Thanks for the kind words but before we prematurely bestow sainthood, you should probably remember that eCabinet Systems is basically a different type of business model, not a gift. We give away the software because we believe we will have a bigger installed base and make more money in the long run ...

Joe, yes they are. They require special tooling that is up-side-down from normal as well as a clamp fixture and a rubber coated handling sheet for the center panel. None of this is all that expensive and the programs come directly from the software.

There is no big secret here. The next build will be more like a version (5.1) in that it has some new features including nested face frames that can use any existing joint to attach the face frame to the cabinet. This is now being beta tested to try to work out any problems before we release. Not su...

Another note on this subject is that we have people within the software team whose entire job is testing and ensuring software quality. In addition, every software engineer spends a portion of their time testing and the beta team spends a great deal of time and effort helping us. We take this very s...

I wish it were that easy. As Dan said, whenever you touch any code you risk breaking something else. Even fixing a bug can cause bugs somewhere else. To address this we have a two prong approach. First, whenever we learn of something we broke, it has top priority and we try to fix it immediately. Th...

We have a lot of different arrangement with a lot of different software suppliers. In general they are based on the number of shops using the software although some are based on the number of registrations. In general, a code that is not used is not registered so does not cost us anything. We know e...

Registration Codes may not be Shared

Through some posts we realize that, in an effort to help their fellow cabinetmakers on weekends, some Members have been supplying others with registration codes generated through our automatic code generator. This can cause serious problems and is not permitted under the program. First, although the...

Paul, we do plan to allow for downloads in the future but we need to develop some new technology first. We decided to tag each design sharing file with the name of both the developer and the client. This way we don't need to add restrictive copy security and yet we can protect the libraries because ...

Interesting thread. I though I might respond to some of the thoughts with some of our own. First, we know there are basic features that are not in the software yet. We hope to address many of these in Version 5 and they continue to have the highest priority. Ideas about the future are just that, the...

In addition to Thermwood, my other passion is cars, currently Corvettes. The first shot is a 29 Ford Tudor I put together. It had an 850HP engine with leaf spring suspension and a wooden trunk on the back, great fun. The second shot is my latest project, a 58 fuel injected Corvette with a four speed...

Great job.

Kerry, this is REALLY nice work! Congrats. The problem of getting the price you deserve is a common one that we are trying to address. One area where we may be able to help is finishing. Regardless of what your finish suppliers are telling you, small cabinet shops do not have access to true high-end...

Mike, it is not on the list for 4.1. Some@folks have built individual cabinets that incorporate several merged cabinets so we have not had a lot of requests for this. Does anybody else need this function?
