The arrows indicate the drop-down menus that you can use to refine your selection. The cross allows you to delete and reset the settings.

Then clicking on the edges tab, you will be able to define the different characteristics of your edge-banding and especially the colour and sizing of the material.

Step #4: CNC machining –Hinge holes & Grooving

Once you have entered the type of panel board, the length, width, quantity of parts to be cut including edging, you can further determine the machining to be carried out on the part. You have up to four machining options for each part i.e Machining1, Machining 2, Machining 3 and Machining 4. Each machining has several CNC operations as demonstrated below:

  • Malpha Hinge holes
  • 32mm drilling
  • Pocketing
  • Circles
  • Grooving

The dimensions for CNC operations in each machining can be determined parametrically by adjusting the sizes and location of the machining in Parameter 1, Paramater 2, Parameter 3 and Parameter 4. For example if you need a groove on any parts which is 18mm away from the edge and with thickness of 3mm. You select Groove from either of the machining 1,2,3 and 4. Then you click on the grid in the parameter column and pop-up dialogue box will appear.  Key in the dimensions as that you would desire we cut for you. See the highlighted example below.
