We have had a few customers with earlier versions of eCabinets change their shelf pin holes from 5mm to 3/16 by changing to or using fractions. We did not have a 3/16 on the CNC setup at first so we would get an error writing the CNC code. We fixed this by adding a bit definition to include a 3/16 b...

Ok I have been playing around with this arial font. I made this bowl of alphabet soup. No really it is a font made from arcs and lines. These are scaled out from about 1 inch to 12 inchs. After making all the arcs to follow the polylines I got bored and made this board with eCabinets. It was mostly ...

I like the bends you put into this Kerry. Nice work!

By the way tesselation factors control the number of lines in a 3D model. More lines use more memory and computer resourses but produce the smoothest look. I think programmers try to find a balance between performance and the final appearance.

I love this ideal but I really hate polylines, especially if these are blown up to larger sizes. I would rather collect fonts that are made from only arcs and lines.

Maybe I am just being too picky here. :?

Rosettes

Here are some experiments with rosettes that I have been playing around with. I didn't really like all of these but learned a little in the process.

Dan I know you are right about all of this but I would like to mention a couple of things about the other side of this coin and say a big thank you to Thermwood for making it possible to run eCabinets on a Compaq 1.8 GHz. AMD Athlon with 512 ram/nVIDIA NV36 128MB ram video card. I have managed to do...

I just bought Windows One Care. I just let this program do its thing including automatic backups and defragmenting. Plus it lets you control what your computer will do on the web automatically. This thing is a darling and seems to stay out of the way fairly well when I am using my computer. It does ...

I like your experiments. I think you are right by experimenting you can quickly learn program limits and gain a firm understanding of how to use the program.

Good job with the lights. The shadows and light are soft. I find it difficult to get a render to come out like this (still learning). Do you mind if I ask how many times you rendered this to get a result like that? And also if you have the time would you possibly post a picture that shows how your l...

My thinking on this is never use pure black or white. Think of it like this. Black is for shadows and white is for light. I have made off white cabinets render fairly well. I tried some black appliances not long ago in white cabinets and could not get it to work. I ended up changing the appliances t...

Ok I gotta get in on this one. Imagine your whole wall as a monitor and everything you want and more on your wall anytime you want it. Just say computer beam me up. But this is way out in the distant future probably about 3 years or more. I cheated a bit here because I watched a Windows Vista demo a...
