The wall length updates in the length window as I drag, When I am ove...

Re: Drawer resize

Hi JR I am having problems adding drawers behind doors, so not existing but still curious. I don't use this area much so it could be just me and there seems to be quite a few things I am doing wrong. I am using a partition, it also says it can't find the material. I have part editor cuts which it as...

Re: Double Panel Doors

Hi John I'm not sure if I am interpreting your question the right way as I often misunderstand. :? It depends on what you are trying to do, If you just want drawings to work from or sell from, or screen to machine type scenario. For us setting up librarys seems easier than using the Connestoga or Th...

Re: new to Ecab needs help get training

Hi Gary Welcome to the Forum. If I understand you correctly and the way I interpret it, fully doweled construction is going to be a mixture of Flatbed CNC and dowel machine. If thats the way you do it, and it has to be that way, you probably have to work around that method. ECabs comes with lots of ...

Re: MDF shaker doors

The way we handle them was to make a library of cabinets with MDF doors, add pockets and constrain them in the part and node editor. So there are 10 or so basic cabinet variations. The cabinets are resizable. For panels we use an end, so if you place it in a room it aligns to the back, but often we ...

Re: Angle part

Hi Rob. My take. I couldn't see the angle or really understand what you were referring to until I had been messing with an idea and eventually saw the angled front frame in your cabinet. So I had been messing with what I thought you meant. Perhaps it might be useful? I deleted the back and made the ...

Re: Control nesting loaded material board sizing

Thanks Clint. It would be a good one to get fixed. :D It always happens on the first sheet of a nest. The one with all the flip ops. :? So you miss the first one, get a new sheet, apply size change, forget to do it twice to make it apply, cut, slap forehead and go duhhhh, I am so dumb, get another s...

Nesting a large number of small pieces

In the attached photo we cut 120 of these at a time, (The pieces we use are removed and this is the waste) Control nesting seems to get to about 100 pieces and then says this is all too hard, I'll just stickem where I can. The yield goes down a little bit once the grid like nesting drops off. Does t...
