Texture Match?

When I put a door on a cabinet it changes my face frame to the wood and color of my door. Isn't the door supposes to be able to be changed to match the face frame? The face frame still says it is the color I originally set but is now the same as the door. What am I doing wrong? :roll:

Change Door Color?

Can anyone tell me why I can't change door colors? I am using the CRP-10 Conestoga door. This is the one I usually use. I have the color in my board stock with all the information but it won't change. I have done this many times before with not problem. It seems that since upgrading eCabs I can't do...

Re: I am looking for a new e-mail server

George,
I have a gmail account that I use. As far as a server on my computer, I use Windows Live Mail. It is ok but I liked Outlook Express much better. Didn't Windows Live Mail come with your Windows 7? Try it, you may like it.

Re: Waterborne Stain and Finish

Thanks Kerry. I have been told by several that the grain rises a lot with WB stains. They say use a sealant but does that allow the stain to soak in after the sealer is applied? I looked at Target and it seems really good. They offer a lot of information much like Gemini.

Waterborne Stain and Finish

Is anyone familiar with Gemini WB stains and finishes? I am doing a LEED house and they are wanting, at best, low VOC plywood, stain and finishes. Gemini seems to know what they are doing. Anyone have any advice?

Re: Adding a new topic

I agree that it should focus on the software. Would this type of a question be good for the 'lounge?' This forum was started for 'extra' stuff that didn't pertain to the software indirectly. That's my two cents (not really worth two cents.)

Backup Files

There is a great online backup program that is called 'Dropbox.' You all might want to check it out. It is a great way to back up your job files and more. It is free for 2GB of space. You can add more of course for a small fee.

Happy Fourth of July

Celebrate carefully everyone. Remember, our great nation is still free and we can give thanks to all those who fought for independence years ago as a group of people who had had enough and those who still fight for it today. Also, give thanks to a great God who still reigns.

Re: face frame on both sides of an island

Mark, You are not ignorant at all. I have asked similar questions as well. First, to save a cabinet, or anything for that matter you simply use the button up in the left corner of the cabinet editor ( the main screen of eCabs). It is next to the button with the blue X in it. It looks like an old flo...

Re: face frame on both sides of an island

Mark,

It might do you well to make a second cabinet and delete all parts except the face frame. Save the face frame and then add it to the other cabinet. Make sure the original cabinet has no back. I hope this helps.

Re: I seek your opinion on the shell on the left

Al, What if you place the inside panels of the knee-hole under the top? They would be stationary and the drawer cabinets would slide out from there. There would be two outside panels and the two inner. That would give support as well as providing a panel for inside knee-hole. The drawer cabinet itse...

Ok, George and Bryan, I found the plugin for sketchup but here is the problem that I am having. I apologize for my ignorance ahead of time. When I save it as an stl. file I open it in eCabinets and it is all black. How do I change the texture or colors after it is in eCabinets? I tried to seperate t...
