Air Hockey?

Late on a Saturday afternoon (VERY LATE!!) we realized that if we took the spoilboard off the router, laminated and perforated a waste board, and turned on our air assist we would have a killer air hockey table!! After a bit more consideration (and maybe another bear) we realized that we could mount...

When I look at the vote results I see five people in need of kitchen cabinet designs. Have any of you checked out the offerings under kitchen cabinets. Both myself and Kerry have libraries offered that feature kitchen cabinets, perhaps these would be suitable to your needs. If you don't feel as thou...

Dave, Two things. One: Manually nested sheets? Am I correct in assuming you are putting multiple parts on one sheet and then forcing CN to cut them using the chain comp out command instead of the outline command? If so how does that work? What are you doing for the outlines? I have a bunch of doors ...

I know I am very excited to be a part of this. Of course I am looking at it from the both sides of the coin, but mainly from being able to act as a supplier. I have already made a number of new business contacts and new friends as a result of Thermwood and eCabinets. I think the design sharing and p...

Brad, The only problem I see with tool name instead of tool diameter is the fact that the name would have to match exactly. IE. 3-8 mortise compression 3/8 mortise compression .375 mortise compression 3/8\" mortise compression and so on. Given that it tends to eliminate some of the generic natu...

Brad, Your idea would work as well. As far as DXF files not being machine specific, I see your point, but the file would still basically be generic with only a minor amount of tweaking and even then only when that specific command was called perhaps something like this. Pocket z0p375 D0p375 would lo...

Nice idea Brad, I think that would definetley help. Another possibility that would add even more flexibility for the programmer is instead of having the layer name specify tool diameter, have it specify tool number. That way I could have three different 1/2\" diameter bits set up for that mater...

Dave, A diameter change in the tool table (F9-F2) will not adversly effect outline or dado operations. The control will automatically compensate for the diameter you have plugged in, in fact we use this on a regular basis to tweak fits. The centerline tool is a different story, here rolling nest is ...

In all the years I have enjoyed this forum, there has never been a rude or harsh word posted here (at least not that I can remember).

Nick,
As far as I know the bug with recogonizing overlapping geometry regardless of the layer still exists. The answer is to offset the geomety by .001 between layers. Usually .001 will no cause a problem with parts.
