Face frame and memory

Postby Jean G Voyer » Sat, Apr 05 2008, 8:41AM

Does face frame cabinets use substantially more memory then frame less cabinets in cabinet editor and custom layout?

Jean,
If you look at the file size in the following directory you can see the difference.
C:\Program Files\Thermwood\eCabinet Systems\cabinets\Standard Cabinets

I have removed the Doors and the shelf from the framed cabinet to get the numbers below.
Standard Base Frameless (file size) = 179kb
Standard Base Framed (file size) = 279kb (Without doors and shelf)

I think the files size would get bigger if you added addition FF construction (puzzle joint FF, Blind or full dadoing it to the cabinet, or adding Stiles and rails)

Thanks Todd.
That answer my question very well and it tells me why I have been having so much problems with rendering a particular job I am working on.

I have a feeling the problem may be something else. Face frames do not normally slow down the rendering of eCabinet Systems software. I have no experience using the puzzle joints.
