back out at the top. We piped outside from the centrifuge also. All of this is in an insulated room with a door pl...

Re: Ramp-in on arc issue

Jeremy, I would assume it's related anyway. Even if your not skinning on the problem part it looks like it's still related to the new skin feature. The parts I had problems with cut fine on the initial climb cut pass but did a full circle cut inward on the final conventional pass. It seems to be doc...

Re: Ramp-in on arc issue

Will, this is a problem on parts with radius cuts that are being skinned. It has something to do with the cut opposite direction on skin pass. The issue is documented and I would think they are working on it along with another problem I found in profile modeler and mdf doors.

Hellooo! New Control nest with cool features

No one has commented so I'm wondering if anyone knows. The latest control nest feature the ability to use an over sized tool for cutting tenons to thickness. It also has a skin pass climb cut to a conventional outline. No more lip left. Check it out guys, you won't be disappointed.

Monitor going bad

After 12 years my old control monitor is on the fritz. Will a lcd type monitor work with Windows 2k?

Re: Odd Occurence(s)

Terry, in the control software I have to add .125 to a 96" sheet to get a 95.5" part. It has to do with your other settings as well. Like it automatically adds a 1/4" by default to trim the outside edge. It also adds whatever part clearance you have set (in my case .05"). If you ...

Re: KD fasteners and tooling

Hafele still has them in beige Item #: 263.50.403. The "Minifix" requires horizontal boring. It is used commonly in office furniture and crappy vanities from a big box store. I have machined parts for the Rafix on a weekly basis for 10 years now. Closet parts are almost always cams only jo...

Re: KD fasteners and tooling

You can buy Rafix for both 19mm and 16mm material. The flush mount is for the exact scenario of adjacent mounting but also because it is less visible and even excepts a thin cap to hide it. The bit I'm using works extremely well and last a long time but you will need to set the RPMs no higher than 1...

Re: KD fasteners and tooling

Josh, Hafele sells a bit with the chamfer edge. The bit plunges once and is done. You can use the same bit for both types of cams. Its the only tool I've used for 10 years.
