Re: Order of Drilling Stacked Holes

Thanks Brad, I'll do some air cuts and see what those do. Oddly, I noticed this morning that if cutting both holes with the spindle it will cut the 20mm hole first, then the 10mm, move to the next location and drill the 10mm hole then the 20mm. Its alternates the order as it moves from fitting to fi...

Re: Order of Drilling Stacked Holes

Hi, thanks very much for the feedback. David, I may end up doing as you do. I haven't had much luck drilling system hole cleanly through material, but I have some leeway on the holes as they'll be covered with a 15mm cap, which should hide any blowout. Neville, I haven't had the courage to chuck a 2...

Order of Drilling Stacked Holes

The attached image shows a hole pattern I'm needing help with. The yellow is a 20mm hole, 14mm deep, the red is a 10mm hole 19mm (full depth of the material). In the SB Link, I'm using my spindle to 'drill' these holes. At present, it creates the 10mm hole first, then the 20mm hole. I'd like to reve...

Re: Frameless Corner Cabinet with Angled Front

My vote would be for an option to add material to the sides, if desired.

It's very odd that it's factored in automatically, without any indication of it doing so. It's a mistake waiting to happen.

Frameless Corner Cabinet with Angled Front

Can someone tell me why the software extends the depth on this type of cabinet by the thickness of the side panels? I enter a left and right depth of 304 and it produces parts for a 323 deep cabinet. The only thing I can think of it that it allows for the sides to be trimmed at the same angle to mat...

Thank you for 'No Drilling'

Just used this option in the SBLink and it helped me salvage a sheet that I had mistakingly run with 'no outline cuts' selected. Thanks very much for adding this feature in.

Re: Oversized Holes

Thanks very much for the feedback, I'll take a look at the machine tomorrow. What's odd is that it comes and goes, and when it does happen it's confined to a single job, but happens all throughout that job.

Re: Oversized Holes

Hi, same material used from job to job, no changes in the link settings. The same bit is used for multiple jobs. One job (most) will be fine, then on the next, all the 8mm holes are oversized, then the next job they're fine again.

Oversized Holes

I'm having an issue machining the RTA pattern shown in the attached photo. The pattern has an 8mm through hole cut in the field of the 20mmhole, which allows the fitting to be tightened from both side of the part. This hole then gets a covered with cap which has an 8mm stem that fits into the hole. ...

Re: Shopbot Link approaching almost 3.5 years since last update

Would it be possible to add the option 'No Drillings' similar to 'No Outline Cuts'? From time to time I've had to stop the machine mid sheet (broken bit, glitch etc), and in order to continue needed to run the entire sheet again. Where many of our parts have full line boring, and the drilling is don...

Re: SB Link Printer Setup

Thanks very much. I'm going to hook up my old control computer later on today (hopefully) and take a look at how things are setup there.

Re: SB Link Printer Setup

Most recent version of the Link is installed so not clear why it's not remembering my printer selection.

Re: SB Link Printer Setup

Should be the most recent version, but I'll check in the morning. I do still have the old control computer, so may take a look on there to see how things were setup. Thanks

Re: SB Link Printer Setup

Those are the steps I'm following too, but it's not remembering the printer I'm choosing to print the labels for some reason.
