Box Gadget for Vcarve Pro Makerspace

Post by kg5ie »

Anyone know if the box creator gadget is not intended to be installed in the Vcarve Pro Makerspace package? Running 10.502

I got a "successfully installed" notification but I get an error message when I attempt to open the gadget.

"Box_Creator.lua
line 1702
(global Display Dialog)
Add Tool Picker: no matching overload found, candidates:

You've installed the wrong version of the gadget. You will get that error if you run the version meant for prior to v10 with v10 or later.

The correct version is here - https://gadgets.vectric.com/V10/box_creator.html

Ok I see what is now. At one point here there was one of the members here that answer post had set up a gadget to do vertical cutting box joints. I had a computer go bad and lost everything on it and have not been able to find it here
Any body know what I am looking for and where to find it . I am running vcpro 10.5

Look in the Gadgets section of the forum - viewforum.php?f=51

All the various dovetails and finger joint gadgets from users are there.

Are you sure it was a gadget to work with vcarve & not a different piece of software. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I believe it was a program that was written by some one name Neil
It also created other joints like dove tails.
He was going to right up a tutorial on how to use it and may a video.
I think

Don't remember that sorry, have you tried a search on the forum using the guys name in the keywors as weli as box joint ?
The only Program I know of personally that does vertical joints was by ger21 from this forum, there was also a program from tailmaker but not sure if that was for vertical work or not.

You've posted about a program like that that you saw on YouTube but the person who wrote that is not on the forum so as was said in the posts when you brought this up before you need to contact the developer via YouTube.

There is a gadget on this forum that will do exactly what you want but you seemed to be mixed up between that and the "official" box maker gadget the last time going by the posts you made on the end of this thread - viewtopic.php?f=51&t=33816 - so I'm not sure if you got that one working in the end.
