Drawing Help Needed

Postby Nat Wheatley » Tue, Oct 19 2010, 4:39PM

I'm looking to add a section to my website that shows each of the individual units(closets) that we offer. Using E-cabinets, I'd like to somehow take a 'snapshot' of each of the units, which I could then post on the site. I use the software daily for cutting, but have done very little drawing rendering with it. I'm looking for a set of simple, repeatable steps that I could do to get a decent display of each cabinet, maintaining the same scale so that the viewer can see how one compares to the other in terms of size. All units are 30" Wide, white (with closet rod and hanger), and range in height from 12" to 96" Tall.

I just spent a fair amount of time (hours), trying to draw a wall, add lights, place a unit, and get a decent image, and the results were hapless. At the rate I was going I could build each unit, hang it on the wall, and take a picture in less time that I could produce a decent image on the computer...

Thanks in advance.

I'll keep my fingers crossed.

The images don't need to be anything over the top, just a few levels of detail better than what's displayed in the Cabinet Editor.

Nat...
We both suffer from the same ailment. "Cutters Lament" I believe. The first cabinet I designed was cut on the CNC. Never did anything with the CL. I am in a totally different market now and I will need to learn the feature. Good luck.

Misery loves company! I'm having a much harder time learning the drawing side of the software, than the machining side...
