Re: Unnecessary gaps where interruption of locked dado starts

Could also be flex in the machine. My Shopbot is notorious for being a pretty flexible (not in a good way) machine. Doesn't matter how much I keep it tuned up. It just an inherently flexible machine when cutting plywood. One way I've minimized this is to take shallower cuts, thus more passes. It tak...

Re: Door/Drawer face designer issue

Thank you Clint. I couldn't find it addressed in the help files so wasn't sure.

Re: Door/Drawer face designer issue

It's interesting because this happened on only one cabinet in a job of 16 cabinets. I have no clue why it happened only on this cabinet. I used the exact same material and door/drawer type on all the cabinets for door/drawer faces. It's just really strange. One of those almost impossible things to t...

Door/Drawer face designer issue

When using this editor, I chose slab doors and drawer fronts. When I add drawers, image 2 is what happens. Is there a way to rotate the grain of the wood 90 degrees. In the designer dialog there is a "Preview Size" for height and width. I've searched the help files and can't find these men...

Re: Progress bar glitch

Those intermittent issues are a real pain to find. I understand. It certainly doesn't stop a user from working. I normally just move the dialog off the bottom of the screen out of the way and keep going.

Re: Progress bar glitch

I get that regularly too. I don't think I'm ready to take the step Kerry did and get a new computer to make it go away. :shock: Obviously a bug in eCabs software somewhere. I'll let them fix it... :lol:

Re: Removing toe kick and loosing geometry cuts

Good question. I have the same problems. If I have PE cuts on my end panels and decide to remove or add a toe kick, all my end panel PE cuts get deleted. I'm not sure why this happens. Maybe Clint can explain?

Re: Corner cabinet faceframe changes

Thanks Kerry. Yes, this is what I've been seeing happen. It is certainly very different trying to change parameters on an angled corner cabinet versus a square cabinet. So many parameters interact, independent of parameters the user changes. I'm wondering if there is a way for Thermwood to add a che...

Corner cabinet faceframe changes

I'm trying to change the width of my left and right stiles for an angled front corner cabinet from 1.5" to 2.25". With the 1.5" stiles, my opening is 13.97". When I change to 2.25" I adjust my outside scribe by the .75" so that the faceframe should move out. But after m...

Re: Easiest way to edit (change) all the strechers in my seeds

I agree with Mark. Sometimes performing global modifications can have unpredictable results. I've had it happen a couple of times where I had to start over again. I've used the global modification in a batch and in a custom layout with pretty good success. I'd think some sort of script would have to...

Re: Fix vague error messages

That is something I've suggested to Thermwood many time. It would be VERY nice to at least know where to start troubleshooting. I've come across many error dialogs over the years that say nothing about what cabinet, part, etc. the problem is in. Most of the time, I send the job to Thermwood asking f...

Resizing a display panel

Is there a way to resize a display panel? It's a pain to delete and recreate it. Thank you.

Just a shot, would you be willing to share the HSF for this? I still do mine mostly using the table saw.

Thanks!!
