Small Off Cut Parts

Hi Guys, We have major problems with small off-cut parts, if you take a look at the images attached you will see how small some of these parts are. I know that there is no way of eliminating these parts, but maybe in the future there should be something in the program which can router out parts unde...

Re: DWG or DXF

You can take DXF straight into eCabinets, the best place to do this is in the shape manager, not sure what you are trying to do. If you are wanting to take a 3D image into eCabinet the file type which I use is .skp, then I save it as a stl file which can be opened in the part editor. Make sure you s...

We are having some difficulties as the operators at the edge banding machine are unaware of what type of edge banding is needed, for example a part could have face colour fro...

Re: Formatted excel spread sheet

select the arrow above number 1, which will select the whole sheet. Then right click this and go to format cells and change to general.

That will work for you.

Re: Formatted excel spread sheet

Ok F2 is stored as text, select the cell F2 and then you will see a little ! appear in a yellow box, just select this and convert to number. If this doesnt work select all cells and format cells to be general.

Let me know if this works.
