ShopBot Link - tabs or skin - which takes precedence

When specifying to leave a skin or tabs on small parts, which takes precedence - skins or tabs? In other words, if I make skin and tab parameters the same - width, square inches, etc, which is SB Link going to use to hold the part in place?

I'm using SB Link 1.0.12.

Thanks,

Re: Stock Molding modofications

Thank you Kerry. I guess with software there are always work-arounds to accomplish the final outcome.

I'll do that and I think the customer will be happy with the results.

Thank you again!

Stock Molding modofications

Is there a way to take the stock molding in eCabinets and modify them? Specifically I would like to use one of the Conestoga base moldings Product ID Colonial-Base-10 Cherry and make it 3.5" tall instead of the default 4.5" tall. Can this be done? If so, how would it be done?

Thank you!

Re: ShopBot Link nesting effectiveness

No worries Neville. Chime in any time. ShopBot certainly isn't the only machine in town using the Thermwood code. You guys with the big iron used it long before ShopBot ever came on the scene. Getting a little historical perspective on this has been most enlightening. What is effecting you will effe...

Re: ShopBot Link nesting effectiveness

Larry, Thank you for the reply. Are there any ShopBot Link settings that I might have overlooked that could change the X and Y around? Thank you for all your help and advice on this. I really appreciate you guys a lot and everything you are doing! :beer: I know that software development and support ...

Re: ShopBot Link nesting effectiveness

Hi Larry, When looking at your X nest above, it's interesting to note that my X nest lays out parts along the long (length) axis of the material while my Y nest lays out parts along the shorter (width) axis. Is there something in the Link that enables you to change that orientation? My machine is se...

Re: ShopBot Link nesting effectiveness

Thank you Larry. I'm going to try playing with the X and Y settings along with the starting corner settings to see what happens. I had gone back and forth between the X and Y setting but didn't change the corner origin. When changing between X and Y layout, I found that the Y layout was no better an...

Re: ShopBot Link nesting effectiveness

Thank you Larry, I kinda figured that with a small number of parts the software might not be as efficient, but in this case it confused me a little as to why it lined up everything except that one part (6) and just kinda put it randomly out into la-la land when there was plenty of room to put it in ...

ShopBot Link nesting effectiveness

ShopBot Link Gurus, I'm a little perplexed by a nesting layout (see below) that ShopBot Link did with a simple test cabinet I've been working with. I was wondering why it did not move part 6 between part 5 and 4 and save a bunch of plywood. If there is a problem in getting it to fit, it seems like i...

ShopBot Link manual not making sense

I am just getting started trying to use the ShopBot Link and have run into a little snag. I'm trying to get cutting tools set up in the Link. On page 23 it states "Each tool will need to be set up in Tool Management on the Thermwood Control Prior to setting up the Operations here". On page...

Rob,

Thank you so very much!. :D I knew it probably had something to do with "small brain syndrome" on my part.

Rt click wall or floor and select Wall/Floor Texture - not

I'm a new user to eCabinet Systems and so far it looks like the capabilities are incredible. There is so much in this software that I know I have a long learning road ahead of me so I suspect the following question has to do with operator error (OE) versus something wrong in the software. When I rig...
