2020 Designs and Thermwood Link

Anyone using the 2020 Design link to send files to the machine? If you are, what was involved in the setup and how well is it working for you? We build 90% frameless residential cabinets. Any custom stuff I would still run through Ecab. Right now our designers are using 2020 then giving me the files...

PUZZLE JOINTS

I ran into a project that I would like to use the puzzle joints on. Everything looked fine in ecabs, but when I loaded it in CN the puzzle joints are not showing up. It will cut the outlines on the rails but no pockets. Is there something that needs set up at the machine?

Thanks,

Re: Cut thru depth wrong

I just had a problem with cut through depth and we figured out it was because we were changing the material thickness while creating the twd. Might be something you could check.

Re: Dovetail Bit Sharpening

Where do you get the diamond bit? I also use a 1/2" Birch. If it isn't a Thermwood bit do you have to make any major adjustments to your ecab and control nesting settings?

Thanks,

Dovetail Bit Sharpening

Do you guys get your dovetail bits sharpened or do you just replace them when they get dull?

Thanks,

Re: Still another Feature Request

I would like to see the ability to change the door panel material to a sheet good. When doing 5pc. flat panel doors the panel material would be included in the nest. On another note, I tried exporting my cutlist to excel and set it up to load a batch job of just door panels and could not get it to w...

Lock Dado Question

Is there anyway to put 2 KD fasteners and one small tenon on stretchers around 5" wide. I tried a few different setting and couldn't seem to get it. When routing it slows down so much cutting around the two small tenons my bits are dulling faster than normal.

Re: Was creating twd files, now CryptAcquireContext Errors

The fix worked for me at the end of last week. I was creating another TWD file this morning and got the error. Am I going to have to do this each time I create a TWD?

Thanks,

Re: Cutting Aluminum

Here is some 1/4" 6061 sheet we cut last year for a project. We used a Onsrud spiral o-flute upcut. It took a while to get all the feeds and speeds down but after we did it cut like butter. PS. We drilled all the holes first and then ran screws in to secure the piece to the wasteboard. We also ...

Dovetail Drawer Problem

I got an error while running dovetail drawer boxes. I just installed the patch for control nesting 5.59-Patch 1. Before this I had no problems.

I know most people are off for the Holiday, but I wanted to throw it out there and see if anyone has a fix for this.

Thanks,

TWD from Ecab 6.8 Error

After updating to build 8 any twd file I try to load gives me an error. The error is "Invalad Database; GetRows Binding errror. Probably caused by mismatched data type." I load older twd files fine. It just seems to be the ones since build 8. I was trying to get the machine set up for tomo...
