Hi Jack,

Dados are grooves that can be set up in the links section or using a manufacturing method:

In the same way you can also set up tongue and grooves, but these are called “mortise and tenons” in the menu:mortise_and_tenons.pngImage Enlarger

Mortise and tenon assembly can be set up in the structures>assembly menus for framed panels:

It’s not possible to set up dove tail joints. You can create the correct overlaps or rebats to have the correct cutting lists but the details of the joints are not calculated nor drawn.

Hope this is helpful.

All the best,

Ness
