How to use Nest-Fix with Mini-fix cams and Blum connectors
There are 2 types of CNC manufacturing
Traditional point to point
So...with nesting you cannot use Mini-fix cams as normal because you cannot edge drill.
Current nesting hardware solutions are limited - although they do not require edge drilling, they are:
All current nesting hardware limitations are addressed allowing the use of a traditional Mini-fix embedded in the panel
Price: £40 per 100, plus £140 for the Nest-Fix 12mm milling bit + standard delivery charges and VAT if applicable
How to use
3 axis CNC machining
Using Polyboard or a similar design software the hardware machining patterns are placed along the edges of the cabinet parts.
The individual parts are nested onto the sheet materials using OptiNest or a similar nesting program and the nesting map is loaded into a CAM software like VCarve to produce the machine files.
In the CAM software tool path organisation the Nest-Fix "T" slots are cut before the part outlines so that maximum vacuum hold down is maintained.
