Maybe this operation can be changed?

I use phantom toe kicks in my upper cabinets so I can inset the back the thickness of my stretchers/nailers. This is a separate material then my main cabinet box material. If I make ANY changes to the phantom toe kick, for some reason all the part editor cuts I put in the cabinet sides are removed. ...

Re: Two layout projects in one CNC file

Thanks Brad. I'll have to see if I can do this in Shopbot Link. That's my control software.

I want to combine them and nest all the parts from two jobs to optimize material use.

Two layout projects in one CNC file

Is there a way to take two jobs that are put together using layout mode (NOT batch mode) and combine them into one job to go to the CNC? Thank you.

Launch eCabs Minimize Restore - eCab window comes with a minimize, restore down and X button and only partially fills the screen Click restore down button button - get a small eCab window in the middle ...

Re: Error message lacking info

There seem to be a lot of error/information dialogs that pop up that are completely useless to users. I've had this happen many times and had to finally send the whole job to Thermwood so they could figure out what was causing the problem. It would be nice if error/info dialogs contained a cabinet a...

I used to be good at writing VBA scripts for Office products. I've been out of it for awhile. Maybe I could commission someone here?

Re: placing a cabinet back to the side of adjacent

You can select the cabinet, change the placement to Free Style, then rotate the cabinet so it fits where you want it.

Re: Resizing cabinet bug!

I've had this happen MANY times. Don't know what causes it. Guess it's just one of those things I've learned to live with.

Re: Windows 10 Pro Display Issues

I've noted another display issue with eCabs on Windows 10 Pro 64-bit. When I minimize eCabs to the toolbar,from full screen display, then bring it back up again, eCabs is much smaller then the window. I have to first click the Restore Down button, then click the maximize button to get it back to ful...

Feature Change Request

When running the Cutlist model for a job, I output to Excel then do some editing. For 5-piece doors, drawers and user panels, would it be possible to change the output to Excel so that the Top and Bottom rail are together and the Left and Right stile are together? Currently it lists Top Rail, Right ...

Re: Very user unfriendly error

One other thing, I can't get rid of the error dialog, no matter how many times I click on it. I had to Task Manager kill eCabinets, lose my work and start over. Not what I call user friendly when you can't dismiss an error dialog and keep working without losing your work.

Re: Help with Drawer Rear Mounting Brackets

I use rear hanging brackets all the time with undermount soft-close slides. I use left right stretchers that have the bottom of the stretcher locked to the top of the rail on the faceframe that the drawer will go into. When I mount the slides, I just use self tapping screws in the rear bracket. I sp...
