Hi All. Been experimenting with the boxmaker & dogbone generator. My first run yielded tabs and slots that had gaps and did not allow the dogbone to fit snug. I have a few questions for the community to help me narrow down what im doing wrong.
What is the threshold setting for in the dogbone generator?
Do I have to enter the bit size as half of what it actually is?
Do I cut on the line, inside, or outside the shape?
I expect that this is supposed to be like an “allowance” setting that can make the dogbone a bit larger or smaller than it necessarily needs to be. BUT this setting doesn’t appear to do anything at all no matter what I set it to.
Actual bit diameter should be used. (Possibly larger to account for the “threashold” not doing anything IF you need a larger dogbone…)
Outside the Path
Full transparency though, I’ve only used those apps for one project actually… I made 12 Plyo-boxes (not my photo) in 4 different sizes using the box maker classic and the dog bone apps.
