Being able to place tabs where I specify, how many tabs to use and how thick they should be would be awesome
Updated title and category to make thread more accessible.
I agree with this, it would also be nice to specify the thickness of the tab i.e. 4 tabs in these locations and 1/8" thick.
Agreed. Put in a 1/2" circle in 0.3mm copper to cut all the way through and you end up with four small holes and the rest is all tab
So some form of optimisation in Easel or manual placement would be great.
I believe that this is in the works by @JeffTalbot, but can’t really comment on timeframe yet!
Yes, this is in process. Here’s a sneak preview:
You’ll be able to:
- See where tabs will be made
- Position tabs anywhere on the profile
- Add/remove tabs
- Specify tab width
- Specify tab height
awesome! easel keeps getting better and better!
That looks great
This would be one of my dream features for Easel @JeffTalbot … Any chance to get early access / test it out?
Any time frame for this to come out?
I’d love to test this out as well. I’m running into problems with the default tab height/width in dense woods (hickory, purpleheart) where I have to saw through a super narrow channel in order to pop out the cut.
Any chance to become a beta-tester of this function? … This is exactly the function I need!
Sorry, I was on vacation last week. The feature is still under development–not quite ready for beta testing yet. It’s kind of a personal project–not one of our top priorities–but I hope to have it finished up some time in the next couple weeks.
Welcome back, I hope you enjoyed it
I just have to be patient then
The reason I am so focused on this function, is that it makes my work alot easier.
I am cutting all the way through the material, and the current tabs are just a pain to remove and still keeping the finish
The material is “kydex”.
Every Belt slide has 12 tabs because of Easel puts 4 tabs on every piece … takes a fair amount of time to remove them and it is not good for the final finish.
I am really looking forward to the “tab” upgrade to Easel @JeffTalbot
These look interesting, what are they? And what material did you use?
It’s almost ready for early access. Not much longer now…
Yay, this will be a great addition to easel!
It is belt slides for pistol holsters.
It is made out of .125" Kydex - very tough material!
