Fixed shelf protruding from cabinet

I'm trying to get the fixed shelf in the attached cabinet to be flush with the back and front of the cabinet. But it seems to be protruding from the back by a little bit. The cabinet side is 15.5" and the shelf is 15.536". I know I'm missing something here, just don't know what?

Re: ShopBot Link - tabs or skin - which takes precedence

Thank you Larry.

So if I set up to have tabs and skins, will the skinning operation route away the tabs or will the skinning operation leave the tabs in place?

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.

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...
