Re: Easy Dovetail Maker 5.0

Hello All,

Here is the most up-to-date zip file of the Easy Tool Gadgets.

Rename the "EasyTools20200526.zip" file to "EasyTools.vgadget" and run the "Install New Gadget..." from the Gadgets menu.

Please let me know if you have any issues.

Re: Easy Dovetail Maker 5.0

Okay,

We have a plan. I will not make the ".vgadget" file. I will let you rename the Zip file to ".vgadget"

Thank you for your help guys!

Watching as I have same issues....
Hi Bill,
Can do a quick test for me?

Rename this file from ".c" to ".vgadget" and try it.

If that fails, rename the file to a ".zip" and open it and look for a ".lua" file and open in Notepad.

Re: Easy Dovetail Maker 5.0

The EasyDovetail.vgadget is a zip file.

I made an error... Rename the file from a ".vgadget" to a ".zip" and open the Zip file and you sould see a ".lua" file inside. you should be able to read the .lua file with Notepad.

One more time please.

Re: Easy Dovetail Maker 5.0

Hi Andy, I am sorry about the data loss. I do not think I can prevent the ini file from being overwritten when updating or reinstalling. But as I think about it, I could add the version number to the folder name. That would address the version updates but would not address any reinstall. I could mo...

I'm trying to put a 1% draft on a hex nut recess in a component. I don't want to add draft to the outside of the component with the nut pocket in it. Do you modelling experts know if it is possible in Aspire to add draft to just an inside recess and not the outside? My goal is to eventually 3D prin...
