another option to solve this... and this is what we do since i still can't convince them to change the set-up on the point-to-point to match the thermwood... is to create your holes the hard way in part editor. take your gable in and create a bunch of 5 mm holes, then take it to constraints manager ...

here is a job i am running right now. if you go to sheet 24 and 25 which are full of upper gables, it will drill all the 5mm holes fine, but will then drill 1 8mm hole at the top and bottom of each gable before returning to drill the rest of the holes around them. it certainly is not drilling them i...

i think that the last thing i did before saving it was adding the constraints to the top and to the lower shelf... and it saved fine. didn't try to change materials or anything at that time though. it was when i re-opened it, and ever since then, that the crashes have happened. as it is now, i have ...

trying to figure out doors

k, be patient with me... so far, all we have done with ecabs is create cabinets and run batch jobs, and it works well and we have been pumping out up to around 20 kitchens a week at times this way. i don't have to worry about desing, just converting what the designers give me into real cabinets. we ...

another thing to check would be your air pressures at each guage at the back of the gantry. i know that in our shop, we have had guys in for the past couple of weeks upgrading our compressed air lines and all sorts of other stuff, and i have had to tweak my pressure settings a couple of times to put...

what if you DO have a drill bank but still get the wonky drill order? our holes, whether drilled by the drill bank or the single drill, are almost always in some extremely time consuming and incomprehensible order.

as for the letters, we recently made a large sign for ourselves by creating the text in autocad and then just tracing around the outside. once you finish the trace, you can delete the text and you have your cut path.

i would appreciate this kind of software... since i have built cabinets that won't fit up a flight of stairs and had to be broken apart and re-assembled/repaired at the top... sigh... :oops: the only problem i could foresee would be that you would end up spending more time plugging in building dimen...
