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...

I think I may have found the answer from Justin at Thermwood. The parts that I brought into the parts editor were display boards. Apparently the display board won't re-appear in the parts editor, with the performed cut-thru's, if the cabinet was saved and re-opened at a later time in the cab editor....

Part editor

Has anyone experienced a problem where you took a display boared into part editor and modified in using cut-thru and returned to the cab editor with the changes? The problem I'm having is that the part displays properly in cab editor but when taken back to the part editor the modification is no long...

Mike, That was really impressive. My brain started to perspire when I followed your explanation of how you made the tapered leg. I need to get where you are at with the part editor. I agree that this software is awesome. Can't see how you can do without it after using it. Still, seems like an obviou...

Thanks Mike and Mark, To follow up on this question I noticed that the candlestick created by the tool chain, in Pauls tool demo, was rotatong around the \"Z\" axis. Is there any way to bisect the \"Z\" axis with another cut? I guess what I should hope for is a more \"Sketch...

Parts editor Limitation?

Hi all, I was wondering if there is any way to take a part into the part editor and edit the part on more than the front and back view? Say you had a big ol' block of wood and you wanted to pierce and create tool paths on the side of the part as well as the top and bottom. All I can figure is that y...
