Re: Is youbuild.com going to be like production sharing???

I just got a flier from one of my distributors that they will be carrying the "cabinotch" system of knock down cabinets. The flier also explained how CFP bought out "cabinotch" and the system will be supplied with their purebond plywood. It looks like CFP is going after the cabin...

I talked with someone at Thermwood last week and they told me this will not be available to us. Columbia Forest Products will be machining all the parts for Home Depot.

blind dado dxf drawing

Any one ever run blind dados off a dxf drawing?

I was wondering what would be the proper procedure for this process. Do you draw the dado operation and step the outline cut in.

Any one got a sample drawing?

Thanks,

Constraints

I have some standard closet components set up in a library. They have 32mm system holes the length of the panels 72". Is there a quick way to apply constraints to the whole pattern or will I have to add constraints to each hole?

Thanks,

Re: Barb dado plunge

Forrest,

I am thinking about trying the bard dado. I am assuming you are using the 1/4" tool available. Can you give me some info on your settings you are running with this tool; i.e. feeds and speeds.

Thanks,

Re: Cutting aluminum sheet

I just wanted to thank Ryan, Brent and everyone else for their suggestions and help. I ended up getting the tool that Brent recommended (Onsrud 63 series o-flute). I didn't cut it one pass like everyone said I could, I was a little conservative. I figured I would post my setup in case anyone else ev...

Clearance between parts with control nesting

I have a job I am trying to nest 14 pieces on one sheet. I can't seem to get CN to do it. I can put it on my other software and there is more than enough room to get the parts on to one sheet. I think it must be in the part clearance settings on CN. Is there anyway to adjust this setting to a smalle...

Re: Printer Recommendations

After doing some research I think we are going to the HP Officejet Pro 8500. It seems to be the best value of everything I have seen.

Printer Recommendations

Can anyone recommend a good printer for everyday use and printing renderings. We tried the Kodak with the inexpensive ink, but have had numerous problems with the printer over the last year. The ink was inexpensive, but it seemed to not last as long as our old HP office jet.

Thanks,
