Getting Started

When you open Cabinetcut, you will see 3 tabs across the top of the window: Data Entry, Output, and Setup.

The first thing that you need to do is to set the size of the sheet material that you are using.  There is a pull down list on the Data Entry page, initially populated with standard metric sheet sizes. 

If the size you require is not there, or you wish to change units, go to the Setup page.

On the Setup page, there is a row of tabs. In the Preferences tab, there are 3 panels- Edging Functions, Other Preferences, and Pre-Set Material Sizes.

At this stage, leave the Edging Function turned off.

In the Other Preferences panel, there is a pull down list of units, as well as a setting for the Kerf (the allowance for the thickness of your saw blade).

The “Automatically enter data on last tab” function is really for the expert, and allows for fast data entry.  Leave this unchecked until you are comfortable with the data entry interface.

The Pre-Set Material Size panel is where you can enter and remove new sheet sizes. Note that this is set as Height and Width- the output pages are formatted for the sheet to be standing up, which will give the most easily readable layout.
