Offcut usage

We love the use of offcuts in the library of common used materials mainly for carcass construction but we tend to have a lot of material left over from seen face jobs and packing sheets. These are a rainbow of colours.We tend to use these up for drawer box backs, bottoms, undercounter oven sides and...

Blum Tandembox drawer front

With wide drawers the only attachment is the brackets holding the front to the drawer side. Really anything over 600mm 24" seems to need a fixing to the bottom of drawer. We use a small L shaped light gauge metal bracket which looks a bit handimanish. I was wondering how other Ecabinet users di...

Re: NEED TO HAVE AN AUTO SAVE FEATURE TO MINIMIZE LOST WORK

My Cabnetware program does this autosave and has saved my bacon many times. The setup allows many options like save the last action to as many actions you want to pass then save. That autosave program doesnt seem to effect the performance but with Ecabinets being different it may do. If thats the ca...

Re: Mixing jobs in nesting

Thanks Guys for your input. The aim of the game is a quick glance at the appearance of the label when the part it retrieved from the sorting bench after being pushed from Thermwood to know what pigeon hole the part goes in for edgebanding, then carted for assembly. You could read each part but the f...

Re: Mixing jobs in nesting

Thanks Thom, I may not have your explaination clear but they do batch the cabinets for room "Kitchen" for example of Smith but I would like to batch Smiths Kitchen, two Vanity and Laundry cabinets together. The nightmare happens working out that you have four cabinets titled one for Smith ...

Mixing jobs in nesting

I was wondering how other firms overcome the mixing of jobs. For example, same client but Kitchen, two bathrooms and a laundry cabinets. My staff are saying its a nightmare to sort the parts to rooms then per cabinet so they prefer to cut one room at a time. To me, more parts better recovery of mate...

Re: A cardboard box

We also do flat pack jobs but we havent worked out how big to make the box till everything is packed.
Is there software that can work out the size of the crate and weight.
If you could share your proceedure for making these boxes that would be of interest.

Blum TandemBox slide including the 10mm front fixing holes

Hi Everyone, I am just changing from Hettich drawers to Blum and was wondering if someone is willing to send there drilling patterns for Blum TandemBox slide including the 10mm front fixing holes. It would be good to have a system that has been fine tuned on actual cabinets. We do the euro / framele...

Re: Beaded panels in doors.

Hi Kerry, Yes I might have to talk to Brad. The feature I would like is the machining of hinges and drawer mounting plate to be done and handles drilled. These are done manually by us with a different door program so I can do these door patterns but can't automate it as far as I would like. I will h...

Re: Beaded panels in doors.

I would be interested in manufacturing these. Can the hinge holes and handle holes also be drilled from Ecabinets Data. The drawer fronts cut with patterns to match doors and drilled to suit metal sided drawer fittings? Once again from Ecabinets data?

Re: YouBuild status

RIP Well thats sad as I would liked to have gotten involved in that. I wonder how it would work being web based instead of at a shop front? There is a couple of firms here in Australia who sell mainly to cabinetmakers not retail clients who have a online cabinet ordering system the same as youbuild....

YouBuild status

I have been interested in how the YouBuild concept would work but there doesn't seem much information on the forum since 2012? Is the program still running and has it been sucessful? I was hoping may have expanded to Australia if it was going well.

Re: Cut centre doors

Thanks Josh for the input. I had hoped this cut centre would have been a shift in position with door profiling which does require direct control of the tool path rather than modelling for fast product production. With our current software it can take a hour to cut 8 recessed pattern doors 720 by 450...

Re: Cut centre doors

Thanks Josh with your offer. We use another door program that fits in with the Thermwood creating direct G code. It would be good if it came from Ecabinets though so the label and optimising is done by the control. The door designs we use are like this. http://modernformdoors.com.au/door.htm design ...
