Re: Diagonal corner cabinet problems

Not sure why but change if you change your blind dado placement from 2.19" to 2.25" it will fix your cabinet. That is a strange solution, but it works! I had set those blind dado insets to remove the tab created at the back of the shelf (and the top and deck, incidentally) and never looke...

Diagonal corner cabinet problems

I have this cabinet that displays correctly, but does not nest or cut correctly. The top, deck, and fixed shelves are nested and defined to cut as pieces that are only a quarter of an inch wide, despite being correctly displayed in ECabS. Not sure how to remedy, or if I'll have to design this again ...

Re: Re-nest specific material

I almost always nest only one material at a time, for this reason. I use the material selection filter shown in the previous post by Ian. On larger jobs the nest for just the cabinet shells can take a few minutes. If I add the drawer-box material to the nest at the same time, then it will take forev...

Re: Cutlist Save/open button

I've reinstalled windows, and updated the version to the latest. It seems to have fixed the problem. Not sure exactly what happened, I'd been through all the utilities to repair and restore the windows updates, guess it just needed a clean slate. Hope the MS gremlins are held at bay in any future up...

Re: Cutlist Save/open button

I was unable to get any of these windows updates to fix the problem. Also, many of the updates would not correctly uninstall, and were immediately reinstalled by win10. Even my last system backup point was corrupted, so I have been unable to restore the export function. It seems my only option is to...

Re: Cutlist Save/open button

Wondering if there has been any movement on this. It seems like MS has washed their hands of the problem, the tech support that I contacted @ MS had narrowed the problem down to a likely bum reference in ECabS. Is someone still pursuing the fix for this?

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: 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...
