Re: 11/16 or 3/4 ?

Greg, Your face frame components must remain constant. They determine the size of the cabinet wall to wall. In your scenario you design your boxes at 3/4" thickness and butt them tight behind the 1 1/2" stile. When the software adjusts for thickness it will shrink each box behind the face ...

Re: 11/16 or 3/4 ?

Greg, On a face frame cabinet, the face frame is the constant. It defines the width and height of the cabinet.When you change material thickness while writing the TWD the software grows or shrinks every component of the box to adjust for this change in thickness. If your box sides are flush with the...

Re: Associations

Carmen, To do what you want just use an up down stretcher to make your filler. You can use the advanced associations to make it easier to place. The downside is the fact you have to take the cabinet to the Cabinet Editor to change the filler. We use cabinets as fillers as you mentioned above. The ca...

Re: Hinge hole patterns not appearing in cabinet

Greg,
The hinge holes in the door will only show on Slab and MDF Doors. They will not show on 5 piece doors.
By the same token the hole pattern will not show on the face frame.
If you bring your box side flush with the inside of the face frame the hole pattern will show on the box.

Re: Associations

Carmen,

You just save the two cabinets as an assembly.

In the Cabinet Editor click Save then in the save dialog check the Save Assembly button. Everything open in the cabinet editor at that time will be saved as an assembly.

Fred,

I know this is an old thread, but this subject came up on the WoodWeb again and this document was posted. I thought you might find it interesting.

Re: eCabinet Productivity

My premise when I started this thread was that eCabinets is what it is and instead of wishing for the software to change I would look for better ways to use the existing software. At this time the Office is the constraint in our production so I am trying to improve procedures to get the jobs, with c...

Re: Hinge hole patterns not appearing in cabinet

First, check your hole patterns in the hole pattern editor and see what the Negative depth is. You have to enter either a positive or negative depth to tell the software which way the hole goes.

Re: French Cleat - how to edge profile a stretcher

Greg, If you want to cut the part on a router you will probably need to create a v-bit tool and profile the edge in the part editor. You would then need to set up that tool in the Profile Modeler at the control. You can use the same process if you just want it for display purposes but you will proba...

Re: 11/16 or 3/4 ?

Greg,

If you are sending the files to a router you can design using nominal thickness values and correct material thickness when you write the TWD file for the machine. If you are cutting parts manually it is probably good to use actual material thickness in the design.

Re: Radius Compensation

Kim, I had a similar problem once and mine was caused by a curved part that tapered to absolutely nothing. I had to take my file into Contour in the Part Editor and did a small (.0625) filet so the part didn't go to nothing. This allowed the machine to think it could make the turn. Look at your draw...

Re: Profile Modeler

Josh, In control nesting the material does control the tool group but you have to select a tool group in the Part Editor for profiles. I am doing some work for another shop here that Thermwood set up some MDF doors in Quick Cut. It looks like when you select a particular door in Quick Cut it selects...
