Latest Cut Ready Update Adds the Combination Feature to Bath Cabinets

Posted by Duane Marrett on Tue, Jul 07, 2020

Tags: Thermwood, software update, Announcements, Cut Ready, Cut Center, Cut Center Updates, Bath Cabinets, Combination Cabinets, Options

Cut Ready’s Bath cabinets now have the option to combine into one larger combination cabinet.  We successfully introduced this feature several months ago for kitchens and are expanding it to include bath cabinets too.  As customers have found, there are many benefits with combination cabinets over the traditional single cabinet layouts.

Some Benefits:

  • Less material & expendables (labels, tooling, etc.)
  • Less parts to sort, assemble, edge band or potentially damage
  • Increased cabinet space
  • Better grain matching
  • Easier to level/straighten one cabinet vs. multiple cabinets
  • Reduced labor and overhead
  • Increased profits

Latest Cut Ready Update Adds Combination Cabinets and Much More

Posted by Duane Marrett on Mon, Aug 12, 2019

Tags: Thermwood, software update, Announcements, Cut Ready, Cut Center, cabinets, Cut Center Updates, Combination Cabinets, Dovetail Drawerbox

At the recent AWFS show, Thermwood announced exciting new features for its Cut Ready systems. Called “Combination Cabinets” this creates a single structure comprised of multiple cabinets, and like all Cut Ready products it all happens with no CNC programming, making the Cut Ready Cut Center even more valuable.

But, what about all the folks who already have Cut Centers who don’t have this feature? The good news is that with the next free system update, they also get all the new features (even though they didn’t exist when the machine was bought new).

Cut Centers don’t go obsolete, they become more valuable over time.

This latest update features the addition of Combination Cabinets, dovetail drawer box updates and the ability to generate a dimensional listing of all face frame parts.  No matter if your Cut Ready/Cut Center is brand new or was the first one delivered, this will update your machine to the latest features available for you to use, and it’s free.

New Combination Cabinets Feature Added

One of the most important time and material cost saving features ever released – Combination Cabinets – allows you to easily create large kitchen cabinets with multiple sections.  This feature reduces your machine time by 25 to 35 percent and your part count by 50 percent or higher, all without the need for a programmer or expensive design software.

By customizing the size and style of each opening, you can now create endless combinations for both frameless & face frame kitchen cabinets.  Choose from many different options for these sections from one or two doors, with/without drawers, false fronts, open sections, slotted areas for storage along with numerous other variations.

Latest Cut Ready Update Summary

Included in this update is the addition of Artie, a new Outdoor Cabinets Library, Publisher improvements and the addition of Lock Dowels.  We are constantly adding new features and abilities to the Award-Winning Cut Ready Cut Center

Included in this update is the addition of Artie, a new Outdoor Cabinets Library, Publisher improvements and the addition of Lock Dowels.  

 

Update adds Artie

This latest update adds Artie to your Cut Center!

Artie has actually been hiding out behind the scenes in the Cut Ready control this whole time, but he has never made an appearance until now. He is the first A.I. dedicated to making your manufacturing life easier to handle, and with this latest update, we flipped on his switch!  While he is a CNC programmer and designer at heart, he also watches over your shoulder to make sure everything goes smoothly and efficiently. 

You tell him what you want and he creates a program to make it. Be it cabinets, doors, moldings or furniture, Artie will program it for you! 

These are not pre-programmed libraries. No part programs exist in the control until Artie creates them.  He is already capable of programming tens of millions of unique products and is constantly learning how to make and do more and more new things. Artie is easy enough that virtually anyone can work with him with little or no training. For more on Artie, click here.

New Material Definitions

This update also includes some new material definitions for Artie.  We've given him all the information he needs to know about plastic.  You can now machine anything out of plastic with the knowledge that Artie will program the machine correctly.  Why plastic?...we've also given Artie definitions for another line of cabinets for outdoor use...more info below:

Outdoor Cabinet Library

Specifically designed to withstand the elements, these outdoor cabinets can handle the extreme heat out west, or the salty weather on the coast.  Since they are made from Starboard material, they will last for many years (they are sun-proof, water-proof, and rust-proof), and add style to outdoor living with little to no maintenance.  They also use Cut Ready’s “Slot Slide” technique for drawer boxes.  

While this collection includes typical kitchen cabinet designs, we’ve also added specialty items like countertop cabinets, carts, storage cabinets, cutting boards and cabinets to house a grill…just to name a few.

Publisher Updates

The Publisher allows eCabinet users to publish their own designs into Cut Ready.  With this latest update, you can either cut the Doors & Drawer Boxes exactly how you designed them, or choose from the stock Cut Ready versions...and there's a lot to choose from!  Just tell Artie which version of Drawer Boxes or Doors for your design, and let him take it from there!

Lock Dowel Cabinet Construction

We are working to keep up with the increase in different cabinet fasteners available in the industry today, and are constantly adding them to Artie's cabinet definitions.  This latest one added is called the Lock Dowel.  For more details on this method, please click here.
