Flips not lining up?

I've attached a couple of pictures to help explain my problem. A few weeks ago I built a couple of cabinets with plexi glass dividers inbetween shelves. The client wanted another one only slightly modified in dimensions. Now when I do a flip operation the dividers don't line up. Not sure if somethin...

Puzzled with puzzle connection?

First time trying this. Doesn't look right though. 1/2" bit was used to do all cutting. They definitely do not connect.
Can anyone shed some light on my problem?
Thanks

Off Fall iregular?

As you can see by my picture the off falls that are created are not rectangular. They should be. Any ideas why this would happen?
Thanks

DXF and pocketing

Just touching on DXF files with our Thermwood 43. I've attached a pic. As you can see, some areas were not pocketed? Not sure if my settings for tools are correct. It used 1/2", 3/8", 1/4" and 1/8 tools to create. We have just purchased Artcam but haven't had time to use it yet. Any i...

Problem using 1/2" outline bit

Capture11.PNG I just want to cut out a finger slot on top of this drawer box front. I have attached 2 pics. One from Constraint manager and the other is my issue. BTW, the issue happens on both sides. The 1/2" bit travels straight but cuts down before cutting the arc. I used circles and a rect...

I had to cut some lettering recently for a customer. 1/2" MDF. I used a 1/4" bit. As you can see from the picture the corners of the "N" is where the issue is. The original is a letter comes to a point in that area. I'm just wondering why it would drill out that area like that? T...
