Opening Files

Postby John J. Desmond » Fri, Feb 01 2008, 10:41PM

I downloaded a tv file that was an .esa file. I can't seem to open it. I saved it in the Import, sample stl's file. It appears with an ecabinets logo but will not open. What am I doing wrong? I tried the woman sitting file also and can't seem to open it. :wall: Help....

John,

A .esa file is an Assembly file. You must save it in your eCabinets/Assemblies/a directory you create
You can then open this file in the Cabinet/Assembly editor or place it in a room as an assembly.
If you want to create a display object out of this assembly just open it in the Cabinet/Assembly editor
Left click and drag a box around the assembly to select it then right click and choose Export.
Export this to a directory you can find (I created one in the eCabinets directory called exports)
Next you can open this exported file in the Display Part Editor Make any changes to the texture etc. of the parts by right clicking on the individual parts and then save this as a display object (which will put it in your eCabinets/imports directory.
the TV will now be available as a display Object.

Kerry,

Thanks for the information. I guess I need to apologize for not searching the posts first. After posting I researched and was able to learn how to do it. Your help and quick response if much appreciated though. Look forward to learning from you and others again.
