Maple Mantel

Postby George Davidson » Thu, Oct 26 2006, 2:42PM

For one of our builders we trim here houses.
I took it to the new house today and came back with
2 more mantels to make and a bar for one of the basements.

I am in fact designing a couple of mantles myself, I am trying to learn ecabinet systems along the way. The million dollar question is, were these desgined with with ecabinets systems and is it appropriate to ask or borrow the wonderful design of the mantle I am looking at? Thanks Mark

Hey George

You need to zip assemblies before posting them. Internet Explorer thinks .esa files are streaming audio and opens them instead of downloading them.

Yep, you got it right on first try!!! Thanks for posting it for everyone George. This will help many users learn how to make designs other than cabinets.

Craig

Extract the assembly to one of your folders in \"Assemblies\" then you can load it into the cabinet/assembly editor as you would any other assembly.

You will have to add the materials used in the assembly when you open it or substitute different materials for them.

Hi Dan, I am trying to learn this also. When I extracted this it became a .esa file that the program did not acknowledge. What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance for your help. Joe

Welcome to the family Joe!

Where did you extract the file to?

It has to be placed into one of the subdirectories underneath Assemblies (C:\\Program Files\\Thermwood\\eCabinet Systems\\Assemblies).

If you have never created additional folders in Assemblies there will only be one named Standard and you can put it there.

Then you open it with the Cabinet/Assembly Editor but click the Assemblies radio button and it will show up in the list.

Thanks fr the welcome Dan. I use Mozilla and it opens a download folder. It unzips a file with a .esa ending. I can get it to the assemblies folder all right but ecabs won't recognise it. It looks for a *.esj type file. I must be doing something wrong. Thanks. Joe

Joe,

Move the .esa file from the assemblies folder to the assemblies/Standard folder (the \"Standard\" folder is probably the only folder in the assemblies directory) then try Dan's method of opening the file again. Keep posting your results until you have success - that's what we are all here for :D

Welcome to the family!
