Re: Fold together veneer box?

Error in region 2 means that you are not using one tool to make the cut...you need to specify a custom tool in profile modeler....right now it is trying to make the miters using a variety of tools....

If you are using the correct profile there would only be one region in Profile Modeler....

Load tool specs into tool manager at CN 4. In parts editor offset tool (comp out) amount you are cutting into spoil board(we use 1/32) 5. M...

Count me in for user defined molding As far as MV and the Thermwood we have noticed that the DXF generation in MV corresponds exactly(almost) to the G-Code generation. As a result we see climb cuts in dadoes on one side of the cabinet and conventional cuts on the other side...we discovered this when...

Edge banders are great tools however, expensive and really require volume for a good ROI ex-factory allways has good deals...then...

Ryan, Thanks again for all your help. I do have a question though about the CNC file that is not cutting right...I believe MV generates it's own G-code...although we did have issues with MV DXF's...our primary concern was the G-code gnerated by MV. Do you know anyother Thermwood owners that have suc...

Using splines in the shape manager

I was trying to use splines in the shape manager and then import the geometry to the parts editor....

A couple of things are going on:

Splines won't extend or trim
After I save the geometry only a portion of it shows up in the parts editor

Like Nano said.... We tried everything out.. ended up getting it to work in the parts editor by saving it in version 12 of ACAD... The parts were delivered ontime and everything went well...
