If you use the normal dovetail gadget you can make the sides without dovetails on the bottom. Little bit more work though.

This looks like a pretty cool gadget. Maybe I am asking too much... Thanks


I tested using the node edit mode to delete the dovetails on the bottom- when I recalculated, the imported pin carvings created an error, but that didn't seem to have an effect on the rest of the recalculation and it (appears) to have worked!

not a perfect workaround, but it seems to be a workaround for this very cool gadget. I'm quite excited to give it an actual try on my machine :)

Hope this helps-

its there now, just downloaded it
http://gadgets.vectric.com/V9/box_creator.html


I have downloaded that particular file and it does not install. Noted that the file extension is .vgadget and not .exe so this is probably why it would not install.

Vgadget is the correct extension for V9 products that support gadgets. They can be installed by double clicking the file or by using the Install option on the gadgets menu.

I am having trouble trying to install the boxmaker gadget
Does it work with Aspire 8.5?

How do I get it installed?

Cheers

It's not available on the pre-version 9 gadget site and the v9 format gadgets won't install in earlier versions.

The dovetail gadget is available though and you can make boxes with that - http://gadgets.vectric.com/V8/dovetail.html
