Re: Control Nesting V8

Regarding the following concern:

Before when i ran a TWD it wrote a .CNC program to the CNC folder. That no longer happens.

Have you checked the CNC File Path, located in Control Nesting SETTINGS.

Re: CN-5.65 Update

Most likely, however it is NOT advised that you install any Windows updates on your Thermwood control. Only utilize the software that exists on your RESTORE CD that shipped with the machine from the factory, or in which you may have received through Thermwood directly.

Re: Problems Profiling

It looks to me that extending each end of your tool downward has allowed a better clean up as the part is created in Part editor.

Re: Basic Tooling recomendations

Machine training would be best place to start. This would help cover alot of the basics that you need to first get out of the way. This will also lessen your chances of severly damaging machinery. You can travel to Therwmood for a class room setting, using smaller simulation machines with wooden dow...

Re: Model 45 Auto load unload

The addition to the model 45 is the newest change. This type of system has been around for quite some time on the model 53 offered. I do not know engineering's plans as far as whether they will be implementing on the MTR machines, but would think it it could be done per customer order. For existing ...

Re: Sink cutout G Code program

In any case, Thermwood does not recommend installing any additional software on the controller itself. The computer system has been designed specifically for controlling the machine tool and storing part program files. If you do utilize additional software near the control, it is advised to have a s...

Re: Tooling suggestions for PVC

You will have to work with Feeds/Speeds per your application but, I've had pretty good luck using a (3) flute low helix tool when cutting harder type plastics. The upward, low helix helps remove chips, but doesn't have as much pull on the part as a typical helical tool. Below you will find the woodw...
