Re: Short cuts any thoughts?

Thanks Clint. I thought I had touched on a taboo subject. :D However there is no point just doing it for one user, (We would find it a really useful addition) I thought perhaps others might find shortcut keys useful as well? Do many of you other users on the forum spend much time in the PE and CM? o...

Cabinet editor Saving assemblies question

Multi-save1.jpg Often we create assemblies from various folders, or just copy and paste the same unit within the cabinet editor and modify it. We like to save regularly as occasionally the program ceases to function in the expected manor. (Ecabs has stopped working and will now close) For more clar...

Short cuts any thoughts?

Sunday night wish list :D Kind of a hopeful post, but most drawing and software packages either have shortcut keys assigned or the ability to assign them. As far as I can tell there aren't many in the part editor or any in the Constraints manager, please advise if I have missed something. We have be...

Re: Aspire export/import

Hi Brad
That was why I ordered it with the machine and I thought that was going to happen.
Nevermind. It is what it is.

Re: Aspire export/import

Thanks for that Clint.
I haven't tried any code editing yet.
In fact, I was trying to steer away from even opening that book.
But that is good advice because I was thinking I would be able to do it in the machine controller.
Thanking you
Mark

Re: Aspire export/import

Thanks Guys. All valuable advice! Yes, OK, I didn't realise that you could load a file directly without using control nesting. I may get back to this job in a day or so and hopefully I can get it to work. Slowly getting the hang of it, but at the moment it feels like we are steering a Ferrari with h...

Hi Guys We are just starting to use Aspire software. Aspire has an export menu and we tried / selected the CS 45 NC from the drop down menu This exports a NC file Our machine is a CS 43 so I'm thinking its similar? But the main question is how do we import this NC file into control nesting? Post-pro...

Re: Drill Hole Issues

An update here is that the problem has been identified, But as clint says in the quote below they need the steps to reproduce it. We haven't worked it out either, but are saving more after changes to the cabinets file rather than changing without saving. If anyone else has any insights it could help...

Re: Drill Hole Issues

Thanks Clint. Okay. we will keep that in mind and try changing the tool order. Out of curiosity I have to ask the dumb question. Why doesn't it look for the best tool? Having said that, Why then wouldn't it be best to load the drills into the group settings first? If you or others know to save us gu...

Re: Nest Diagram Inefficiency

Hi Jim We have been using the nesting for a number of years to cut on a panel / slider? saw. On a 20 to 30 sheet job it has more pieces to choose from, and seems to nest much tighter until the last 2 or 3 sheets. In my estimation you might save 1 and a 1/2 sheets on some jobs and others it is tight ...

Re: Issues with corner wall cabinet doors

Hi Clint
We meant to leave the bit about door gaps and door sizes out of the post.
I think that might be a sequence / reveal applied to the wrong side, user issue by us.
Thanks for looking into the graining thing.

Thanking you
Mark

Issues with corner wall cabinet doors

We were adding doors to a wall corner cabinet and came across a grain issue. We were trying to add a double door to the left side of a 3 door wall corner cabinet. We needed the doors to have horizontal grain, but no matter the angle we put in the door dialogue box, the grain kept coming out vertical...
