Well FWIW, I just managed to do the opposite. I typed out a reply to one of your responses, and it somehow disappeared. For now I'll say thanks very much for the info, its very helpful.

Re: Drawing Closet Systems

Tim, Thanks very much. I was thinking it would be cumbersome to create one custom cabinet for each wall, but I could likely build a library of some of the more popular wall configurations, and resize/customize those as needed. I'll play around with that and see what type of time it's taking. What do...

Drawing Closet Systems

I use Ecabinets daily for cutting parts for closet projects, but have never taken the time to learn how to use the drawing portion of the software. I draw everything in KCD, then enter then manually enter the units into Ecabinets to create a batch file. I haven't invested the time to learn to draw a...

Re: Applying Updated Hole Patterns

Thanks, I'll play around with it some more to see just what does what.

Thanks again for the help, I hadn't even realized the software had this feature.

Re: Applying Updated Hole Patterns

Thanks. If I don't enter a source or output directory, where then do the new cabinets get saved to?

Also what boxes should I be checking on the first page of the 'Item Modification Dialog' when I'm leaving the two directory boxes blank?

Re: Applying Updated Hole Patterns

Thanks very much, worked well following those steps. It did seem to disregard the cabinets I had selected, though and apply the changes to the entire library, but wasn't an issue here.

Thanks again, you saved me quite a bit of time.

Applying Updated Hole Patterns

Once I edit a hole pattern, in this case it's for an RTA fitting, is there a way to apply this updated pattern to all cabinets in a library?

Re: Order of Drilling Stacked Holes

Thanks Brad, I'll do some air cuts and see what those do. Oddly, I noticed this morning that if cutting both holes with the spindle it will cut the 20mm hole first, then the 10mm, move to the next location and drill the 10mm hole then the 20mm. Its alternates the order as it moves from fitting to fi...

Re: Order of Drilling Stacked Holes

Hi, thanks very much for the feedback. David, I may end up doing as you do. I haven't had much luck drilling system hole cleanly through material, but I have some leeway on the holes as they'll be covered with a 15mm cap, which should hide any blowout. Neville, I haven't had the courage to chuck a 2...

Order of Drilling Stacked Holes

The attached image shows a hole pattern I'm needing help with. The yellow is a 20mm hole, 14mm deep, the red is a 10mm hole 19mm (full depth of the material). In the SB Link, I'm using my spindle to 'drill' these holes. At present, it creates the 10mm hole first, then the 20mm hole. I'd like to reve...

Re: Frameless Corner Cabinet with Angled Front

My vote would be for an option to add material to the sides, if desired.

It's very odd that it's factored in automatically, without any indication of it doing so. It's a mistake waiting to happen.

Frameless Corner Cabinet with Angled Front

Can someone tell me why the software extends the depth on this type of cabinet by the thickness of the side panels? I enter a left and right depth of 304 and it produces parts for a 323 deep cabinet. The only thing I can think of it that it allows for the sides to be trimmed at the same angle to mat...

Thank you for 'No Drilling'

Just used this option in the SBLink and it helped me salvage a sheet that I had mistakingly run with 'no outline cuts' selected. Thanks very much for adding this feature in.

Re: Oversized Holes

Thanks very much for the feedback, I'll take a look at the machine tomorrow. What's odd is that it comes and goes, and when it does happen it's confined to a single job, but happens all throughout that job.

Re: Oversized Holes

Hi, same material used from job to job, no changes in the link settings. The same bit is used for multiple jobs. One job (most) will be fine, then on the next, all the 8mm holes are oversized, then the next job they're fine again.
