04/25/09 - much of our work is specific for particular applications of products that are not able to be posted online because of non-disclosure agreements. Please contact us for particular questions about your custom product line. Quite often, a 20 minute movie will answer your questions - from Design to Submittals to BOM to CAM output --- using your product mix --- generating custom cabinets that fit to a (complex shaped) boat hull, store fixtures, cabinet libraries etc.
10/27/08 - added a few movies to the TopSolid sections. Constraining to the coordinate system and driven vs driving dimensions - also modiffying a drawing after creation to add more variables - this example dealt with transaction top height and countertop height; also an example of taking a pdf file and using it for tracing to create a moulding profile in TopSolid --- also showed how to create it from scratch and save it to the library.
09/11/08 - added a codec installer to eliminate the problems some people are having with the movies --- click on the TopSolid demos and moives tab --- download and install the self-extracting zip file -- it will install the codec needed and play a short movie to confirm it is working on your machine.
Added more brochures --- Links and brochures tab.
More movies --- use the technology that is available to you --- don't watch demos that are being pulled from a library - have the software build YOUR products from YOUR designs...
06/10/08 added additional movies... many of the movies I've created for prospects for TopSolid cannot be posted because of agreements that are in place because of proprietary designs or plans/shapes being given by outside vendors... so if you have a specific application you would like to see, be sure to call us at 866.498.7498.
Added new TopSolid demo movies --- PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU CANNOT VIEW THEM MOVIES - PLEASE SEND AN EMAIL - We can send you a program that will install the needed video codecs in order to set up your computer for viewing.
