OK, I had my first experience with a display cube trying to place a \"microwave oven\" I've only figured out how to move it by SHIFT>arrow, or SHIFT>U / SHIFT>D This makes it hard to get your bearing, and I have to keep switching between views to gauge the movement, from birds eye, the arr...

OK, I have the approximate scale I want, but the \"window\" that I applied to the backdrop wall is 40' wide by 25' high. When I try to render for presentation view, the computer starts to perform the operation but siezes up... :( I've been reading about resizing original images, stretching...

I discovered a design from the furniture design share area that is PERFECT for a client of mine. I've built the room and walls in LAYOUT and am trying to achieve a realistic effect by adding a wall for the backdrop outside, and applying an image that I placed in \"myimages\" this home is s...

actually, the second error message I described ends with a .twt It's c drive-program files/thermwood/ecabinets/doors/conestogaz/thermtemp.twt I don't even HAVE any doors selected, and the nest generating area does the same thing even if I take something as simple as a standard detached toekick into ...

:shock: MAN, I wanna be able to render like that when I grow up!

That is truly an excellent job, Kerry!

How long does it take to create something close to that, once you have build up your libraries/files?

error message creating nest diagrams

When trying to generate a nest image, I am consistently getting error messages. X DATABASE ALREADY EXISTS is the one that ALWAYS occurs, X UNRECOGNIZED DATABASE FORMAT prgrm files/thrmwood/ecab/conestogaz/thermtemp is the other that either precedes, supercedes, but doesn't always occur. Bottom line ...

that's exactly what I wanted know for one regard, for another, I now understand that modifying the nest is unsupported in this version. The reason I would like to have this capability, is so that I could group all applicable panels onto carefully selected and mapped sheets, MODIFY the nest diagram a...

execution of commands

I'd like to know how the CNC actually cuts in relation to how I'm deriving my curved parts. For example, if I take a 21\" square cabinet top into the part editor, then shape it to 20.29\" square with an arc front edge... Does the program nest a 21\" square, and then cut the shape, or ...

Trying to walk through the practice demonstration in eCabinetSystemsMadeEasy, printed page # 98-104 is exactly what I am having difficulty with. I am affluent with making the speaker grille recess, and cutting the speaker hole and it's bolt holes... It's cutting the arc-fronted top that I can't seem...

Does this produce something that can be actually cut? I'm seeing how this makes a dynamite display cube that can be placed onto designs to show potential customers, but I don't understand how to use this to be able to mill an actual sized and processed piece of wood???

If I am understanding correctly, we take an item into SHAPE; create tooling; apply that tooling to very specific points on that item -be it a cabinet side, display cube or stainless steel dishwasher :P Once we return back to the cab/assembly designer, THAT specific part, as it was sized/milled durin...

got it :)

Now, there isn't a \"lost in translation\" facto to be aware of is there?

In other words, will converting back and forth inherently round up and down at a certain decimal place
-thus amounting to stacked tolerance losses/gains in certain instances?

settings/preferences dialog

I've been using the \"hot keys\" to bring up various areas, cntrl + E for the settings/preferences gives me the ability to choose metric. If I choose \"METRIC\" will it affect only the product in cabinet designer, or will it retroactively affect everything I've done so far? Hopef...

Great..... :fire: I just figured out that by selecting TWO sides of the shape that it highlights, and I get a \"next\" button, everytime I try this it says \"creation of the part was unsuccessful\"

I printed the entire PDF collated, drilled holes, and loaded it into a 2\" three ring binder. I do exactly as the book says for the walk through... After I create the shape and return to the main shape area ( expecting that what is now a closed geo shape will be highlighted and ready to cut, th...
