A Note About Display Fronts

Unless I'm missing something, I can't select the display fronts on this cab in the LDE, so I can't check their dimensions or fit with other parts. You can see that the lower drawer front that was installed as a regular drawer is selectable and I added a dimension to it, but the top drawer front isn'...

Re: Sink Drawer Cabinet Construction Suggestions (part 1)

I hadn't thought of adding a cab to another cab Carmen. Assemblies are something I haven't use a lot, but they're definitely helpful. Didn't realize they had 'consequences'. As an occasional user I like to review and record my steps, like I've just finished up for this cab, and I'm feeling the nause...

Re: Sink Drawer Cabinet Construction Suggestions (part 1)

Brilliant Carmen! It never ceases to amaze me at the ways people find to make software do WTF we need it to. As with most things Ecabs, working in Contour mode is about as intuitive as teaching my dog to fly a plane. But thanks to you I was able to get the bottom cutout as required, and can even rep...

Sink Drawer Cabinet Construction Suggestions (part 2)

1st Problem: Drawers in Cabinet When I build the cab with a partition to mount the drawer slides on for the two lower drawers, it won't let me add a single drawer above it. Cab with Partition.png And if I build the cab with a vertical stretcher instead of a partition, it won't let me add two drawer...

Sink Drawer Cabinet Construction Suggestions (part 1)

It looks like I'm limited to adding 4 attachments to a post so I'll break this up into multiple parts. I'm hoping some of you more seasoned Ecab vets will have some ideas on how to solve this one. I need to build a vanity sink base that looks like it has 6 drawers, but the two top drawers are actual...

Re: cross section view

I too was wondering why it's in the right-click context menu in the Line Drawing Editor but greyed out! Kinda like a big tease. Why not just remove it from that menu in the LDE if it doesn't work there anyway?

Re: How to update assembly components?

Thank you Mark & Tim, I appreciate hearing your thoughts. After reading them I can see that, once again, there are many different ways to use eCabs, and that I could have explained mine a little better. Mark: When I 1st started using eCabs I took a couple of pokes at CL (custom layout) and soon ...

How to update assembly components?

Howdy all, I'm interested in your two-cents worth. I'm wondering if/how anyone out there uses assemblies? I'm sure there's some of you, and I'd be interested in hearing your take on them and what you use them for. Here's my scenario/motive: I'm preparing to build an island composed of multiple cabs....

Re: Calculating Cubic Feet

I appreciate you sending me this Jeremy, but I know HOW to calculate cubic feet, I'm looking to see if there's a way to get this info out of eCabs. Possibly a custom spreadsheet that somehow gathers each cabinet's size?

Calculating Cubic Feet

Hey guys, anyone know how to get the total cubic feet of a cabinet or batch of cabinets so that I know how much space they'll need in the truck?

Re: Grain Match on multiple adjacent cabinets?

I'm glad to hear that you're going to try and have it added in the future Scott, but how do I proceed right now? I thought I could at least cut each cabinet individually and the SBL would nest the fronts appropriately, but as you can see below, it doesn't want to place the drawer front above the doo...

Re: Grain Match on multiple adjacent cabinets?

Actually, only some of the fronts appear in the SBL nest. Here's a few pics to show you what I'm seeing. 1) The 3 cabinets saved as an assembly in EC (with grouped parts/fronts). 1.jpg 2) The EC nest diagram correctly nests the fronts of the assembly. 2.jpg 3) But only 4 fronts are nested in the SBL...

Re: Grain Match on multiple adjacent cabinets?

So, back in April when you told me about this Rick, I tried it and took a look at the nest diagrams and everything looked fine. So I bid the job as if I could sequence the fronts. But now I'm actually trying to create and send a TWD file to my ShopBot link for cutting and it doesn't seem to give a d...
