Re: x axis error

In Ecabinets set the material to be bigger than it really is, e.g 1225mm wide and 2445 Long etc.

Also you dont want to have a 2mm collar as that moves the panels in 2mm from the edge and with nest to edge it kinda like a double negative.

Re: setting material thinckness

We do when its ply wood. But most of our MDF or chipboard is .3 maybe up to .5 or down to .2 but dont think that would matter much.

Hope this Helps

Re: setting material thinckness

Hey Jim

Because Board can vary all over it i've always set any board i have to .3, E.g 18mm White board is set to 18.3mm, MDF is just 18mm. and all colour board is .3

Hope This helps!
