construction settings request?

I don't know if anyone else would find it useful but is there any way for a parts construction setting parameters be brought up after it has been selected? Specifically, in some of my cabinet modifications might be more than one partition. Each partition would be added with separate construction par...

Re: owners with issues

Thanks Kenneth, Although the shop I do business with doesn't run a ShopBot it's good to now that the program is running well for you on yours. I'm not sure if there would be a big difference with the Thermwood controller or not. Hopefully everyone owning a machine is having good success with the pro...

owners with issues

Hi All, Could any Thermwood owners out there recommend the stability of E-cabs 6.3. I have a small shop and have my files cut by a another shop owning a Thermwood. There was some issues associated with running 6.2 and we dumped it for the earlier v5.2 as it was costing money in delays and spoiled sh...

Hey, howcum.......

O.K., This may not be a good time to bring this subject up while everybody is wrapping their head around V6 but maybe, as long as Thermwood is in there wrenching on it, would it be a good idea to have the tenon thickness a direct value input? Maybe I'm missing something but would it be more helpful ...

Re: Speed follow up

Neville, That is a good idea of tring to test speeds with a trial cabinet. Maybe a shared room that is already built to test on each others rigs would be very helpfull. As I'm building my next computer I had my tech guy look over the system requirements on the site. He mentioned that the some of the...

Re: Speed follow up

Whups! My Bad. My apologies. My intention was to figure out if hardware could give any performance gain to the e-cabs program that could help us get thru the design stage of selling. Most specifically the room display. The other program was mentioned as a benchmark to try to get to for any hardware ...

Re: Speed follow up

Thanks Don & Dan, Thanks for the lowdown on the computer build Don. I will use it as a yardstick when I pull the trigger on a new computer. I hope that the performance boost made it worth it. Currently, it is felt that e-cabs falls short in the selling department. The room displays definately he...

Speed follow up

Evening all, Just finished Nat's post on trying to speed things up for running e-cabs. We've been kicking around the idea of finding a faster program like KCDW for the sake of being able to turn around designs in order to get the jobs. Taking software as it comes there is no one magic bullet and the...

Re: Dxf in part editor

Thanks Kerry, I'll try the tips that you suggested. Especially the pick box size and the filet tool. The zooming and snaps off were being used but for some reason the lines wern't getting selected when I rolled over them and they turned red. I would have to click a number of times even though I was ...

Re: Dxf in part editor

Whoops!
Thanks Dan. I forgot to mention it in the earlier post. I couldn't post the DXF since I'm operating the program from one machine and posting from another. I appreciate your offer to check out the DXF file, though. Much appreciated.

Regards,
Tim

Went back and loaded the dxf ogee bracket. dropped it onto the panel, in the contour editor, and used the 'extend line' tool at every line intersection so that there was an ove...

Re: Dxf in part editor

Hey Guys, Thanks for the feedback. It has helped. I was able to load the dxf into the contour editor successfully. Bammo! Got the dxf shape, drawn in turbo, loaded right onto the panel. Went back into the part editor and tried to create the part using the loaded closed contour. AWWwwww poop! Same me...
