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 ...

Re: Cut centre doors

Hi Josh, We did try out modelling to do a square raised panel look door 300mm by 300mm in mdf a few years back which I think took over a hour. To do a full kitchen set that might take us 3 days so we gave it a miss. Surely Cut centre would not take that long as who could afford to use it? Maybe afte...

Cut centre doors

I was reading the Thermwood blog on the new cut centre. I was wondering if any of those features were going to be ported into Ecabinets? The one that interests me is the mdf door option stated as being "MDF doors are high-end designs that replicate quality five piece doors. They are made using ...

Re: CNC Cutters

Hey Jason you better not write that advert. I have had a few tools work for me over the years but not sure if they would make good cutter salesman? Marius best of luck with a better source of product supply. We have paid high dollars for tooling over the years to find a lower cost one out performs i...

Re: Cabinetshop 43 or 45?

Hi Greg, We have a mtr with a dill head. At one stage we were having alignment issues so were forced to use the one head to do all things till we found the issue. I say we'd save about 10 to 15 % of time with the drill head. Kerry is right though if your volume is low and your machine is idle for a ...

Re: Vacuum Pump for my C53

We run two 250cfm pumps. I was wondering if anyone has the CN software switch from one pump to two pumps when the parts are released? Not sure if this is built into the Thermwood controls or a add on. We find its the final cut into the spoil sheet when you have smaller parts that the second pump is ...

part editor release 13

Hi, In part editor, I am able to create a cutout for a circle 5mm to 25mm and so forth but when I try to make a sink cut out it comes up with an error as attached picture will show. I didn’t have this problem before the versions build v6 ver 12 but as soon as I updated to 12 and 13 the ability to do...

Re: Drawer runner issue

Hi Jason,
After a bit more investigation I think the drill head may need attention. Just waiting some advice from Flecknoe. Its out 3.5mm which shows up differently depending on the position of the part in the nest.
Will let you know what we find in the next day or so.

Drawer runner issue

I was wondering if anyone was having or had a issue with the rhs runner in carcass/cable end infrequently being drilled wrong. The hole varies by 2 to 4 mm but not consistantly wrong. It happens on two different drawer type sets. In our case a softclose model and a self close model called Harn. The ...

Re: ecabs users in Western Australia

Hi John,
We do ship flatpacks to Perth via a freight company in Kewdale.
Normally its about $200 for freight plus the cost for a crate to send it up in unless its on a pallet which I don't recomend.
If Vince and John are not interested we could do the sums on a test job.
Regards

Re: ecabs users in Western Australia

John I have one here in Albany. I think thats still classed as Western Australia but then again next stop is Antarctica. :?
I think there are a few 3 axis machines used in the plastic industry in Perth as well.
Our machine just hit 6 years old, so its gone fast.
