Frustration with Printing Cut Sheets

Sorry, but it pains me to keep fighting problems that seem so easy for programmers to fix (yes, I have a degree in programming). When the cut lists print the name of the doors always overruns the width dimension. Why can't the doors be renamed to "left door" and "right door" by t...

Yet another Mac Question

Any Mac users up and running? I am holding out for the October release of the new OS version to get min iMac. It is supposed to come with a version of Boot Camp that is very quick. With Apple gaining such a large market share, e-cabs should get compiled for a Mac. Aren't Mac's the computer of choice...

Mike, I tried to load Windows XP on my wifes laptop yesterday. It wouldn't work because I didn't have a post service pack 2 version. You can't install the first generation Windows XP and then update it, it has to be an install disk with SP2 incorporated. I am going to try vmware as suggested here an...

Please, stop chasing all the problems that come with EVERY version of Windows that MS has produced. Build eCabinets for a MAC and it will work for years to come without all these problems. Have you tried to buy a PC with Windows XP on it? It will be nearly impossible very soon even though VISTA is c...

Mike, I tried it with a Mac Book Pro 15\" w/o any upgrades (256M video, 1GB RAM). I used Parallels and it was slow, but worked. I bet you will get fantastic performance using BootCamp. The Mac I was using it my wifes and it works flawlessly for what she needs it to do, so I didn't want to risk ...

Blind Corner Frameless Base Cabinet

Hi guys.
How are you making your blind corner cabs in e-cabs? I did it before, but now when I try to resize my old cabinet or one from the \"standard\" library I get an error like \"the dimension will result in an unstable cabinet\".

Thank you,

Brent Brown

Good tip Michael,
I have used that method before, but forgot about it. I use a lot of panels to account for misc. parts used in building entertainment centers, fillers, supports for crown molding, ...

Easy guys. I am not griping about eCabs. I enjoy it very much and it is the only program I use for my designs, even though I agree with previous posters that the line drawing editor can be cumbersome. Expressing such feelings is providing user feedback and that is how we get the product improved, is...

Get a Mac! eCabs runs great on the Macbook Pro and the Parallels program.
Nice screen shot of Vista. They almost duplicated the look of OS X.

Panel Optimizer

I believe the e-Cabs panel optimizer does a good job of optimizing material, but it isn't so good at optimizing our labor. For example, it might place a 22w x 24h part directly above a 24w x 22h part on a sheet of melamine rather than rotating one of them so I can just take a 22\" slice of mela...

Mike,
it is a pain. KCDW and others automatically adjust the dimensions for you and let you change the level of detail in the dimensioning at any time, so it can be done. It would be great if eCabs would automate the drawings, dimensions and cabinet labels as well.

Angled front corner cabinet doors and hardware

Guys, I have built the angled front corner cabinets a few times and each time a different method was used for various reasons. I like the beveled 12 3/4\" sides that e-cabs uses. The time I used them I was very uncomfortable with the design. I ended up placing a 1.5\" filler to the hinged ...
