Nesting Error

Postby Nat Wheatley » Thu, Jul 05 2018, 11:59AM

When I try to nest the attached cabinet using SB Link, I get the error messages:

'Couldn't find tool to work for pocket operation 3 on side 1 1 '

'Couldn't find tool to work for pocket operation 24 on side 4 1 '

Not sure how to attach the TWD file...

Nat,

Can you also post an export from your ShopBot Link?

Nat,
hope you don't tire of hearing from me. I noticed in your constraint manager that there is a dimesion of .0098 . not sure what that would be. FYI I run a shopbot too.

Hi,

I put in that small dimension (.25mm) to keep the two pockets (different depths) separate. I’ve had issues in the past with two pockets touching, the seem to melt together, and throw the constraints off. The .25 is small enough that it gets cut away regardless.

I hadn’t realized you were running a SB also. I continue to be impressed with the capability of the machine. It’s been worth the time and effort to get it that point.

Nat, some time ago I think I may have had a very similar error. After some frustration I found that it was because I had the wrong tool for cutting a dado. It seems like maybe I was trying to cut a 1/4" dado with a 3/8" cutter, or something like that. I had to check each cabinet to figure out what is was.

Just thinking, another way to check would be to remove one cabinet at a time from nesting, then re-nest and see if the job will nest properly.

Sorry,realized yesterday that it was a bad RTA pattern on the back stretcher that was causing the issue (Posted here yesterday but the message didn’t seem to take...)

Thanks to all for the input.
