I've got a good challenge for the REALLY experienced eCab users here

Postby Donald Thomson » Tue, Jul 03 2018, 1:23PM

Two cabinets that need to fit an irregular wall shape. The attached picture has two cabinets - outlined in red - that I would like to know if it's even possible to do in eCabs? The other option is to design them in Sketchup and go from there. I know the red outline is a little small, but if you zoom in, you can see them.

THanks for any help!!

Hi Donald
My approach would be something like this
If it was a real job with proper sizes I could get it a lot closer to useful.
For a one of, its probably not worth the time. If there were 10- 15 of, yes it would be.
For a quick solution I would cut this much on the machine then finish it with a panel saw.
I changed the right hand cabinet a bit, Not sure if that would work, face frames would change things.
Probably others have more insights or a different aproach.
If others were to share I would be interested also.

Don,
Left of the sink a dishwasher is indicated or did I misread?

Ralph,

Thanks for the reply on this. It is a real project. I'm trying to see if it would be possible to do the weird shaped cabinets in eCabs, or if I need to do them in Sketchup and import the files into Aspire to cut the parts.

It looks like you have something very close to what is needed. Let me clean up the drawings and enlarge the area around those cabinets so the dimensions will be clear.

Don,
I would like to take credit but you have me confused with Mark who did all the work. Good job Mark! My question was about what appears to be a dishwasher "D/W" left of the sink ?

I'm so sorry Mark. Thank you so much for the work you did!!! :beer: :D

I'm going to load the cabinets up and try and see how you did them. I wish I had half the talent as you in doing these challenging projects.

Hi Ralph :) .
Hi Don :) ,
I wouldn't say talent.
I always seem to have a off beat approach.
The guys with the real Talent seem to have drifted away.

The unit with the shelf cutout has been modified in the part editor.
As I said above you have to make a judgment call on which way to do the job.
Is it worth the time and effort to get a perfect presentation as well as perfect cutlist or cnc file?, or do you mainly CNC something like above get the angled shelves and finish it with the panel saw?

Having said that, the more time I spend in the part editor the faster I get.

The unit above is just one corner cabinet, you could take it further by combining 2 or more units into an assembly and phantom parting some pieces, but it all takes time to work stuff like that out.

Been some updates with customer specs. Here is a corner (outlined in RED) that I'm wondering if it is possible to use eCabs to do the design for. Would this be a HIGHLY modified corner cabinet? Or should I plan on designing it in Sketchup? Thanks!!
