Tab-slot Joint

Tab-slot Joint



The Tab-Slot Joint program (TabSlot command) helps to model one of the typical connections of parts. A row of evenly spaced rectangular tenons (tabs, studs) is created on one part, and slots (dodoes) are cut on the counterpart. Such a connection is used in furniture, POS building products, boxes, and stairs. The connection allows you to connect two parts from any flat sheet: steel, wooden board, MDF, chipboard, plastic, cardboard, sandwich panels, and composite materials. Usually, after joining, the parts are fixed with glue or welding.

Program features

  • The program itself finds the joints of the parts and determines which part is joined by the end, and which by the plane.

  • The program can process many seams at once and can find all seams in an assembly block. One part can be processed from all sides at once.

  • The program always divides the seam into equal steps. The maximum allowable step length is configurable, but the step length cannot be set exactly.

  • You can limit the minimum number of seam division steps and you can force the program to divide the seam into an odd number of steps.

  • You can adjust the depth of the slots and thus the height of the tenons. You can customize the program to cut slots through parts of any thickness. Or tuck the depth of the slots to leave the specified thickness.

  • The program can widen the slots in all directions to allow the tenon to fit freely.

  • You can choose what the program will do in the first step - leave the thrust pad (do nothing), or make a tab slot. This way you can control how the ends of the seam will look.

  • You can also use the program to join parts end-to-end. But the direction of extrusion of the tenons, in this case, is unpredictable.

  • The program is configured in a convenient settings dialog.

  • You can create up to 9 styles of program settings for different occasions and quickly switch between them from the command line.

  • Programs are fully translated into Italian, German, Russian, and Chinese.
