It wouldn’t lift to the safety height until it got below the tab height (in this case 1/8" from the bottom).
Lifting to safety height is not ideal, but I think the advantages of having movable tabs is worth the additional time it would take.
Any chance that it would be possible to set a job specific safety height?
I am only cutting plastics that are 2 or 3 mm thick - so option 1 would be fine with me.
Allen, if you go to Machine, Advanced, you can set the safety height to a minimum of 0.1mm if you need to. But it’s a project specific change.
I think pushing the release back a week is a small price to pay to have a more refined feature. Any time savings is always my number one priority!
This feature has been released. See this forum post:
Please change the color of the tabs! I and others can not see red on a black back ground.
Would this be better?
Quick mockup @chrisbalin threw together.
Hey @BryanKlotz , we changed the color and its live!
Looks great! I have never been able to see red on black unless it is backlit. Really appreciate it!
@BryanKlotz No problem! I’m red/green color blind and it was a bit difficult for me to see, too. So I welcome this change!
Any updates on specifying the number of tabs? It’s going to be difficult to make a couple of my next projects with limited tabs.
@Rusty - I think this will be coming out very soon.
Easel now lets you change the number of tabs:
You can click the up/down arrows or type in a value. Right now it restricts the range to 1-16 per object, and it will regenerate all tab positions when the value is changed.
oh man you guys are the best! Made my night!
I saw that new tick box last night around midnight.
Thank you! Can’t wait to try this new feature this weekend :).
How come I don’t see the “use tabs” option when I select an object?
