Re: Creating a text object in a gadget

Hi Jim,

Yes I would be interested to look at the code and probably use it in my own to add text to panel shapes which could be "selected" automatically (meaning by code) and then grouped. Is it formatted as a function call ? position, text and size ? How can we go about it ?

Mike.

Re: Kitchen Cabinet Software?

Here is another option. eCabinets from Thermwood. Use it to design your cabinets, do a nesting of all the parts, then you can take the dimensions for the parts and input them into Aspire/V-Carve and cut them on your CNC. Yes, there is a lot of manual work doing the translation, but it would be very...
