8mm diameter long cutting flute cutter: 8mm collet
Before you start you will want some long cutting flute cutters: These 8mm shank ones do the trick: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32779806096.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.4bbe4c4d91G4Hx To use this cutter you will also need to by the 8mm collet for Origin: https://www.amazon.com/Festool-488755-8mm-Collet-Nut/dp/B0017VBLH2 Create the cabinet fixture ( designed it to be made out of 3/4 material ), you can cut the aluminium tabs with an 1/8" oflute cutter, but 1/2" ply might work as a substitute, as long as Origin fits between them. https://www.shapertools.com/hub/creators/5b437481a92ce901517c0655/shares/5bff2b64d4361d0017606095 once completed, Place the fixture in the corner of the cabinet, scan the tape field use the grid feature to identify the reference edges. and place the appropriate file in that corner. https://support.shapertools.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000282573-Placing-a-Design-in-a-Scanned-Workspace then with the 8mm cutter installed cut the pockets the depths are identified in the file and the little arrow shows the refernce corner to align to the grid. note: the offset from the edge is hard coded in the files at 3mm i believe, I can adjust them to be whatever offset you require.
