The CNC I have, the router will go past the front of the frame allowing for a jig to be attached.to it
This would allow for wood to clamped wood in the vertical position and cut box joints or dovetail joints on the end of a board.

Well Jim I downloaded the file and installed it
But I can't get it to figure out how to use it.
So I did the job set up then the boxmaker screen come up with numbers in all 3 of the boxes if I try to change any of them another screen come up that says Default Contents.
So what am I doing wrong
I used o.65 for X
5.0 for Y
and 10.75 for Z
a video on how to use it would be great.
Thanks Jeff

Hi Jeff,

I made some Box-Joints the other day and the Mill is still setup so I will make a video on how to use the Gadget and how the material is positioned and cut. He made any day or so to get a tripod and some lighting in the shop but I will do my best to get it done this week.

Thanks!
Thanks,
Jim

That's a different gadget. Jim's is the BoxJointMaker not Box_Creator.

That error message is from the Box Creator gadget on the Vectric gadgets page and you're getting that error because you've installed the wrong version for the version of VCarve you have.

The correct download for your version is here - http://gadgets.vectric.com/V10/box_creator.html
