Cabinet macro (Ruby) for Kitchen Manufacturer

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Does anyone know of any resources for making macros for cabinets?

I have a Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturer that I use all the time,

I would like to be able to make the labels dynamic to their catalog, and add the catalog to CA

This manufacturer uses 20/20 software for designing and they have their own catalog that works with 20/20.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

I could help you set up something up.  I just charge by the hour for that kind of thing.  If you're interested in discussing further just send me an email.  My email address is down in my signature.

Here are 3 - one evo w drawer I started for a rather difficult catalog- it is not finished but works for many things, then "3inch" is needed for that to work, the last one GerryT gave me and shows promise but needs work.

While I did  a lot of work on these Gerry in particular helped, Michael spent a bit of time going over general Ruby stuff with me and Joe Carrick (Yoda) also played along. So I don't really consider these mine. Besides the two for labels need some work yet. I just have not had the time to finish them off.

To get them fixed I strongly suggest working with Michael (or Joe who also was at one point working on something) -BUT either may want to start from scratch.

FWIW

After my take on using these (and I have placed a decent number of orders based on the "evo w drawer" and it's predecessors) is that trying to make a macro to do an entire catalog is not worth the effort.One that does "most" should suffice. I keep about 2 dozen cabinets in my library that I use often and that require and excessive amount of fiddling to make work in a macro. Most of those are also cabinets that would require a bit configuring to the faces and may also involve listing modifications (which I do in the OIP fields)

Then I just design with normal cabinets and use replace from to put those in so that I have a schedule I can use to generate an order.

 

I have a spot in my calendar to finish off a video about placing an online order from a CA schedule which will get posted (some day :0 but currently I'm working on altering my website to reflect my shift to doing freelance drafting work. So that vid may get bumped out till next week from the looks of it but for an assortment of reasons I have to finish that before the month is out.

      I am trying to show a recessed wall cabinet bottom for inserting a light strip. 
      I need to be able to show the bottom of the cabinet recessed up by 1 1/2" with the sides still down. The doors should cover the recess also.

      Hello, 
      I am applying a wood material to kitchen cabinets and the wood grain is going vertical in the doors and horizontal in the drawers.
      I checked the cabinet specifications and it shows only one material for doors.
      How can I do the wood grain the same direction in the doors and drawers?
      Thank you.

      In X12 I've noticed that when using Structural Member Reporting in a material list, the price column in the list does not appear to be sensitive to whether a "per unit" or "per length" calculation is being performed by the material list.  In both cases, the material list appears to use the same Price variable in the Component Panel of each object.  Does anyone know of some Ruby scripting that could be used to correct this?  Off hand, I'm thinking of a macro inserted into the Price variable on the Component Panel of each structural member that would use the Material List row context to report a price that depends on how the row wants to use the Price.

      OK, so today I learned that Legacy is just a fancy term for obsolete.  See, I do know how to search  
       
      I have numerous macros, from others and some I wrote.  Has there been any enhanced documentation regarding what "migrating" is going to do to my macros and what I can expect? Or how to fix issues? Is this going to put the brakes on my workflow?  I know enough to write small macros for menial tasks, but I do not have an extended knowledge.
       
      Or is this just not a big deal?
