Boxmaker app, tabs

hello all, newbie here.

Box #1 fit together just fine. I changed the size to a larger rectangle box via a newly generated worksheet/box and the tabs arent close. When I compare the tabs and slots on the layout they clearly do not match. Am I missing something?

thanks, Rick

using a 2 x 2 sheet, i used the app to create a box and initiated the carve. all went well until I decided to add some text on the bottom of the box after the carve completed. when i initiated that carve, the box tabs pulled loose and the bit cut a hole through the box bottom. So, I created a second project and copy/pasted the box bottom from P1 to P2 and did the carve on another area of the same piece of wood.

when I took the pieces apart, i ignored the original bottom with the hole and used the sides from P1 with the bottom from P2. This is the one that did not match up. (when i used the P1 bottom, all was fine, abeit with a hole making it unuseable).

So, I guess when I did the copy/paste to the new project the dimensions changed somehow. Maybe I stretched it without knowing it, or maybe the copy/paste didnt pick up the right dimensions, or who knows. The end result is the P2 bottom didn’t fit the P1 sides but the P1 bottom fit the sides perfectly.


I see…

The copy/paste has typically always been flawless for me. I would suspect that the shape was accidentally changed.
