Easy Drawer Maker Gadget

Post by jimandi5000 »

Hello All,

I have added some new Joint types to the Easy Drawer Maker Gadget. Beyond the Dog Bone, I have added the Blind Dog Bone, T-Bone Joint, Blind T-Bone, Sniglet Joint and the Blind Sniglet. I also added a HTML format BOM (thank you jlavintx63) to the gadget.

This Version 4.3

Supports: 10.5 and up

Install
1. Download the gadget EasyDrawerMaker.zip that is attached to this post.
2. Rename it from EasyDrawerMaker.zip to EasyDrawerMaker.vgadget
3. In Vectric Pro or Aspire click on Gadgets -> Install Gadget and navigate to where you downloaded the file to, select it and click Ok.

It should give you a pop up saying the gadget was installed and you should see EasyDrawerMaker in the Gadgets menu.

Steps for Use:

1. Setup a new drawing with the proper material size
2. Run the EasyDrawerMaker gadget
3. Enter the proper values for the drawer opening, clearances, and the materials thickness for the drawer parts
4. Open the Project menu, select where to write the BOMs
5. Open the Milling menu, check the values and select the joint type
6. On the Main menu, select the tooling you use to mill the drawer parts
7. Press the OK button

Hello Sawmiller,

Well, I tested the code and you are correct, it need to be fix. I will work on it as soon as I complete updating then Easy Cabinet Maker gadget. I am making good headway and shouldn't take me too long.

Thanks for letting me know about this.

Have a great day!
:)
Thanks,
Jim
