Use the trim function to j...

Re: Nesting and added sheets

Hey Thom, yeah I have use the nest to edge of sheet, I don't like to as some of our edges are not real good, I still like to get a little trimmed off a sheet. I suppose I just find it funny that if I nest and it says I can't cut this piece and then I give it one sheet the right size it uses this to ...

Nesting and added sheets

We have our material set up in eCabinets as 2410x1210. If I get a part that is too big I measure the sheets and add a sheet of that size. We do this because our sheets tend to vary in size so 99% of the time our jobs cut out fine. Every now and then we need to cut something 2400 long which won't cut...

Re: Edgebanding Deck

Same thing happened to me, started with a cabinet that had no deck, added a deck then tried to put edgebanding on. No front edge available in edgebanding. Went back to construction settings and found the front construction of the deck to be blank, change this to butt and it is then available for edg...

Re: Getting to HOT!!!

Hi Thom, don't know if this will help, we used the Onsrud cutters on a machine at a place I worked at a while ago, while I can't remember the exact router specs or the speeds we ran them, I remember we use to run the bit at 100% through 16mm chipboard then with the same settings, back it down 50% - ...

Re: New Version download

Hey Thom, do you mean how many Kiwi's living in Australia are using eCabs, cos that would be heaps, If you meant how many Kiwi's still living in NZ using it, I'd have to say both of them.


BTW new version rocks! Thanks Thermwood !

Re: This might be helpful

Yes Thom, this will do that....and more. You feed your machining times into this and the system then shows you what's being worked on, how much longer the job has to go etc etc. It will track what is going overtime, reworks. I know your only interested in one section of the factory and this will tra...

Hey Thom, If you want to know what your guys are doing in the factory, look at these guys. We put this in a month ago and I must say I'm impressed. We are still in the early stages of setup and running but it's already giving us great feedback on our factory. And they are closer to you lol http://ww...
