gadgets box creater

Postby woodchuckvt » Wed Feb 07, 2018 8:08 pm

any one used this gadget? I tried to create a box to make a drawer , I have a 24x36 work area, the drawer is 12x22, more than enough room to make all five pieces. but the gadget stacks all the pieces in the y axis the 22x12 bottom first then all four 6" on top of that leaving space for the bit. puts it over 36", no way to edit or move the pieces. am i missing something or is there a nesting button i'm not seeing? any help appreciated thanks

If you use the box joint rather than dovetail then you can move things around and recalculate the toolpaths. With the dovetail joint you can't as the toolpath is classed as imported so can't be recalculated. There is no way to re-arrange the dovetail version that I'm aware of but I tend to use the dovetail gadget to create boxes myself so haven't used that side of the box creator gadget much.
