Searching for materials in groups

I have quite a few materials. In ecabs materials might be separated into different sheet sizes for ordering , 5 to 10 or more different materials with different colours, grain, tool breakthrough,tool speeds, thicknesses and to suit KD fittings etc. The reason for having these materials is to have di...

Re: Cabinet with angled ends or tops

Here is another example of a angled cabinet.
Takes a bit of working out but if you need to do it, you can.
This cabinet is part of a different job which doesn't have doors but I put some on just to illustrate the possibilities

Fare thee well Neville

It has come to my attention that we lost a member of our forum back in May.
Neville Bastion passed away in his sleep from a brain hemorrhage.
He will be missed by the cabinetmaking community.

Re: Is it possible to download thermwood super control to my normal pc for testing

Hi Nicholas Nice looking door. I was curious to see how it would go with our tool set up because I had some troubles before on a similar profile. Clint and the guys spent a lot of time to help us sort it out. I ran one on an off cut as a test to see how it would go. Because it was a off cut I didn't...

Re: Cabinet with angled ends or tops

I should have mentioned in the post above, while you can add a vertical stretcher like a partition, as far as I can determine, you can only rotate it in one dimension, that being while looking at the front of the cabinet it behaves like a revolving door into a building. The same situation with a par...

Cabinet with angled ends or tops

Its been asked a few times if its possible to angle sides or tops of cabinets. I have to do a cabinet for an under stair situation and came up with a method by using stretchers. Stretchers are a wonderful tool and with a bit of practice you can do some amazing things. The main thing to think about i...

Re: An Active Forum is a Strong Forum

Hi Guys Can you get the same result? I have attached 2 cabinets because they are too big to upload as an assembly 1) load both units into the cabinet editor 2) select either cabinet and global modify any sheet material and replace with new material of the same thickness. Select either cabinet . Use ...

Re: Top shelf looses alignment points

I persisted with this corner one, because it seemed to have come good, I had put a fair bit of time into it already, and didn't want to restart from scratch. However I forgot to monitor it at the machine. And even if I had noticed the missing info we have to get the job out anyway. And redoing it wo...

Re: An Active Forum is a Strong Forum

Hi Donald Cint has saved the bacon again. :) Clint sent me an email saying the top drawer behind the doors is messed up. One of those gremlins. I haven't touched that drawer since I designed the cabinet 2 months ago. Don't know why it all of a sudden lost its brains..... Yes its those things that co...

Re: An Active Forum is a Strong Forum

Hi Stuart (After working through similar problems in eCabS, I too can attest to the absolutely USELESS error messages. If the dialog told me what damn rabbit to chase, then I would gladly do it. As others had stated, It's usually operator error, and all you need is a clue about which part or operati...

Re: An Active Forum is a Strong Forum

(When I am in the Design phase, I will usually just tough it out, redraw, redo, what ever it takes. Change software if necessary.) Sounds pretty much what I do :) (Since I no longer try to import dxf files into control nesting.) I still do import DXF's. Yes, they can and do give problems. but 80% o...

Hi Donald
I get the same error message when nesting your unit.
When I remove part editor cuts from the entire cabinet it nests.

Re: An Active Forum is a Strong Forum

Hi Donald. Thats good I think posting the messages helps. Also posting the cabinet here if you don't mind sharing the design. (Some cabinets can be special and have hours of design put into them so I can fully understand not wanting to) If others are then interested in testing the unit and reporting...

An Active Forum is a Strong Forum

Just curious Lately we are having some flops. Cabinets or assemblies are fine up to a certain point then, information drops off or out of the file. Sometimes its on a new design, some times its on single cupboards and other times its on assemblies, sometimes it seems to be on month or older file tha...
