T shaped pocket help

Postby mohan kommineni » Wed, Aug 24 2011, 12:59AM

Hello all
we are trying to cut a new display base and having issu on the t shaped pocket it does every thing correct except the t shape (only does the vertical line of t but dosent do the horizontal line to finish the t shape) can any one had this issue before all the tools are setup and ready can any one try to run this and check for me thanks

i had a similar issue viewtopic.php?f=7&t=11792 in the past where we had a hole and a rectangular pocket on the top of each other and the machine doesnt do the rectangular pocket and i was told by THM Tech that it is in the list to fix in future. looks like Tech are too busy to handle silly issues.

Thanks to one and all

Hi Mohan,

To enable a more detailed review of your issue, we would also need to see your Control Nesting settings (EXPORT file).

Thanks!

Mohan,

The t slot.esj file that I've downloaded does not contain information that I can view. In order for another user to view design within a .esj file, individual who has created file must have generated drawing in room layout or created a batch. The other option is to have saved the design file in the cabinet editor as a .esa ( assembly ) or .hsf ( cabinet ) file. I've tried renaming your file with all the different extensions, but still do not see design your questioning.

I was able to change some settings and get the file to nest and write the cnc with the T pocket. The first thing I did was to check ignore groups in the tooling section. Your material you created the part out of is set for group 2 and it does not have a small enough tool to cut the pocket. The default group does. The second change was in the settings area. I changed the pocket area through cuts to 10322.56mm. This allowed the machine to recognize the whole t shape and pocket it completely. Hope this helps.
