jagged arcs

I had a customer send me his lettering files. He is an architect and is using some modified font instead of pre-loaded one so he sent them in Autocad file, I converted them in Mastercam and went to cut them. The arcs are now a lot of jagged straight sections instead of a smooth arc. Do I need to use...

Re: Machining Pocket Screws

Solution: Scott was most helpful as always. My error was I did not read the manual for this new feature. I needed to name tools for this and when I did, success. Go to Thermwood/software manuals/control nesting and then look up "pocketscrew" and it will guide you through it. It is not over...

Re: Machining Pocket Screws

Forrest, maybe stupid question but do I need to include the quotation marks on the name "pocketscrew"?

Re: Machining Pocket Screws

Forrest, Thanks for the reply. We outline with a 3/8 tool so I set up a second 3/8 tool to do the pocketscrew. I have it checked for rout/dado, drill, interpolate, and pocket. I think I did as told by going to Operation List in CN and there is the option to name a tool operation and I entered "...

Machining Pocket Screws

All, Tried our first pocket screw joinery on a small test cabinet. It did not make the pockets. It drilled the 1/8" hole for the step and it drilled, retracted to above the surface and then angled out to what should have been a pocket but it was in space above the sheet. It never made the actua...

Re: Version 6.0 Build 11

Am getting "data execution prevention" which stops download and shuts down computer. I successfully loaded this once and after "verifying" license, it killed my whole computer and went to safe mode. Suggestions?

Re: Offset at end of tenon

brad,
we use a 3/8 compression tool to outline. The dado is done by either the same tool or a 1/4" straight tool or a 3/16 straight cutter, depending on the "width" of the tenon. The material is 3/4 plywood with actual thickness of 0.726" on average.

Re: Offset at end of tenon

Before you all respond it is in my tool diameters, I measured them and they are correct to within 0.003 or so.

Offset at end of tenon

We machine for others and one of my customers is having an issue that I don't see on our stuff. Any idea why he is seeing this? I think it might be related to the fit and depth clearance he specifies. We set ours at 0.015 and his is 0.040. We have tried to get him to reduce this because we think it ...

Re: Hinge Hole

JNR,
Thanks! I thought it was some pocket setting. So do you think we made it too small or too big? I think we need to go bigger. Agree?

Hinge Hole

Today's quiz: Any idea what setting we have changed to make our hinge hole come out like this instead of an empty pocket?

Re: Problem during tool length opp

Before you estopped, did you take speed dial to 0? head will traverse but not go down if speed variable is on 0. Just wondering if you are like me and sometimes can't see the forest in the middle of the trees.
