Re: Loghouse parts

I know this trimming function, but it's very time wasting solution. Small garden house and it needs ~200 cuts.

Loghouse parts

Hello there

When I do loghouse - then walls first and after that doors and windows, which cut holes into the wall. Bad thing is, cutted log is one part, not left and right side with correct length. Is there any solution for that?

Re: "part positioning on machine" preview window

I've tried several times to pass reseller to get better answers, but nothing. Looks like knocking head to the concrete wall. Luckily TS have in 90% cases workaround. In Your case about positioning - make parts with positioning and put them to library and take them from there. Left side, right side, ...

Re: default constrained block thickness

There is no documentation about those settings. I got this solution from my reseller, who is working with TopSolid Wood around 15y and they have 200+ users. One place what You can do is check this file: top_ex.cfg. It's in several languages and You can take some good commands to Your cfg file. Just ...

Re: default constrained block thickness

Hello yes it is. $TOPCONFIG\V6XX\topzwoo.cfg D_SH_BLOCK_CONSTRAINT_THICKNESS 0.016 0.016 is in meters. If it doesn't work, try to add it some other cfg file. By the way, I am using always parametric thickness for elements. Never know, when someone want to replace it for some other material and then ...

Re: "part positioning on machine" preview window

Hi there TSW is based on very old structure and new structure will come out 2021 (hopefully). Maybe there will be lot of new and good things. Most of windows are suitable for 19" screen and working with 27" 2560*1440 screen looks like gynaecologist :) Only 2y ago they changed some windows stretchabl...

Re: Opticut help

Hello BOMs are in Your template folder and You can modify them or create new from scratch. For Indexing I prefer to make new one from scratch and You have to know that each column in Indexing will put more data into Indexing and with large data it can be big mess. For simple use I have Detail design...

Re: Opticut help

Hello Davy I know that situation. You need to use Filter command when creating BOM. It means, You will filter edges and furniture (hardware) off and creating BOM only for those parts, which are going to saw. You may need to show which sides are edgebanded, but its another case.

Re: driver block error

One more thing. If I take components from Internet or local libraries, then I transform them to my own CS to avoid that error later. Or when I use key-points, then I create my own CS for them.

Re: driver block error

Hello it's an old thing from "stone age" when driver block weren't born yet. To avoid this error, make Your own template. New file, create new CS (You can name it as "my CS" or smth) and put Abs CS to last layer or smth to hide it forever. And work with Your new CS. Sadly, sometimes that error may c...

Re: Remove Trim Operation on Group of Parts from Propagation

Yes.. sadly they are not grouped. I think here is no option to delete them all at once. Can You make contour without cutting later?

Re: Remove Trim Operation on Group of Parts from Propagation

Hi

Can You delete this curve? Parts will give an error, but You select all errors and delete them all.
Last question - it's better to see full project to give better answer.
