Hi grover,

Sorry, but we do not have any documents translated into English or French for Post-Pro Setup

Cheers, Alex

Hello Alex,

We are currently using Vitap point k2 top and planning to have another type of machine that’ll suit our needs.

Anyway, can we ask for your English version on this one? (See attached)

Thanks,

Grover

Hi Grover, 

I use SCM tech Z30 3axis, with multi-spindle drill.

In all CNC machines in wood applications, the precision must by near 0.1mm.

It’s why I give you this part, to do 10mm pre-milling to find where the problem is.

What kind of CNC are u using?

Hello Alex,

May I ask what kind of machine is that? Does it drill at precise coordinates?

Maybe our table saw causes the asymmetries?

Thanks,

Grover

Hi Grover,

In my opinion you will only move the real problem, and block for yourself even more possibilities.

The mirror function is only a temporary solution for a symmetrical cabinet, as soon as you do a slightly more complex cabinet it will not work anymore.

See example attached or the mirror function will then have no use although it remains very basic for the capabilities of the software.

I think it would be best to take a few hours to solve the problem.

Hello Alex,

We just found out that we have a mirror function on our machine. As we discovered, our side panels caused the main problem.

My boss wanted to ask if can we have a universal side panel instead of having 2(Left and right)?

Though it’s possible if we just delete one, either “Left Side_3” or “Right Side_4” but is there any other way we can achieve 1 side panel file on Polyboard?

Thanks,

Grover

Hi Grover,

Sorry we haven’t got a mirror function …

I don’t know how i can help you better…

for test CNC drilling I do 2 parts of this (see attached file TOP) in 19mm

you must have exactly the same distance into drilling between front and back or left and right…

and you should be able to assembly it in all directions

Maybe just one drilling axis has a bad position

Good day Alex,

It seems that setting a reference point is important to us and the only way we can achieve this is through making inverted inputs.

Is there a way we can copy our cabinet in mirror? It’s quite difficult for us to rebuild a new cabinet in inverted view.cry

Best regards,

Grover

Hi grover,

This is used to return a non-symmetrical “Fittings-link”  see example attached

between link into left and right side with back.

Hello Alex,

Thanks for the reply. Yes, we did a 2mm pre-mill for this. 1mm on each side. Perhaps this is not enough?

May I also ask the main purpose of this? (See red square)

Thank you.

Best regards,

If I’ve seen it before! my answer is YES!

Changing a machine reference point is not necessarily obvious for everyone!

So on Polyoard will not do it!

First I would proceed in stages!

Silly question were the parts well put on the machine?

For a question of precision, can you try to make a small cabinet ang Profiling/Calibrating all parts, WITHOUT RETURN PART!
you can use the function, Oversizing on polyboard for your CNC Profiling all part

(It’s what i do all the time! BUT you need to find solution for configure correctly your reference point i you return part for second face!)

that will tell you already this is a problem of reference point, or a bad configuration internal to your CNC

Cheer, Alex

Hello Alex,

Thanks for the reply. Yes, there’s no problem on Polyboard at all. We think it’s all on the CNC reference point in which we think if we could change or set it on Polyboard.

Here’s an example of a problem that we encountered(see attached photos).

Have you experienced the same problem as this?

Hi Grover,

Sorry but I do not see any problem setting in Polyboad, and none in the file that you have attached that are exactly identical except the file name …

Do you control that the position of silk drilling has the right place as specified in Polyboard ?
for example in the left side.

If not, would there not be a shift in the origin of your CNC?

Cheers, Alex

Hello guys,

Is it possible to set the same reference point for these drilling coordinates(TCN file attached)? Is this possible to fix or to set on Polyboard so that all drilling should start in upper front of the panel or anywhere we want to?

Currently, as we tried to assemble our computer table, the left and the right side of the table drillings don’t seem parallel to each other for about 2-3mm difference but asymmetries are quite visible?

Has anyone run into the same problem as ours?

Best regards,
Grover
