Re: Grain Match on multiple adjacent cabinets?

So, back in April when you told me about this Rick, I tried it and took a look at the nest diagrams and everything looked fine. So I bid the job as if I could sequence the fronts. But now I'm actually trying to create and send a TWD file to my ShopBot link for cutting and it doesn't seem to give a d...

Hot Key Suggestions for LDE

After reviewing the help file list as well as the 'eCabinetsSystemsMadeEasy.pdf', it appears to me that the Line Drawing Editor is sorely lacking from the benefits of any useable hot keys (aka: keyboard shortcuts). I spend a lot of time in the LDE & would like to request that at least the follow...

Re: Hinge Hardware Holes on Doors & Gables

I should clarify my item #1 below: This hinge hole ptn has holes in both the door & gable. Hey Neville, I hear what you're saying, but I believe that it's best suited to high-volume shops to simply throw away a piece & keep cutting because material is cheap. And my clients typically don't pi...

Re: Copy pages between LDE jobs

Mike,

I like your idea of using a PDF app to add details to shop drawings. I use a free app called Foxit that allows me to do this & it's much more efficient at adding/copying/editing things like text, arrows, etc... to the pages than the LDE.

Thanks

Re: Hinge Hardware Holes on Doors & Gables

That's a good point Ralph about keeping both faces untouched until after checking them. More options are always better....Thanks. BTW: I think this is how I'm going to handle this hardware hole pattern issue with in-house built doors. 1) Apply a hinge hole ptn to the doors to make my shop dwgs &...

Re: Hinge Hardware Holes on Doors & Gables

Oddly, if I apply the hinge hole ptn (door only) after I have applied the plate hole ptn (gable only), the gable holes are removed, and they do not return even if I re-add them. The only way to get both to display together seems to be to have all the holes in the hinge hole ptn.

Hinge Hardware Holes on Doors & Gables

Up until now, I've always ordered my doors from a supplier & drilled them for hinges manually. So I've always used a hinge hole pattern than contained both the the hinge (door holes) & the mounting plate (gable holes). EC would show me the location of the holes on the doors & gables, but...

Re: Is there a way?

I'd like to take this principle a step higher. Is it possible to change the construction settings for multiple library cabs at one time? I've looked into the Adjustable Features/Global Item Modification area, but it doesn't allow me to do things like change adjustable shelf setback for an entire fol...

Re: Copy pages between LDE jobs

Scott: Thanks, but that doesn't do what I need. Mike: I probably didn't explain it very well, so let me try again. 1) Standard Cabinets Shop Drawings Project: I want a static copy of all my std cabs in a single project file (each cab has it's own a page in the LDE). It would also be helpful if we co...

Re: Drill adj shelf bottom for shelf pin

I appreciate all the feedback & ideas guys. I'm sure this info will help others with similar problems. The one thing I've realized with this app is that often lets us do what we need to do by using some kind of work-arournd, but it's often very time & labour intensive & the result is (in...

Re: Drill adj shelf bottom for shelf pin

I just did a search and can't find anything on that Brad. I don't know how to get the KD pattern to attach to adj shelves, but I'm thinking if I could, it might work.

Re: Drill adj shelf bottom for shelf pin

Thanks for your reply Forrest, but I need something a wee-bit less time consuming and a whole lot more dynamic than that I'm afraid. I'm not interested in creating 4 statically located holes on each a/s manually. They need to dynamically align with the holes in the gables (in/out). Is there any way ...

Drill adj shelf bottom for shelf pin

Is it possible to have adjustable shelves drilled on the bottom face for this shelf pin? If so, could you please tell me how? Thank you.

Re: Copy pages between LDE jobs

I have tried that Mike, but no luck. I would like to make a library of shop drawings in the LDE for all my standard cabinets in one job and another set of shop dwgs for each job with whatever standard cabs as well as custom cabs it requires. Maybe I'm going about this the wrong way. How does everyon...

Is there any way to copy an entire page from the LDE of one job into another?
