Jimbo,

Faster horses, younger women and better drugs!

No problem with the double milling.

Hey Jim!

First off Kudos to you! This gadget is great!

I did find a small bug with the face frames though. Not that I am milling face frames but I do like the reference. It draws them at the full height of the cabinet which is fine for the wall cabs but not the base cabinets :) There is also a typo "Shelf End Clarence" :wink:

Howdy Jimbo,

Happy Thanksgiving!

I will give the new version a try, I am sure you have made some positive changes.

I think a video would be great! Save some time learning the gadget.

'til Valhalla

Jimbo,

Many thanks for your effort!

How do I remove the older rev's of Easy Cabinet Maker?

My gadget list is getting crowded.

For Windows 10 (and presumably recent previous versions of Windows) you can find them at:

Code: Select all

C:\Users\Public\Documents\Vectric Files\Gadgets
Within that will be your product (Aspire or VCarve) and within that the old versions of Easy Cabinet Maker that you no longer need.

Howdy everybody,

I hope you are having a great day.

I received a message on my latest update that some of the Assembly Pilot Holes were doubled up (sitting directly on top of each other).
It was a quick fix and wish I had caught it before I posted.
Please find the attached zip file containing EasyCabinetMaker Version 11.9

Error Fixed:
1. Double stacked Assembly Pilot Holes

Supports:
Vectric Aspire and V Carve Pro versions 10+

Next Steps:
1. Update help files
2. Make a "How To" video on this gadget

Any issues or request?

Thanks Jimbo,

I will take a look at it as soon as I get my server back up.

Attached is a variation of the boxes I suggested for a gadget consideration. I realize it is really just boxes but could be built like a cabinet.

We sure need a cabinet door gadget using VCarve and staying within a certain spec.

Carpe diem
