True Dovetail Nesting

Post by JMBfestool »

I would like a gadget which can generate and apply tooling to the vectors generated to make nested dovetails.

Using specialist tooling from Vortex as an example.


I would pay for this gadget to be added to aspire 8.5!

Not following what is that you can do with the existing software in that case. If the vectors already exist and you're using a tool to machine them what would you want the gadget to do?

Unless I dont know how to do it I cant without alot of work do blind nesting dovetails.

I want the gadget for me to be able to input in draw box overall size and height and it then generates the correct vectors for me to the tool using vortex or better still it generates the tooling for you

Ok. I got the impression from your first post that the vectors already existed. There is a dovetail gadget on the main gadgets site that uses conventional tools. That would give you an idea of how the actual layout of the dovetails would most likely need to work for anyone developing a gadget for you.
