Predrill for dado

Postby Nicholas Kiss » Fri, Jan 05 2018, 8:54PM

I'm trying to program predrill holes for left and right end assisting the dado and part editor takes so long is there any option of doing it faster? i need 3/16 holes
Thank You,

Nicholas,

Do you want the screw holes to interrupt the dado, or just want them in addition to the dado?

I would like it in addition because of the top stretchers it might be a better idea to interrupt it on a longer stretch such as the sides(?)
Thanks again,

Nicholas,

If you don't want it to interrupt the dado, it will have to be manually added in via Part Editor. If it can interrupt the dado you can make a custom KD pattern to make through drill holes and use the Lock Dado construction method.
