Is this also affecting the ability to modify the edgebanding? I was trying to hurry yesterday and did a batch change for sheetgoods and now can't modify the edgebanding. In this case, I batch changed the sheetgoods and then brought a cabinet into the editor to modify the edgebanding and got the erro...

reedwatts, This is how I'm using eCabinets to price my work. I'm using the Labor Based Cost Calculations. Over time, I have compiled time studies for cabinet fabrication and installation. When I create a seed cabinet, I update it's labor costs. Base Lazy Susan cabinets take more time to assemble tha...

5pc Panel Doors on THM

Has anyone used the 5pc door setup yet? I searched for the fixtures at the store but didn't see a listing. What's the cost of the fixture? I read through the manual and didn't see a reference to mid-stiles or mid-rails. We often use tall panels for refrigerator sides as well as wainscoting for islan...

Hi Michael, I use import birch all the time. From my supplier, I have found the import birch to be more consistent in thickness and having fewer voids. Also, I only use birch finished two sides. So, our material has been very flat. If the panel is unbalanced (finished one side), you will have potato...

Matt, I understand completely when you need that machine running and it's not, regardless of reason! How is the difference between eCab nest results and actual control nest results keeping your machine from running? I'm not trying to be a smartass. Just trying to understand your situation. If I need...

Al,

If I weren't so jealous, I'd almost hate you. :lol:

You can't ask for more than that...a pool, shop in the back yard, and most importantly, family by your side enjoying it all with you!

GOD Bless,

Michael, Being a two person shop, I'd love to have this kind of data! The examples posed on the above thread would be nice. I used to try and keep manually recorded data on a spreadsheet but gave up on it. Took too much time. I'd like to see average cutting speeds too. This data would be very benefi...

Ken, It's great to hear from you. I re-read the latest article in the eCab members magazine regarding the NextGen control. Did I understand the article correctly that basically, NextGen will eliminate the need for a cam? In other words, would I be able to develop a complex part, let's say a 3d grape...

Hi Ken,

As you develop eCabs to output the jobs to the NextGen, how does this affect those of us with the 91000 Supercontrol?

Thanks,

Joe, I hate installs. I don't mind the work. It's trying to work around the customers, their families and the fact that the shop shuts down while I'm out on an install. It never occured to me to set up classes to teach others how to use eCabs. There are areas of eCabs that I haven't gotten up to spe...

Gotta change business focus or fail!

Hey, We're at a point that we need to make some serious changes in our products, market etc. If there's a member out there (or Ken!) that has gone through this exercise, I would like to talk to you. I don't want to get into all of the gory details but suffice it to say that our housing market has ne...

Al, I'm speaking in general terms. I have a nVidia GeForce 7600GL with 512mb video ram, PCI-E adapter.

Specifically, I was wondering if errors that affect the final product can originate from the softwares interaction with the video card?

Video Cards & Errors

Hi Thermwood Team, This has been discussed a little in the past but I want to try and get a better understanding. Can using a nVidia GeForce card instead of a Quadro FX series card create errors within eCabs where the final result is errors in design or machine output? I can grasp how a particular v...
