Bug in stretcher editor?

I'm trying to add a false back to a cabinet to create a void that stereo cables can be hidden in. I am using stretcher editor to add a 1/4" piece of plywood to create the false back. I have stated I want full dados on top, bottom, left and right. I am using a left-right stretcher, rotated 90*. ...

Stretcher editor inconsistencies

I've noticed when I go to stretcher editor and select a stretcher to work on it, it never gets deselected. I found when I go back to Main, the stretcher is still selected. I've figured this out when I go to do some edgebanding and only the selected part (stretcher) is offered up for edgebanding. May...

Nesting issue - Need help figuring this out

I've got a situation where eCabs is rotated parts that are not checked that they can be rotated. I've attached a couple of pictures. The first picture shows what happens when I perform a nest on a Custom Layout of cabinets. The second picture shows when I take that cabinet into CE and perform a nest...

Screen print - versus using the camera in LDE

Not sure if I'm doing something wrong but when I use the little camera in the LDE to get a screen shot, the screen shot is missing stuff that shows up on the screen. Is there something I need to do to get all the detail on the screen to show up in the JPG that is output from the camera?

Moving a wall in room editor

Once I've got walls in a room and cabinets associated to those walls, is it possible to move the wall and cabinets in the room editor?

I've got some walls that are to close together to view them in 3D. I need to move the walls further apart.

Thank you!

Re: SB Link Printer Setup

Hi Nat,

I struggled with this as SBLink does not behave like a normal Windows application. I found out you need to setup the printer in the Windows printer setup routine. Then SBLink will recognize it.

Re: eCabinet Productivity

Kerry, What you describe for getting dimensions for assembly cabinets seems to be a place where some improvements could be done. I'm with you that complex cabinets that have multiple faceframe parts, partitions, fixed shelves, etc. need to be taken to LDE and all the dimensions added then printed. I...

Re: Stretcher editor problem?

Scott,

Whenever I have these types of problems the first thing I do is make sure my video driver is up to date per the video card manufacturer. Mine is up to date. So not sure what is going on.

I go into stretcher editor
Select a stretcher
Go into Adjust Stretcher
Click on Done
Return back to stretcher editor

Cabinet is not being restored when I come back from adjusting the stretcher.

Cabinet file attached as well as screen shot of what I'm talking about.

Re: ISLAND TOE

I've approached island cabinets a little different. I build my cabinets with NO toekick. I set the cabinet height to be equal to my other cabinets (with toekicks) to be shorter by the height of the toekick. In my case 4" high. I make all my island cabinets like this. Then I use 2x4's and 1/2&qu...

Re: Tenon cleanup

Ralph, Where does one get the beta version of the Link? Been waiting for over 3 years for a release to fix some of the Link issues. As far as cutting goes, I climb cut all my outlines (leaving a 1/32" skin), then reverse the direction (conventional) for the final pass. My first pass cuts all th...
