Re: Cutlist Save/open button

I am not sure if this will work for those who can not turn off windows10 auto updates. I have noticed that when I generate the eCabinets cut list it sends it to the temp folder at C:\Users\Public\Documents\Thermwood\eCabinet Systems\temp without having to click on the export button. You could open ...

Re: Is there a way to make doors with sheet stock panels ?

Thanks for the answers all! I am guessing you can't get a layout of the best way to cut the panels from a 4' X 8' sheet good like you can for all of the other parts of a cabinet ? seems a bit strange but ill go with it :) If your doors and fronts are all the same material they will nest together on...

Re: Working with eCabinets cut list in excel

Hey Guys. I have started a new video series where I demonstrate how to build an excel workbook to export Items into the batch area. If you use the batch area often you may find this very useful. I will show how to use excel power query AKA get and transform to create a dynamic link to the ecabinets...

Re: Cutlist - export to excel link not showing

I've tried each of those uninstalls, except that all my updates start with 401 instead of 404. Even the restore point failed, so I'll have to wait on the software wizards. :!:

Re: Cutlist - export to excel link not showing

Seems to be windows update that messed this up. Thermwood is working on a temporary fix I guess. I've tried everything to roll back the update and/or use an older system restore point, but nothing has worked. This loss of functionality is super frustrating, but I think Microsoft is to blame for it. ...

Cutlist Save/open button

Must be Monday. I opened ECabS this morning, altered an existing cabinet, then saved it as a cabinet in its job folder. I wrote the TWD file from the little CNC button in the cabinet edit toolbar (left, on-screen) then tried to generate the cutlist from the create cutlist toolbar icon. Up pops the w...

Re: Multiple part editor cuts

Clint,

Thanks for the suggestion, that is an approach that would work in this case. So simple, I can't believe I didn't see that solution myself! :oops: That's why this forum is here. :beer:

I wonder if this is something the developers would find worthy of attention in their next release.

Multiple part editor cuts

Is there a way to gang cut partitions? I'd like to cut all the partitions in a cabinet (84 of them!) using the part editor, WITHOUT taking each one into the part editor individually.

Post processors for Aspire

I recently began helping a friend use his new desktop CNC which he bought with Vectric Aspire. His files post fine (CamMaster), but If I try to post to one of the Thermwood PP's it errors out on my machine. I am using a CS43 5-12. Is there a post processor specifically for this machine? The PP's on ...

Re: can't get gap between doors when stacking vertically

Try putting your doors on before you set the fixed shelves. So long as you know what the height is you can tell it how big you want your doors. I haven't been able to do it successfully the other way round.

Re: Warm up Program

Thanks, Clint! I wonder why this type of program is not included with the q-core? Seems like a prudent addition and one that costs literally nothing to put in the package. :beer:
