Easy Euro Door Hinges Maker

Post by jimandi5000 »

Hi all,
I hope you are doing well today.

Just completed a new gadget the "Euro style door hinge pocket maker. To use the tool select the outer edge (closed polyline) of the door and then start the Gadget the dialog will let you put hinges on any side of the door and you can put 2, 3, or 4 hinges on the door. Enter your hinge dimensions on the dialog and they will be saved and reloaded the next time you run the gadget. I looked at the Blum site https://www.blum.com/us/en/products/hin ... /overview/ to get the hole sizes and spacing. Have a look and I need some feedback.

Holy cow, Jim, this looks really cool! You have been busy cranking out some very useful stuff to the forum members.
Im going to download this and see what it does. I only have a small 2 x4’ machine but for hanging cabinet doors this looks very promising. Thank you so much for your time and talent and willingness to share!

I have a chip on my shoulder....several more in my hair and lots more all over my shop floor.

You are so welcome... I physical cannot get in the shop right now so I am trying to learn how to write Vcarve gadgets. If you have a Gadget need... let me know.
Thanks,
Jim

My neighbor was putting cabinets in his shop and asked if he could run some doors on my mill. So I broke out the door/Hinge gadget and he gave me some feedback on how to improve it.

So, here is the 4.0 upgrade...
I've already started upgrading all the user interfaces, Wiki Help and user videos to all of the Easy gadgets and will post them as I complete them.
A quick how to video.

Hi Jim,
Different error. When I pressed the Help button after opening the gadget I received this error. Is it Windows config problem or something missing in the gadget causing this? Or?

2. Is it only the About button

When I press the yes or the no nothing visibly happens. All other button or dialog options function as expected. When I press ok the results are generated.
So, it appears only the "Help" button. BTW, the help on any of screens does the same thing.

Here is the 4.01 hot fix...

Version 4.01 will fix the following:
1. Removed and replaced Java script to open new web page to show the help with html code to avoid the Reg issue
2. Fixed the Hinge offset location if overlap is added.

Sorry to report that the exact same error occurred with the "Help" button.
