Round hole in desk but straight cut planks

Recommended Posts

When you convert your cad circle to a polyline it will ask how many sides you would like and you should increase that number until you are satisfied with how smooth the cut is.

I think that's a flaw in how Chief cuts the hole. If I wanted smooth, I'd use a solid set 1/16" above the surface.

Eric, I think you are correct but I could not remember why I have chosen not to use that tool in the past.  I think there is a little false advertising in the KB article and that should be sent in as a bug.  Last time I did a tree cut out I replaced all the affected boards in the deck with p solids, such a pain.

Thanks guys. I know now to stop fighting with it. I'm fine with using solver's solution.
