Interlocking modules

Post by blue0cean » Wed Jun 03, 2020 3:21 pm

Hi,

it is possible the values:
Thickness tolerance
Laser beam diameter
Dog bone hole

adapt in an ini file. I used the web for my klene router and it would be very practical if you could adjust these pre-assignments.

Hello,

Hello, I'm the developer of this interlocking module and I am going to watch what I can do.
Just for information, what is a klene router?

"klene" is a translation error by Google Translator. it should be called a small milling machine.
Looking forward to the result.

I try to build a box, I noticed that the box created in Lasercut Interlocking is rotated by 180 ° around Z in the room. That means left panel is on the right side face panel is on the back right panel is on the left and hand panel on the front. Is that ok or am I doing something wrong? The box mentioned is in the appendix.

only a feature would be if you could select the box components such as without a lid. Now it is so when you create the box via Preview and then delete the lid, it is reinserted when you click Ok.

Dear execuc, thank you for this useful module!

I see negative tolerances and laser diameter are forbidden there. However, I am making interlocking connections of steel, and order laser cutting at outsourcing company. Their software automatically considers laser ray diameter and we get (almost) exactly the same size as in DXFs. Moveover, some artifacts of cutting and oxide layer make part edges even a bit thicker than model, so I have to use a hammer to assemble them. This, definitely, is not the best manufacturing practice :? .

Thus if you could allow negative values there, this can expand scope of the Interlocking workbench usability. I suggest users will rarely set negative values by mistake, but if they will, there can be some checkbox to forbid it.
