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...

Select all lines in the drawing then click on the mirror function and choose to mirror to a line. click on the line you created and this will rotate the drawing...

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...

Profile Modeler

Is it possible to associate a specific tool group from the Profile Modeler to a cabinet. For example I have fluted columns that I want to add to Quick Cut but they need to associate a specific tool group from the Profile Modeler when that cabinet is loaded. I don't want the operator to have to set t...

Re: Door swing

Carmen, I place pulls on the doors to designate swing. For things like trash and spice pullouts I place the pull at the top center ( or bottom center for uppers) to signify no hinge. I also place display objects to show the trash or spice pullout. Image007.jpg Be sure to tell the client that the pul...

Re: eCabinet Productivity

Hey Scott,

Won't I still need to open each individual cabinet in the Line Drawing editor and hide parts to get the diagram?

Re: eCabinet Productivity

Ralph,
It probably is a wish list item but right now my wish is aimed more at the things Scott is doing. I think the things he is discussing in his videos will get me there but finding the time (and in my case finding the desire) to do it myself is hard to come by.

Re: eCabinet Productivity

Leo, That is the way I have been doing it. I do the same for elevations, I remove all the parts that get in the way then pick nodes. I timed dimensioning a face frame cabinet with one mid stile and two mid rails. If picking the nodes goes well it takes 2 minutes 15 seconds to take the cabinet to the...
