This was changed so that the offfall database does not grow too large with offfalls when you do not want them. I do not know if there are plans to change this but there is a quick work around. First nest with the offfalls turned on, then print your labels. Once the labels are printed, go in the settings and turn the offfall off. When you return to the main screen you will not have the offfalls on the screen and they will not be cut.
Ok...I Guess...Still a two step process compared to one. Slowing things down not speeding them up.
Label printer Dymo - random lockups when going to print (never had this happen before~maybe driver related incompatibilities win Win7?)
We have seen in the past that if the 5volt dc power drops below 4.8 volds coming out of the power transformer for the printer, it can cause problems. If you check this voltage and it is fine, I would recommend going to the dymo website and downloading the most recent driver for the printer.
Barcode reader - not working, should get sorted out when tech gets back.
If the barcode reader is a USB reader, then it needs to be re-installed anytime it is unplugged. If you need the setup page for this, I can fax it or email it to you. If it is an older serial scanner, then it may need to be reinstalled also.
Please send this setup . Barcode reader is serial. Does not work now.
Not a major issue yet, but I'm sure it will come to bite me when I least need it to, is no admin control/passwords, which is causing headaches when trying to set up over a network eg trying to send a file from ecabs upstairs to the control.
When we send out an upgrade or update that changes the operating system, we never set the admin password. We leave it up to the customer to set this due to differences in networks and securities the machine will be connected to.
Still trying this but there are two accounts on the computer and one is Thermwood Technician (password protected with admin rights ) and it appears to be blocking attemots to change settings to the other account Thermwood User which also has admin rights.
No Win7 disk supplied with setup, just the CD case? Why?
The Windows 7 software is applied to the restore CD that you received with the upgrade. We do not supply the actual cd because it is not needed, only the registration code is needed.
NEW - Can't rotate offall to sit against bottom left corner of CNC. It rotates on screen in the offall area, but not when it goes to nest.
When you rotate an offfall piece, you need to make sure that you save selected under the offfall dialog. You also need to go into the settings ,nesting parameers and tell it what corner of the table it will nest to.
It should be set to lower left.
Have done this. However it still rotates back to its original state. Please try this on one of your setups and see if it works.
If you have any questions, let me know.
