Re: Cutlist Save/open button

I am not sure if this will work for those who can not turn off windows10 auto updates. I have noticed that when I generate the eCabinets cut list it sends it to the temp folder at C:\Users\Public\Documents\Thermwood\eCabinet Systems\temp without having to click on the export button. You could open ...

Re: Cutlist Save/open button

I worked for Microsoft for 7 years. When we got reports of applications not working after an update/upgrade, 99 times out of 100 it was because the application developers had bypassed the application programming interface (API) provided by Microsoft and started making calls to functions that resided...

Re: Cutlist Save/open button

Been searching my computer to the two KB's for Windows 7. Can't find them in Control Panel or in the registration database. Where do you find them to uninstall them?

Thank you.

Frameless cabinet drawer slide installation

I'm trying to add some drawer boxes to a frameless cabinet. eCabs seems intent on adding all the slide mounting holes for the slide. I don't want it to drill all these mounting pilot holes. How do I turn this feature off? This doesn't happen in faceframe cabinets as expected.

Re: Wall Associations

Carmen, That worked on one of the projects. I selected all the cabinets in the project and disassociated from all walls in the project. Then I selected the cabinets I wanted associated with a specific wall and redid the association and it worked. Me thinks eCabs might get a little confused after wor...

Re: Wall Associations

Carmen, thanks for that tidbit. I had no idea about the limits. :beer:

I know I have associated to at least two walls, but I've known eCabs to do stuff, or undo stuff, without my knowing.

I'll disassociate the cabinets with all walls and try to associate again.

Wall Associations

Is it normal that when you select a bunch of cabinets, then select a wall, then select associate cabinets to wall that only a few of the selected cabinets show up when you go from layout editor to a wall view of the selected wall? :wall: I've tried selecting one cabinet at a time to associate and th...

Re: 300+ Stretcher parts I can't label - Shopbot Link

For processing 8 sheets of 3/4” plywood for my stretchers, I think I discovered something. Not sure if it’s a bug in Windows or a bug in SBLink. The stretcher parts were from 3 different jobs (TWD files). When I selected them, I used the Windows feature to click on the first file, hold the shift key...

Re: 300+ Stretcher parts I can't label - Shopbot Link

The sheets I printed out don't represent what is being cut on the plywood. The labels don't even match the sheets. SBLink nested the stretcher parts differently then when I printed the labels. I've got 25 more sheets of plywood for this job (drawer box bottoms, cabinet backs, etc.) and another 250+ ...

Re: 300+ Stretcher parts I can't label - Shopbot Link

An additional piece of information on this puzzle:

The first sheet, of 8, nested perfectly and the labels were right. The 7 subsequent sheets are all nested differently then what the sheets said they should be.

300+ Stretcher parts I can't label - Shopbot Link

There seems to be inconsistencies in the way ShopBot Link does nesting. I brought cabinets into SBLink on last Friday so I could create my part labels and my layout sheets. I did a Y nesting. All good. Printed my labels (300+) and my part layouts sheets (8 sheets). I shut my SBLink computer down for...

Re: Cabinet changes/deleted after CNC

I have had problems with stretcher configurations changes. I make all my stretchers to be M&T at each end. I've had eCabs randomly change to butt joints without my knowledge. Got to cut on the CNC and tenons are missing. End up pocket screwing them in place.

Very frustrating!!
