Re: DXF will not load

Stuart, That's a lot of entities. There are nearly 8000 on you chaincompout layer and almost 1300 on you chaincompin layer. With that number of entities Control Nesting is going to have a hard time processing it regardless the age of your machine. I would suggest trying to redraw eliminating as many...

Green means backside operations. Can you either post the cabinet or send it to cabinets@thermwood.com? Also what version of eCabinets are you using?

Re: Stretcher position issue

Don, In your attached picture, on the left stretcher, Inset 1 is referencing the top of the partition. The right stretcher Inset 1 is referencing the top of the end panel. The partition is under the top where as the end is above it. You'll need a numerical difference in them to achieve the same dime...

Re: holes missing from cabinets

Chris, Do you remember your exact steps when you created the original .twd? I'm sure I'm reaching but if you can remember it may help us narrow down whats happening. Are you loading the assembly into Cabinet Editor then writing to CNC, is it loaded in batch and wrote to CNC, is it in a room layout a...

Re: holes missing from cabinets

Re: Shopbot Link

And for clarity for others, the issue is in the latest Beta 1.21.2. For me it is functioning within 1.0.21 and 1.0.20.

Re: Shopbot Link

Tim,

I'm reproducing what you see so I'll get it listed so we can correct it. Doing as Forrest suggests by using Batch Cabinets will allow it to write to nest correctly.

Re: Generating CNC file

Ah. Thank you very much. I guess I didn't look at the screen close enough. Just wondering, is there a reason for the separate CNC button, for a single cabinet, versus the other CNC button on the toolbar? The top toolbar is a "job" level toolbar. So that CNC button refers to generating CNC...

Re: holes missing from cabinets

At the risk of sounding like a smarta$$, check your boring bit tips. If the pattern is there and the code is right, then you should see your machine try to make the moves, too. Witness the program as it cuts. I've had a bad bit twist the tip right off. Sometimes, the simplest answer is one overlook...

Re: holes missing from cabinets

Chris, Can you send an export of your Control Nesting and the .twd you nested to create this code? I loaded your assembly into eCabinets and wrote to CNC without doing any material thickness changes. Loading into Control Nesting with a random export I had, nesting along X, filtering out only the Mel...

Re: Shopbot Link approaching almost 3.5 years since last update

One minor note with regards to pocket screws. You must set up your 3/8" and 5mm tools twice in the tooling dialog. The 3/8" tool should be set up for its normal operations, then once again with the Pocket Screw Rout box checked. The same goes for the 5mm tool, set up once for its regular o...

Re: Shopbot Link approaching almost 3.5 years since last update

It appears that Clint isn't getting my exports and I'm not certain why. At this point it appears that there are a few bugs that need to be fixed, one I ran into this am is that it seems to ignore nesting in the x and y. I clicked y and it nested x. I don't use tabs nor pocket holes so I didn't chec...

Re: Solid glass door

Don, You can create a door to the thickness you would like, then select it, click File, then Export Selection. This will export that part as an .hsf file. This file can be brought into the Display Part Editor, changed to transparent, and colors modified to make it look like tinted glass. Then saved ...
