Re: error

Josh,

Your issue is because of the lack of arc intersections when cutter compensation is applied. See the images to review the issue and the fix.

Re: DXFs Won't Nest. No Current Record error displayed

Kyle, I took a look at them and it seems there is something particular to the "F" operations - the geometry associated with the "r64f####.dxf" files. Just to check.. In the MACHINE CATALOG - Do you have the the following settings? DXF - Geometry ⋅ Break Polylines... YES...

Re: CS 43 error

Our Service Group here at CNC Automation worked through some triage with the client yesterday and apparently it looks like a 24v power supply issue. The Service Group advised me that the parts are on order and on there way to the client.

Re: Cabinet Vision DXF to Model 43

Yes... it would probably be best to go through Clint so that the general software support link is maintained.

I am sure that if anyone does request the documentation from him, he will advise them of any updates/revisions.

Canada Day holiday up here tomorrow.

Have a great July 4th weekend!

Re: Cabinet Vision DXF to Model 43

Great! Thanks for that information/feedback Kyle. I will add a note in our documentation about assigning a different texture to each face. I will also be adding a couple of notes concerning the tooling definitions that can help minimize things like SHEAR VARIANCE warnings when processing the job in ...

Re: Cabinet Vision DXF to Model 43

Kyle, " Face Dependant " information SHOULD be preserved for " Single Sided " ( SS ) materials... Since CV always places " INNER " machining operations " Face Up " in the DXFs, the assumption is that the standard " OUTER " surface ( the "B"...

Re: Min Pocket Leftover area for outline

Kyle,

As far as I know... no - the "Min Pocket Leftover" applies only to POCKET operations and not to OUTLINEs.

Re: Cabinet Vision DXF to Model 43

To all interested: CNC Automation has been working with one of our clients in Canada on the link between Cabinet Vision and Control Nesting. The old "Job Level" MDB interface is a "dead-horse" as it requires too much support and additional development from the Cabinet Vision peop...

Re: Cutting letters

For a FREE CAD program that is very AUTOCAD compatible (2D only) is DraftSight . We recommend it to our clients that do not have AUTOCAD and who need a CAD package. Of course it is capable of generating Layered DXF files that can be processed with Control Nesting. DraftSight® FREE* CAD Software Down...

Re: Layers

Kim, As you know, during our email exchange last week we sent you a fairly concise guide as to Layer Names and the requirements when used with Control Nesting . (" Layered DXFS - Detailed (2016-03-10).pdf ") Layer/level names themselves are not solely a function/feature of Control Nesting ...

Re: Profile Modeler MDF door corners

Sorry Stuart...

I would have to go with Forrest's suggestion. Most of our customers up here in Canada doing similar doors are using Panelmetrix.

In the Control Nesting [Settings] dialog, set the "Keep Recut History" to 0 days and [Clean] the existing History file.

Re: Cnc is loading jobs slow and slow in general

I am not sure if it has been suggested yet, but... If you are NOT using the "Recut" feature, set the "Keep Recut History" to 0 days and [Clean] the existing History file. The behind the scenes management of this HISTORY database as well as its growing size can slow things down. I...

Re: Part exists but failed to nest

Stuart, My only thought is that the "nesting" within eCabinets Systems may not be totally identical with that within the latest versions of Control Nesting. There could be something that was "modified" in the Control Nesting optimization/nesting that was not addressed within the ...
