Re: Mitered Cabinet

Hi Justin Probably need a few details, framed or frameless and perhaps a sketch of how you are thinking the units would sit, there are so many variations. Ecabs is good for drawing anything, sometimes it just take a while to get there. Some options.JPG Some options, but I'm betting you want the end ...

Re: How to update assembly components?

Hi Darren We have been using assemblies quite a bit. We like the ease of manipulation for cabinet alignment, wire framing to check details and adjusting in the CEditor. But with the recent program developments we are experimenting with doing more in custom layout. If I understand correctly? I would ...

Re: Can't have 2 faceframe thickness materials?

Hi Leo I'm not sure if this method would be a useful work around. I don't use the face frame feature but I have found phantom parts to be very useful. (right button menu) If you make one unit and copy it, (save as part 2), then open it back into the Cabinet editor. Change that to your different thic...

Re: Some Part editor questions

Hi Ralph and Daniel
Thanks for the explanations and follow ups.
Knowing a bit more how the constraints are applied and then handled is very useful.
In future I will try and apply shapes in the part editor that more represents what I am trying to do.

Re: Some Part editor questions

Hi Ralph Thanks for testing that out. The radius overlapping the edge is definitely triggering the disappearing dimensions for us. From past experience, it seems to me that the order in which the constraints are applied may influence the results. Yes I agree that the order of placing then moving / c...

Re: I've got a good challenge for the REALLY experienced eCab users here

Hi Ralph :) . Hi Don :) , I wouldn't say talent. I always seem to have a off beat approach. The guys with the real Talent seem to have drifted away. The unit with the shelf cutout has been modified in the part editor. As I said above you have to make a judgment call on which way to do the job. Is it...

Re: I've got a good challenge for the REALLY experienced eCab users here

Hi Donald My approach would be something like this If it was a real job with proper sizes I could get it a lot closer to useful. For a one of, its probably not worth the time. If there were 10- 15 of, yes it would be. For a quick solution I would cut this much on the machine then finish it with a pa...

Re: How do I stop being thick?

Hi Al I wish I had special knowledge on how to do that. As far as I know, it just came out of the box set that way. Perhaps its a default setting depending on which version of windows we are using?

Re: How do I stop being thick?

Thanks Thomas, good tip,
For metric users though, if I was using meters it still reads wrong.
If you wish to display comas, 12102 should be 1210.2 or even 1,210.2
