Re: Nesting issues

I doubled checked the material specs and it does in fact have the "has Grain" checked. I'm working with the drawer box front for the lower drawer in this cabinet. I've attached a screen shoot of how the part is displayed in CE. As you can see, the grain is along the long axis of the part. ...

Nesting issues

Couple of things I've noticed and was wondering if there are settings I need to adjust to change this. First issue is the way I'm getting some parts kinda randomly placed on the sheet. "Picture 1" and "Picture 3" shows this. Part 34 and part 35 on "Picture 1" seem to be...

Thanks Dave!! :beer:

How do you get the formula in the constraint? That's exactly what I was looking for and couldn't figure out how to do.

Constraint Manager - help needed

I am designing a pull out tray for cabinets (drawer box). I have a half moon cut (PE) in the front part of the drawer. It is set to a certain width, say 5" wide. Tray (drawer box) file is attached. I'd like to constrain the half moon to 5" wide but have eCabs auto center it in the drawer f...

Re: Can't Adjust Cabinet Opening

I've had many inexplicable problems over the years with eCabs and found that just deleting the cabinet and starting over is the only way to move forward without wasting a bunch of time. Save yourself the frustration of trying to figure out. The only thing I've been able to deduce is that somehow the...

I use the Windows AV software and have not had a problem on my design computer running Windows 7. SBLink runs fine on the design computer.

Re: Need laptop advise. How are these specs?

I've got 16GB RAM and Quad core processor in my design computer and eCabs really starts to slow down when I'm working on a custom room layout and start adding cabinets to it. I don't know what the magic amount of RAM and how many CPU's you need to keep performance good when working on large projects...

Re: Shopbot Link and Norton

Deinstall all AV software, disconnect your machine from the internet and dedicate your computer to be your control computer. If you have a bunch of other stuff running on your control computer, it will cause comms problems. Also, if you have everything working on the computer, you don't want Windows...

I think there are still some issues in the stretcher editor

On the current job I am doing, I've noticed that when I cut parts for cabinets, some of the stretchers are not getting tenons cut and no mortises are being cut in the cabinets sides. I will bring a cabinet into stretcher editor, add and adjust stretchers and go back to CE. I will save the cabinet an...

Re: Printing From Line Drawing Editor

I've kinda given up trying to print from inside eCabs. I do a screen print then bring it into an image editor, crop it and save it. Nothing is lost during printing inside eCabs (dimensions, etc.) and no crashes.

Nesting orientation issue?

I have a drawer box that I made. In the settings I've specified that I want the grain orientation of the front and back to be up and down (rotate 90 degrees in settings). It is displayed properly in the dbx editor. However, when I go to nest the cabinet the orientation of the dbx front and back are ...

Resizing cabinet to zero when placing in room design

I am trying to place a cabinet between two cabinets, that according to eCabs, are 18.5" apart. The cabinet I'm trying to insert is 18" wide. I get the resulting dialog box stating the cabinet is going to be resized to 0. Not sure why an 18" cabinet needs to be resized to 0 to fit into...
