Re: Help With Constraints

Thanks Kerry for your response but I may have to start from scratch on this one. Try taking it from 14 1/2W to 32W That won't work. Maybe some one out there has done this type of door before? I sure could use some help on this.

Help With Constraints

Would someone be kind enough to look at this door and help me with the constraints. I am able to constrain the arcs to resize like I wish when the width changes but now the height of the door won't resize at all. Thanks for any help.

Re: DXF File in Contour Mode in PE Loading Wrong

Tom: I can reproduce something similar to what you are getting by drawing a shape on the wrong plane and exporting it as a polyface mesh. I am not sure if this is your problem but the program I use I export lines only no faces.

Re: DXF File in Contour Mode in PE Loading Wrong

Tom: You probably already know this but Make sure you are drawing the Geometry That you are exporting into Ecab. On the same plane as X and Y on the part editor screen. Looking straight down on the Z axes, Y runs top to bottom on the screen and X runs left to right. Make sure that the geometry is 2d...

Pocket cleanup pass first on flip op?????

I was doing a test run on this door and when I did the flip op for the glass pocket the machine tried to do the pocket clean up first and then the main pocket last. I have pockets on both sides with constraints. The front side has pockets with profiles. The front side pocketed as normal.

Re: how To Scale/Move Rectangles/Circles in Part Editor?

Someone correct me if I am wrong, but doesn't part editor have offset , mirror and move/copy tools that can be used to do what Tom is describing? Although Kerry's method is the method of choice for me.

Re: End mill cutter for metal on solid wood

Thanks Josh: I will give that a try. I found some flat bottom spiral cutters on MLCS web site. We have some straight 2 flute carbide tipped cutters on hand but there is a space on the bottom between the tips. I will have to try one and see if they leave marks too. Before purchasing one.

End mill cutter for metal on solid wood

I was wandering if anyone was using a end mill cutter for metal on solid wood. We have some molding to run that have some flat faces and our standard spiral cutters are leaving lines from the sharp points on the ends. The only end mills I can locate are for metal.
