Re: Draw Text in Gadget

I've built a gadget to help reduce steps and to gain precision and time. I've gotten the lines drawn, now I would like to add some text to the layer I've drawn into (ala Draw Text tool). I don't see anything in the API documentation about this. Is it possible to do from a Lua script? Hi Dave, Have ...

Spiral Gadget

Hello All, I have been rebuilding my 4th axis on the mill and I was looking at the methods to turn a Squair to a round. The Vectric gadget has 3 patens to do this. 1. works on the 4 corners. 2, works by rotating 0 angle to 360 and back. 3. runs up and down the length. I am looking to write a Easy Sp...

Re: fraction to decimal chart

Pedantic crisis averted! I'm liking it more! I would be using my 30 deg. engraving bit and a single line font. Then I would duplicate toolpaths and add 0.001" or 0.002" to the depth each time. Maybe two cleanup passes depending on what wood you're using. Those letters are going to be difficult to c...

Hello All,

I just made this and was thinking you all may want to make one in your shop.

It is 0.5 x 20 x 30 MDF.

Re: Getting the Router to lift in the Z axis before attempting to move to another part when parts are nested

I am new to the CNC world for creating parts, but I have been successful in making individual parts so far. When I have attempted to nest the parts and move from part to part, I am having an issue with the bit being dragged through a good part while lifting to get to the next part. I really need th...

Thanks Jim,

It is working!

My CNC cutting bed is 48 wide by 96" tall. How do I tell Easy Cabinet to rotate 90 degrees +/-?

Is the only option to do it manually?

Yes, you need to do it manually but I can add that to the code.

Give me some time to figure it out.
