Re: Two-Piece Square Corner Cabinet Deck

That's pretty impressive Scott! I would have never thought of doing it that way. Thank you for taking the time to enlighten me on this option. I'm sure there will be others who also benefit from this.

Cheers

Re: How to determine exact material thickness used before

This post should have probably been named "Determine exact material thickness used before from TWD file" but I can't change it.

Re: How to determine exact material thickness used before

Never mind, I think I found it. For anyone that's interested, here's how I did it. 1) Load the TWD file (in my case, into the ShopBot Link). 2) Select the material using the selection filter (if there's more than one). 3) Nest the material. 4) Without the USB hasp installed on your computer, click '...

How to determine exact material thickness used before

I'm wondering if anyone knows how to determine the ACTUAL material thickness used in a TWD file from a past job? I use generic material thicknesses in the library and then usually change those to exact thicknesses at the shop, where I simply mic the material when I create the TWD file. But I'm not a...

Re: Two-Piece Square Corner Cabinet Deck

Thank you Scott. I now understand why you use the closed contour section rather than getting the dimensions elsewhere beforehand. I'm still not clear on the edging though, but at this point I'm not worried about it. I'll associate the part with the cab now too.

Re: Two-Piece Square Corner Cabinet Deck

Thanks for your quick and helpful info Scott! I'm obviously not as experienced with eCabs as you are, and I was even able to learn a few shortcuts from your video. Thanks for taking the time to post this. If you don't already work for TW, they should seriously consider bringing you on board. I do ha...

Two-Piece Square Corner Cabinet Deck

Does anyone know how I can make the top/bottom for these cabinets in two-pieces that are butt joined (like the deck beneath the L/S in the photo)? I use 1 and 2 mm thick edgebanding. Cutting these parts with a radius is easy, but putting the edging on and trimming it by hand is difficult. And since ...

Re: Grain Match on multiple adjacent cabinets?

I was wondering if there's been any development on this since the last post? Is it now possible to grain match nest multiple cabinets of a job?

Thanks

Re: Blind Dado Tenon Placement Question

Well, it looks like I've answered my own question. Unless anyone sees anything wrong with doing it this way, here's what I did. Extend the tenons on both sides of the panel (or inversely, extend the tenons on the top & bottom) by entering a negative value the same length as the dado depth. Leave...

Blind Dado Tenon Placement Question

Does anyone know how to make a blind dado tenon go to the end of a part without having a notch at the corner? If you look at this back panel you can see that the tenon on the top left corner extends through to the end of the panel the way I want it to (only because I've setup that end as a butt join...

I see your point Kerry, but I still agree with Gerry. Your comment "The list idea comes up quite often" should indicate that this is something needed. I see this discussion about 2 things; 1) An organized & updated list of requests & upcoming features, and 2) A way to help Thermwoo...
