Can someone help me write a simple parametric program to trim/square a cabinet door. I am thinking a simple method would be write a program using vcarve then edit in the variables. I have a fagor controller
I don't think you can do that with v-carve but I could be wrong.
I could write one for biesse works in just a couple of minutes.
Something to think about if you want to trim doors on your router is if you want to run left hand bits to keep from tearing up the corners.
I am wondering if you are looking for code specific for Fagor control. If that is the case I can not help you but envision simple program to rout a rectangle to be pretty easy.
I have done just as you state with Vcarve though many times, although I to have a Biesse machine but not Biesseworks. I have made many sample one off MDF doors using Vcarve and then for production change the pertinent lines of code to paramectrics adding variables if necessary.
Jason is correct in that either tooling, exact tool path strategy or both come into play when squaring solid hardwood doors to minimize tare-out so that can complicate the parametric code.
i created something in the past, with c# ,that keep all lines ,arc
I have written this exact program as a objectarx addin as well as a vb program to output scripts for autocad (works on 2016 and older --- haven't seen 2017 yet) it takes an excell or csv file of door sizes, outputs the door cutlist based upon your stile and rail dimensions and panel spacing. It also generates dxf's of the panels and final sizes of doors.
It produces a sheet of labels with barcodes for your machine, which reference a program to square the door that the panel is inside of.
Alphacam does all the toolpaths through style layer processing.
I wrote this a few years ago. You'll need autocad and alphacam to run it.
