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: 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...

Re: An Active Forum is a Strong Forum

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...

Re: Calc countertop sq ft

Hi Donald. Yes I see what you mean. I dont know of a way. We dont use the countertop section for various reasons. The way we do it is to create a material for benchtops. We then use a standard cabinet with only the top remaining. You can set it up as per job requirements with benchtop joins. or Ofte...
