Re: Drilling 5mm holes with a 10mm shank?

John, In response to your questions... "Do your drill bits have a flat on the shank?" Yes, our drill bits have a flat on the shank. These are standard drill bits that will run at about 6000 RPM. At this low spindle speed, tool balance is not an issue. "How do these fit in a router col...

Re: Drilling 5mm holes with a 10mm shank?

John, Yes, the advantage is that a drill is designed to drill and should do it faster and a lot cleaner. Drills are designed to do their cutting while they plunge and are very efficient at that.

Re: Cabinet editor graphics slow and jerky

Marvin, Make sure your graphics card drivers are up to date. If you just reload the defaults from the Windows XP CD and/or the video card CD that came with the computer, the may be very outdated when it comes to the 3D graphics manipulation. Your best bet is to go to the graphic card manufacturers s...

Re: Pocketing with 5.48 Question

Hmmmm..... Perhaps adding something in the settings to select whether Control Nesting should ignore any "D" parameter on a "POCKET" DXF layer name. (Best not to ignore the "D" on CHAIN and CENTERLINE layers... :wink: Hmmm are there others?) Or perhaps just start ignorin...

Re: Selectable Flip Operations

Doug, Would a better solution be to be able to "see" the FACE of a single sided material within eCab and then also be able to toggle that FACE to the side needed? This way the information goes out to the machine in a TWD and the operator would not have to get involved flipping this part an...

Re: is it possible in ecabinets vertical bin

Mohan, I am trying to picture what you want.... Seems that all you have to do is design the cabinet looking at the front (HOME view) as if you were looking down at it from the top. In this "view" the TOP would become your BACK, the DECK your FRONT,.. etc. You could add USER NAMES to the pa...

Re: Barcodes printing in CN 5.48

Mohan,

You may want to refer to this thread - Printing Labels

If you only need barcodes for FLIP PARTS and OFF FALLS/CUTS then see the label report that I uploaded in this post - Re: Printing Labels - Off-Falls Only Updated

Hope this helps...

James, In order to just display the contents to the screen on the controller, you can use the TYPE command. The syntax would be: C:\TWOOD>TYPE macro21.thm This will "type" the contents of this MACRO21.THM (an ASCII text file) to the screen. ( I don't recommend that you use this on binary f...
