Re: Assembly Screw Holes

Chris, On the RTA fittings, I took the stud out of the hole pattern and things were fine. I hadn't had a problem with the RTA fittings themselves, but when the shelf holes were added, things were acting up. The fact that they were in line with each other (never overlapped) may have contributed. I ha...

Assembly Screw Holes

Is there a way to limit a stretcher to have just one RTA fitting per end? I may go the route of using a piece of RTA hardware with a modified hole pattern to generate my pilot holes (thanks to Joe Dusel for the suggestion!), but need to iron this part of it out. All I'm coming up is to set the front...

Re: Wish List for Version 6

I'd to see this also, and was a little suprised to find that this option didn't exist. Another drawback with using the adjustable shelf to create the holes is that I've had the shelf inadvertantly shift. Not a real problem if you're just using the holes for shelves, but definitely an issue if you're...

Re: Error with Shelf Holes

Kerry, I do think the error is coming about within E-cabinets. I changed a number of things back and forth, but think that the error message within PE, was consistant with the parts that were drilled incorrectly. I cut the parts today, eliminating the stud from the hole pattern for the RTA fitting, ...

Re: Error with Shelf Holes

Nick, No setting for max. step depth. Something's buggy. This cabinet was just one in nest a nest of several, all had the same shelf hole depth, and this is the only one that ended up getting drilled twice. This is the only one thatI used a shelf to generate the shelf holes for, though. I've added s...

Re: Error with Shelf Holes

Thanks Kerry. I have a Shopbot, and I was treading water, trying every route I could think of to avoid paying the $22K to for the CNC add on to my CabinetVision software. Then along came the SB/E-Cabinets Link. I hadn't used E-Cabs before, but ordered it when I heard of the Link becoming available, ...

Re: Error with Shelf Holes

On the CNC it's drilling each row of holes twice.

The RTA fittings for the top have a stud that was in line with the shelf holes, which seemed to be causing the problem. I can use the shelf holes for all my RTA studs and sidestep the issue, for now...

Error with Shelf Holes

On the attached cabinet, each row of shelf holes is getting drilled twice, for some reason. When I have one of the sides in PE, then go to return to the Cab. Editor, I get the message "The operation... violates the ideal tenon or dadoes. You may see some unexected results". (There are no t...

Re: Better way to build cabinet?

I like the idea of using saved geometry, and then constraining the holes. The problem with using separate library for cabinets with 'like' parts, is that some have a mix of parts. Some of the cabinets have both a finished and an unfinished end, some have both fixed and adjustable shelves. I'm wonder...

Better way to build cabinet?

I'm redoing my closet library, and will be basing it on the cabinet attached below. The last time around I used color coded edgeband to distinguish certain parts (finished vs unfinished ends, fixed vs. adjustable shelves etc.) but am going to do without edgeband on these. The edgebanding seems to sl...

Re: Top not Cutlisting Correctly/ RTA Fitting

Thanks Chris. I'll play around with the notch and holes and see if that's tied into the error. In the meantime, I removed the banding from the front edge of the top, and set the top back, from the front of the cabinet, the thickness of the banding. This works, but isn't ideal. In the meantime, if ot...
