Re: Clearing KD/RTA defaults

Michael, I think that is shelf hardware not KD's Before opening the cabinet delete that item number from your hardware in Define Hardware. I found it in Shelf Hardware. Now when you open the cabinet a dialog will pop up asking if you want to add the hardware. Select that hardware Item number and cho...

Re: Clearing KD/RTA defaults

Ralph

I guess I should have tried it before I spoke. I guess I have never removed the KD hole patterns I replace them with a hole pattern with no depth I created called No RTA,
this lets me keep the lock dado without having a KD.

Re: sloped ceiling with coffures and soffits

This coffered ceiling is just a single cabinet made from a material 4" Beams. You can put a back in if you want a wood look above the beams but it makes lighting the room harder.

This is an old design of mine using this technique.

Re: joinery between 2 cabinets in an assembly

Alain,

Try building your cabinet with only partitions, (no left and right ends) The partitions can become the ends and will let you place shelves with different joinery on each side.
You may need to use some Phantom Parts.

Alain,

If you want shelf pin holes on both sides just Check the Thru Holes box in the adjustable shelf Hole Settings.

Re: Newport Block Front Chest

I had to put this project on the back burner again. I was playing with the sliding dovetail but I never got it implemented. The Feet were another part I didn't have the machining down for but most of the other parts are ready to go. I was able to do the dovetails on the drawer boxes but would have t...

Re: Design Sharing similar to Production Sharing?

I think that is a great idea Tony, I am about to launch Windswept Prairie Design for just that. Not only would I like to pick up some additional design and cabinet engineering work, in the near future I plan to open the Online Store where Thermwood and eCabinets users can purchase complete Cabinet L...

Re: joinery between 2 cabinets in an assembly

Alain, Create a fixed shelf with the joinery you want on the outside of the box. Use insets to take the shelf outside the box and touching the side you want the joinery on. Use a negative inset (I used 1") so you still have a shelf with joinery Clipboard02.jpg Turn the shelf into a Phantom Part...

Re: DXF and shape manager

Bill,
Try saving the .dxf as an AutoCAD R12 file and see if it will open.

If that doesn't work you might try exploding the file in AutoCAD then save it as an AutoCAD R12 .DXF.

Re: Rendering - lights wash out one wall

Tim, Lighting just takes a lot of experimentation. Start with light fixtures placed in the room where they would actually be at the height they would actually be. Use the lowest light intensity you can to get the effect you are looking for and add any light fixtures at different room heights to take...

Re: Rendering - lights wash out one wall

Tim, The "Wash Out" is being caused by the lights inside your upper cabinets from too much reflected lights. Adding shine values to every texture helps. I removed all your lights and just placed two of the ceiling fans in the room, one in the center at ceiling height and one outside the ro...

Re: Rendering - lights wash out one wall

Tim, I copied this from a post I made years ago on lighting: Use as few lights as possible. I usually place two overhead and one just below counter top height. To adjust intensity you have to render the presentation view with the light fixtures showing then right click on a light and adjust the inte...
