    What is Premilling?

    A Premilling edge-bander removes a specified amount of material from the edged sides of a board.  CabMaster's the part premilling allows parts to be oversized by the amount your edge bander will remove when edging parts.

    E.g a 100mm x 100mm part with 1mm Edging all around will have a cut size of 98mm x 98mm the same part with 1mm premilling will have a cut size of 100mm x 100mm


    Setting up Premilling

    Where to setup premilling

    Premilling can be setup in the Drawing Properties located under Mach. General > Const page in the Premilling group box.

    Premill Edge Thickness

    Enabling this option will always add on the edge thickness to the edged side.

    An edge that is 1mm thick will add 1mm to any side edged with it and a 2mm would add 2mm and so on..


    Premill Thickness


    Premill thickness lets you define a fixed amount to remove from each edged side. This fixed amount will then be added to all edged sides.

    With a 1mm premill thickness 2mm edge tape would add an extra 1mm to edged sides as would a 3mm tape and so on...


    Material Types

    You can specify a separate premilling setting for door type materials and all others.

    Door type materials are materials that can be found when using the "Door" filter located on the Materials-Advanced > Door page.


    Internal Corners

    You can enable or disable premill allowances on edges with an internal corner (e.g the front of a corner shelf) by checking or unchecking the Incl Cnr checkbox:
