    InteriorCad 2017

    Grain matching and sides to floor will both be in the upcoming minor update. Framed fronts are in the works for the 2019 version. We also know about the dovetail drawers. As another US customer has so aptly put it: "Americans still love pickup trucks, guns, and solid wood dovetail drawers".

    Clothes Rail

    This may not be supported. I'd file a bug (with extragroup). It makes sense to have that feature.

    Thanks for the update, @Woodychips ! If you have the time, could you give me an idea as to which are your top three features missing from the new cabinet? What are the barriers you find with it? Thanks!

    How to print door opening symbol in Interiorcad

    Hi just a little update on opening triangles: This now works out of the box, no tweaking required. As an added bonus you can also have additional information about front size and fittings used. This works for drawers also.

    How to use Dowels and Cams in interiorcad

    Hi @Anna X sorry I am replying late - I have just seen your post now. Do you already have interiorcad? In that case, simply choose the dowel from the mode bar when the single connector tool is active and click on the grids that appear once the tool is running. Hold down Shift to place dowels on all grids of the same type simultaneously. Same for connectors, drawers, hinges etc. Let me know if you need more help and I'll make a short movie for you as soon as I get the chance!

    You are right, the contour is not designed to adjust the router's z on the fly. As for the drillings, conversion is done automatically in cases where no matching drill is found for a given diameter. I understand the need to stop the tool to return home between each milling. I'm not totally sure it would do that, actually. AFAIR, it only returns to safe distance between different directions of drillings. There is a setting for that in your machine configuration. Anyway, if this works for you, that's fantastic and the result looks promising!

    Ok, I thought you had VectorWop, our VWX-to-machine interface. It comes with a built-in DXF output (and one for Hops, too, actually). You are the Bert I know from "forest+", right?

    Hey Bert, I was wondering how long until you came up with something in Marionette. You know you can use interiorcad's DXF output to get the milling info? Post us some photos when you're done. Nice work!

    Issues with updating new Hafele Handles

    Hi Ron, the Classic system needs manual migration. The new system will migrate itself. However, since you are still on Classic, you need to set up your tools for the custom-parts-based new system first. Where are you based and who is your dealer? I can contact them and advise how to go about.

    Issues with updating new Hafele Handles

    @Armari InteriorsI'm posting a reply to a private conversation here so everybody can see the answer. You asked how to create a drilling that will go through both the drawer front and the drawer box front of the cabinet. The "derive Part" is legacy technology, as is the cabinet "Classic". My best advice is to start using the new system, which was designed to allow any custom milling. I have made a quick video to show you how to achieve what you need. This will work fine in interiorcad 2017, too.

    Issues with updating new Hafele Handles

    That's what I mean. It's unreliable. Download the file as STEP format and drag it into your VWX file.

    Final 350 dpi render, suggestion request

    Final 350 dpi render, suggestion request

    Ah I think that's where the problem is: Try using "HDRI White" or set the saturation of your panorama to something like 300% (possibly more - you can do that in Vectorworks). Panoramas are problematic in that way because they tint the rendering. I use HDRI White almost exclusively now.

    Issues with updating new Hafele Handles

    You just paste it in. Only works reliably on Windows though because of the JAVA they use. I always opt for STEP format, download, then drag and drop into VWX. HTH

    Issues with updating new Hafele Handles

    Here is the file. For non-interiorcad users: Use the Symbol insertion tool to place the handles. The red drillings will turn black only if the handle is placed on an eligible object (i.e. an interiorcad 3D custom part). If you use simple extrudes, no CNC drilling information is passed on.
