Ecabinets 5.2

I was wondering if 5.2 had finished its beta testing yet? Is there a approx release date? Is there a list of features to be included? I'm in the early stages of learning Ecabinets and I believe there have been a few changes that have been designed to tidy up the front end. I have other staff that ne...

Well that will be interesting if they add that link to the member store in version 6. What if the store is closed? There is no store outside the USA. I spoke to the Australian Sales and there is not enough Ecabinet users to warrant the expense at this time. Maybe they can delay that feature until al...

Hi Denny, To me Vista is not worth the agro. Don't smash that computer as its not really its fault. Backup your data and any other info onto a usb memory stick. Buy that new hard disk and get someone to install XP for you if your not sure. Your looking at 3 to 4 hrs work to get ecabinets operational...

I don't think loading XP is going to be that difficult seeing most of the suppliers of Computer cards etc aren't even supplying drivers for Vista. If you want to play it safe whip out the hard disk and put in another one which are dirt cheap. Install XP and ecabinets. If it works well for a few week...

Hi Mark & Forrest, I wasn't aware that there are different grades of MDF. I just thought one supplier had a better product than another for sanding purposes. Sanders are always a problem and if you get a good one they only seem to last a year or so before they have a mental breakdown. If it gets...

Hi Mark, Yes we do spend that sanding time on the MDF doors hence the reason to go from the Multicam to the Thermwood. The sales man from another German made CNC was bragging that their cnc requiring no sanding. I find that hard to believe. I do think going to all Diamond will improve the cut from t...

Mdf door sanding face and internal grooving

I'm looking at purchasing a Thermwood and have made enquirees about the floating head. I thought this might be good for sanding the MDF doors as we spend about 10 to 30 minutes sanding depending if doors have a simple routed pattern or a pocket design. We currently have a multicam type machine which...

Hi Guys, There is a new version of the Blum corner drawer that doesn't need mitred corners. It folds in on its self when it shuts. Very neat. The old model does require a few hrs. I allowed 4 hrs for 3 drawers. Maybe others can advise if thats too tight or too generous. If your getting the kit try a...

Thanks Brad for the reply. The quickcam side of cadcode produces a CSV which Cadcode grabs and optimises and sends to whatever machine you wish. I think Thermwood can also read CSV's so this may be a beter cleaner way of doing it. With Thermwoods optimiser is that any good? Its just Cadcodes sometim...

Cadcode quickcam and thermwood

I am looking at a thermwood CNC to replace my multicam machine. I have spent a long time getting my system for doing carcass and door work right on my current machine using cadcode and cadcodes quickcam software. I was wondering if anyone knows this software and if I could either stay with this and ...

Kerry hits a home run

Well Kerry your response does make my drawing look rather sick. It certainly does the part of the work in selling your design to the client. Would it be possible to also post the working drawings for the staff. I normally give them a floor plan, front elevations and some perspectives which in my pro...

My idea of a average kitchen

Sorry guys. It was a silly request as we all have different idea's of what is a average kitchen depending on our locality. I have a few screenshots of what I consider is a approx $7000 kitchen so If I could get back some feedback on how long Ecabinets takes to achieve this result I can deceide when ...
