Shape manager retard

O.K. This may be a stupid question but here goes..... I'm selling a client on a mission style bookcase that will be modular in nature and quick to build. One thing I'm trying to do is create the type of verticle legs (1 5/8 x1 5/8"x 50"L) that are about .25" proud of the cabinet top a...

Re: The Future of eCabinet Systems

I outsource all my panel milling and edgebanding to a thermwood shop and this visual reference to aid in assembly will come as a great help and timesaver. That and to sift out my parts without having to read the labels anymore, by spotting the color intsead, will be fantastic. I love the idea of usi...

It's after 11pm now and I'm experiecing all the worst things that you could imagine. The kitchen is currently brocken down into its fundemental parts. No more assemblies that are made up of individual cabs. All the cabinets have been gone thru and the materials have been changed to the real world av...

problem with settings/prefs define material.

Hi Everybody, I'm trying to get a material added to my sheet stock list for 3/4\" melamine in settings/prefs. I've been rebuilding a kitchen and going thru changing the materials to actual thicknesses. Noticed that some of the parts that I was changing to the new material was still 3/4\". ...

Forrest, Dan Thanks for the good advice. We are finding that the best way to run this kitchen will be to tear it apart and go thru, one by one, changing the material thickness of all the parts. Also realizing that assemblies are out for running the job. I've started to break them down and saving eac...

Thom, It sounds wrong but I'm glad you're having the same problem. Now we know we're not crazy! Thanks for the tip. It sounds like I will have to remove all those holes from this job. I'll put it on the list of things to do. Forrest, thanks for your offer to try and run a cab. That's very generous o...

Forrest, Thanks for having a look. I appreciate all the advice that has been offered here. The problems that I'm expierencing on this job are too numerous to believe. The first picture was not a flip but a blind dado. The second and third pics are of the mortises in the 3/4\" stock. The large h...

Thanks for responding guys, The issues that we've been having are the enormous amount of time spent in the software trying to figure out bugs in the program as well as the nesting of the parts when their are part editor cuts involved. Currently the blind dadoe is giving us the worst trouble. I have ...

Success with the program

Hi All, I've been using e-cabs for about a year now and it's been an amazing program. After reading a past e-cab magazine article on 'change is good' it occurred to me to try and do just that. I've recently attempted to try the services of a Thermwood CNC shop for a kitchen I'm doing. It has not gon...

Thanks Nemanja, I can see how the thru dadoe would eliminate the problems of the badly cut tenon. Unfortunately that can't be an option as the job was spec'ed for drawers with blind dadoes. The CNC mill also had major issues with the job file. Trying to run 3/4 maple ply cab parts with a 50% thickne...

Drawer box parts

Has anyone expierenced any issues with their drawer box parts being constructed with blind dadoeds? I've subbed out my parts to a Thermwood CNC shop and the shoulders of the tennons are slightly proud of the entry and exit cuts made on either side of the tennon. Basically it means that the joint wil...
