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...

Re: We really need locks

Troy, For the depth of a shelf used as a drawer stretcher simply use a formula for the Shelf depth like Depth -6" (This gives us a 5" Drawer Stretcher because our backs are inset 1".) This will let you get rid of the Phantom Stretcher. There is still no easy fix for the height problem...

Re: Editing DBX's in a batch

Donald,

I don't think you can edit drawer boxes from a batch.

You must create a new drawer in the drawer box editor, make the part editor cuts you want, save it as a new drawer then add it to the batch.

Re: I've been at this for years but making walls....

Wally is on the right track but I would suggest only using Object snap if you are not drawing to a grid. You can use Angle Snap if you want to constrain walls to certain angles but you can always enter the angle you want after setting the wall length. You might also make your pick box a little large...

Re: Part editor question/suggestion

Nat,

It won't make a copy but you can create multiple holes on top of each other (say at origin 0,0) then select them one at a time and use move increment to place them.
Sorry I forgot about the shift key.

Re: Part editor question/suggestion

Nat

In the Hardware Hole Editor,

Create your hole then go to select mode and select it
Right Click then Choose Edit Move Increment
Enter the distance you want to move then use the arrow keys to move it.
