Dxf Files

I have used DXF files to cut individual parts, but my experience has been hit or miss. I use TurboCAD version 10.2. The problems seem worse when I try to combine types of lines. What I am currently trying to do is cut some arches. I've done this before without a hitch but now I am getting the follow...

Rob, How have things been since eCabinets class? We were following the process of putting the hole pattern in associated with hardware and we had the initial problem, but when we upgraded to the latest version of rolling nest, the problem seemed to clear. What we are still seeing is that in using a ...

We were at version 4.49 of Rolling Nest. I downloaded the 4.57 and re-ran the part and it did not create a second circle around the first. I am still getting a small plug in the middle since my bit is less than 1/2 the diameter of the hole. Is that something that I have to live with or is there anot...

Okay, now that I had successfully created the CNC code, I ran the program to cut the doors. For the hinges it successfully bored the two holes where the screws would go (Salice Rapido hinges). Then it cut the cup, leaving a small stub instead of a plug, but measuring it, it was 1 1/4\" in diameter, ...

Thanks.

Tooling Error in Rolling Nest

I created a tall cabinet in eCabinets and sent it to Rolling Nest. On the doors there are 32mm diameter holes for the hinges. The largest tool I have is 1/2\" I recall from controller training that a hole cannot be interpreted at more than twice the diameter of the tool. Is that correct? If so, I gu...
