Latest Update Summary

We are constantly adding new features and abilities to the Award-Winning Cut Ready Cut Center.  Our latest update now gives you:

  • The ability to create stair stringers and free-standing stairs
  • Merge materials for a more efficient nest
  • Specify whether your material is sheet stock or board stock (with a whole host of options for each type)
  • Add sheets as off-fall even if they weren't created from the Cut Center
  • Resize the height on face frame base cabinets (while maintaining proper drawer front heights).

Stair Stringers

The Cut Center now has the ability to create Stair Stringers, and free-standing stairs. 

Stair Stringers are now available in the Thermwood Cut Center

Merge Materials

This ability originated with the stair stringers development (you can nest treads, risers or stringers out of the same material, providing a more efficient nest), and this solution was so useful that it was implemented throughtout the entire system.

You may now merge materials to nest treads, risers or stringers out of the same material.

New Material Properties

We’ve updated the materials page to allow the user to specify whether their material is Sheet Stock or Board Stock (which affects direction of cut, feed speeds, and cut depths).  This allows you to make Solid Wood Drawer Boxes.

You can also specify if your material has identical sides (such as premium plywood), or if they are different (such as melamine that has 2 colors).  In the melamine scenario, the Cut Center will maintain all of one color to the inside of the cabinets.

For users who do not use material with grain (melamine, mdf, etc.), you can now turn grain off, resulting in a more efficient nest.

You may now speicfy whether your material is sheet stock or board stock.

Add Off-Fall Sheets not created in Cut Ready

Prior to this update, you could only add off-fall created from previous jobs by using a barcode and scanner.  This update allows you to add rectangular off-fall that was not created from the Cut Ready system, and use it just like you would regular off-fall.

You may now add rectangular off-fall that was not created through Cut Ready to your job.

Resize the Height on Frace Frame Base Cabinets

We now allow users to change the height of Face Frame Base Cabinets while maintaining proper Drawer Front Heights.

Thermwood Five Axis Alignment Verification Routine

Thermwood has developed our new Five Axis Alignment Verification Routine which is used to record and populate the alignment measurement values into the Thermwood QCore control system (after machine alignments are manually performed).  

This routine automatically checks alignment in multiple axes and allows alignment to be quickly verified between jobs.  The routine compares the measured values to the default values.

The Thermwood 5 Axis Alignment Verification Routine includes:

  • Renishaw high-tolerance tooling sensor
  • Precision ground pin
  • Dedicated tool holder
  • Collet and all mounting hardware.
