 Additions in Build 6.2:


Auto Dimension in Wall Elevation View

The auto dimensioning feature for the Wall Elevation View shows you a quick view of dimensions between cabinets and the overall wall dimensions. Settings in the right click menu allow you to filter which dimensions are displayed.

Scaled Prints in Wall Elevation View

Scaled printing iis an option from the right click menu. It  allows you a quick way to create a measurable print that can then be given to an architect.

Cross Section Walls

Allows you to create a cross-sectioned view inside a cabinet. This new cross-section view is automatically created on a new page after selecting somewhere on a cabinet (the red line then appears and creates the cross-section).

Export to DXF

Lets you create a DXF from an overhead view of a layout, front view of a wall, or a cabinet. The DXF can then be loaded into a CAD program for additional information to be added.

Disable Enhanced Pocketing

Enhanced pocketing was a feature added in an earlier version of eCabinet Systems and Control Nesting. Those with older machines cannot use this feature, so the ability to disable enhanced pocketing is a way to keep from having errors at the machine in that case.

Cabinet List Report

Creates a report that lists the cabinets in a batch job or room layout. This report can be exported to Excel.

Scaled Prints for Vertical Walls in Line Drawing Editor

Ability to Change Edge Banding Thickness

Allows you to change the thickness of the edge banding when creating CNC jobs rather than having to replace the material in the job.

 Display in Millimeters as well as Meters

Previously, a displayed dimension over 1000mm displayed in meters with decimal places. Now we have added the ability to display it in just millimeters.
