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.

Stretcher editor problem?

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...

Re: Tenon cleanup

I have the same issues. All my tenons have to be cleaned up. Another problem is most of my tenons are cut about .0156" to long. So I have to take all my cabinet parts with tenons to the edge sander and sand them off so the parts fit properly. Yes, I have micrometer my bits and my material to th...

Re: LDE problem with latest upgrade

Rick,

How would the cabinet get slightly rotated? All I did was bring it in from CE and set Page Setup to landscape mode. Then resized the cabinet to fit in the page. Then hide all the parts I needed to to get to just the faceframe for measurements. Kinda confused on that.

LDE problem with latest upgrade

Attached is an LDE rendering of a cabinet. Also attached is the cabinet hsf file.

Brought cabinet in from CE
Hide drawer faces and doors
Hide stretchers
Hide back of cabinet

Now there are all these extra lines and I don't know where they came from. It makes setting dimensions a bit difficult.

Update to 6.1 installed - now much slower

I was prompted to upgrade my 6.1 installation this morning. I installed the update. Now things are much slower running. Going from Drawer/Door editor back to main takes much longer to recalc everything then it did before. Saving a cabinet seems to take longer then it did before. The program seems mo...
