Box Making Gadget Toolpath

Post by PeteSeminole »

I would like to make more than the (1) box of the same size that the gadget allows you to make. You can copy the vectors but you can't recalculate the toolpaths, as it says it's toolpaths are imported. Anyone have a worked around or a solution ??

Which Box Making Gadget are you referring to? This one uses standard toopaths that can be recalculated.

Yes, that's the one I meant (I forgot the link). I haven't used it much but every time I have the toolpaths it creates are standard profile and pocket toolpaths that can be assigned to multiple vectors in the usual way.

It will be the dovetail toolpath that is a non-standard toolpathing strategy which cannot be recalculated. The Box creator gadget will be revisted in the near future and i will keep your suggestion in mind,

many thanks

Thanks for the reply Sean. It would be great if you could nest multiple boxes whether they are all the same or different. For my solution I am going to try the dovetail gadget and see if I am able to make multiple copies of the same parts with toolpath geometry
