Wow!!!

I just love it when, for NO reason, eCabs just deleted a cabinet from my custom layout. I took a different cabinet to CE to make some changes, returned to room savings changes and viola! An unrelated cabinet is completely gone. :wall:

Re: Nesting issues

David, I did as you suggested and now it works. Thank you! I'm not sure what goes on internally with eCabs, but there must be some bugs lurking around in there. To have to delete an assembly like a drawer box and rebuild one so it will work right says there is some parameter corruption taking place ...

Re: Nesting issues

Just played with the GRAIN option, in define materials, by turning it on and off for the material and if I turn it off, all parts are nested cross grain. When it is checked, drawer sides are with the grain (expected) and tall fronts and backs are still cross grain.

Re: Nesting issues

Bumping this issue. Thermwood, this seems to be very repeatable. Here's what I'm doing: 1. I have a sheet of 5/8" Appleply in my defined materials 2. Has grain direction is checked. 3. Created a drawer box that has tall fronts and backs but short sides (a trash can drawer) 4. In drawer box edit...

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...

Re: Constraint Manager - help needed

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...
