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.

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 ...

Re: Hinged Doors

Just putting in my two cents (err nickel - Canadian cents are no more!)... We have a client that uses top hinged doors in certain upper cabinets. Apart from the given upper hinges and the machining required, there system also has mounting holes (pattern) for an assisting mechanism on both gables. So...

Re: "Duplicate" DXF entities

Jeremy, Well, 0.01mm is just under 0.0004". Perhaps you can try 0.03mm which would would result in an approximately 0.0012" "shift" - something that Control Nesting (CN) may better differentiate AND is really not that much of a variance when machining. Note: I have not tried this...
