Cabinet Numbers

I been looking around and cant find a way to identify cabinet numbers in a layout.

How can I find them?
Is there a report or screen I can print to give to an installer so he know what cabs go where?

Thanks

First, Thanks for everyone's response. Sean, When I do as you say with material change, it does not give me a choice to change the end panel. (I have to use an end panel because of using shared sides. If I simply put the end back on the cab the shelves shrink and are not even with the rest. closets!...

Hi Kerry, Yes, the customers in our industry are patent as they participate in the design of their closets. They tell us \"I want so much double hang\" \" I want a shoe rack here\" Using a good library, it should only take about 15 to 20 Min's for the basic design and basic quote...

I guess my post was not too clear. As I said earlier, for display or rendering purpose I am aware of there is a work around. My issue is for costing and cut lists. I have to do 1/2 hours work to get a new price because white cost $20 a sheet and a wood grain cost $28.95. Then another 1/2 hr to chang...

Closet Frustrations

NOTE: This from a custom closet perspective. OK, I have been working on my closet library for 6 weeks now. I'm wondering if I have wasted 300+ hours trying to learn eCabs and build a library. My goal was to have a software product that I could quickly design custom closets at my clients location whi...

Making Material See Through or Clear

When making my Closet library I have run into a few problems. As I use shared sides in my construction and you cant put in stretchers without having 2 sides, I made a material that is .001 thick. This seems to be a good work around until I start changing materials. Is there a way to make the image f...

Changing Materials

Is there any way to speed up changing materials? I am putting together a closet library. To take advantage of the great display capabilities of eCabs I want to be able to show the design in different colors. Currently I change the sheet goods..easy. Then I need to change doors, then drawers, then ed...

Paul, I am building my catalog of different closet cabinets. I may be wrong but I was thinking its best to build a catalog and work from that when doing designs for customers. Playing with the software seemed to back that up. But I am really new to this and need all the advice I can get. Kerry solve...

Todd and Kerry,

thanks for helping me work through this.

That is the way the cabinet is constructed, by unchecking \"has right end\".

Here is a close up of what I'm talking about. If I uncheck show holes the pins disappear but this is still as close as I can place the Cabinet together.

Hi Todd

Here is a pic of what I am talking about.
I tried unchecking visibility/ hole patterns but the space between the cabinets is still there. In other words, when I detail a room there is a gap that represents the KD pins. This does not happen when I use butt construction.

Hi Kerry I found I could scale them individually. This is pretty time consuming when doing 5 to 7 cabs with double hang. I was trying to see if there was a quicker way of accomplishing this. I though about the stretcher method but for presentation purposes would not give the professional image I nee...
