The following release notes apply to Toolbox build 24.1.0207.641


3D Drawing Fixes

Several fixes have been applied to specific issues users reported centered around 3D drawings:
 
  1. Users reported an issue when creating products with interior corners: sometimes, the interior corner notch would be drawn as part of a circle, being shaped incorrectly in model space. This issue has been resolved and should no longer occur- interior corner notches should now be shaped correctly and without strange alterations.

 
  1. Some users experienced an issue with the 3D representations and 2D drawings of their products in the 2D Part Editor mismatching, with correct machining often applied, but the visuals of the machining shown in the actual 3D representation was inaccurate to the drawing. This issue has been resolved- 2D drawings converted to 3D using the 2D Part Editor and vice versa should now be displaying accurate representations.

 
  1. Some users reported an issue with the 3D representation of quarter cabinets, with the lines of the 3D drawing failing to register collinear lines, and thus, the products would have visible clipping in the 3D drawing. This issue has been resolved- quarter cabinets should no longer have a problem with collinear lines or collision between product polylines, clipping, or visuals misrepresenting specifications. 

 
  1. An issue was reported by users in the Component Cabinet Library, with some using the Microvellum MDF Door System finding the profile of their door would not draw on the left side when the value of “MDF Corner Radius” was altered to any other value but 0. This issue has been resolved- the profile on the left side of the MDF Door System should now draw properly, regardless of the corner radius.
 
 
  1. Users reported an issue with the 3D representation of products with shelving units, such as half lapped internal shelves. The shelves would fail to display in the 3D drawing or would clip through the other borders of the product. This issue has been resolved- products with shelving units should no longer have issues with shelves failing to register or display properly in 3D drawings. 
  1. Users utilizing the base front stretcher in custom products found the product would sometimes not draw in 3D correctly, despite being coded and cut correctly. This issue has been resolved- products with the base front stretcher should no longer have issues with displaying their 3D representation. 

 
  1. Some users reported that there was an issue with the 3D representation of dovetails, with the dovetails on their drawer boxes appearing incorrect or failing to conform to their measurements unless a .01” tool was used in machining. This issue has been resolved- dovetails on drawer boxes should display properly when machined with appropriate tools, not just a .01".

 
  1. There were reportedly some issues with the 3D representation of hinges in some user’s projects, with the hinges being drawn in 3D being visible through the panels of their products in the model space and renders. This issue should no longer occur.

 
  1. An issue was reported by users with the 3D representation of camlock dowels in model space. This issue would result in the dowel inserts being separated from their holes, and has been resolved. Dowels should no longer appear broken off from their respective holes in 3D drawings. 
  1. An issue was experienced by some users with the 3D representation of the dados in their corner cabinets, wherein dado machine tokens would apply incorrectly, resulting in the dado disappearing from the drawing. This issue has been resolved- dados should not recede or disappear, and dado machine tokens should apply as specified. 

 
  1. Another issue with 3D representation of dados was reported by some users, wherein parts or components with dado tokens and dado routing applied would display incorrectly in model space.  This issue was resolved- dado tokens and dado routing should no longer have issues displaying properly within model space or 3D drawings. 
  1. An issue was reported wherein 3D drawings utilizing dado tokens and assigned to cut using profile cutters would not have the 3D visual of the part be shown unless the machine token was .01 smaller than the thickness of the part. This issue has been resolved- dado tokens on parts with profile cutters assigned should no longer have an issue with appearing in 3D drawings. 

Flatshot Fix

 
  1. An issue with flatshots not hiding certain lines and areas that are meant to be hidden by default in reports, due to the tokens not processing was reported. Users who created work orders with flatshot tokens set to be processed found that the tokens didn’t process in the drawing, leading to an incorrectly drawn flatshot. This issue was resolved, and flatshots should now have their expected lines hidden and 3D lines displaying properly. 

Factory Workbook Overhauls

Changes have been made regarding the accessibility and usability of the Factory Workbook, to best ensure the software does not experience any issues with the data. In conjunction with this, several issues that surrounded the Factory Workbook have been resolved:

 
  1. The Library Update Utility tool has had an update to its dialogue box prior to using the Library Update Utility, which offers users greater clarity regarding the function of the tool in relation to the Factory Workbook. 
  1. There was an issue when downloading library updates with the Library Update Utility, wherein the new, updated prompts, lookup tables, etc. would not be received within the project level Factory Workbook, only the library level one. 
  1. There was an issue with the Factory Workbooks found when downloading Foundation Library cumulative updates via the Library Update Utility tool, with some users reporting that upon downloading the update, their Factory Workbook would revert to the template workbook of their previous library version, erasing any custom changes made within the workbook.
  1. An issue was reported with the lack of a dedicated UI button for saving changes to a Factory Workbook when working within an SQL environment, which led to difficulties with settings and changes being reverted after a short period of time. 
All these issues have been resolved, and a series of overhauls have been made to the Factory Workbook to accommodate and fix these issues: 

 
  1. A new permission has been added to the administrative settings within the software, under the “Projects” section: “Allow Project Factory Workbook”, which allows administrators to restrict access to the Project Factory settings. 
  1. Options have been added to the Project Factory Settings to allow for the management of Factory Workbooks:

  1. Enable Project Factory: Allows users to enable/disable the project Factory Workbook. If a project Factory Workbook does not exist, the default Factory Workbook is cloned.
  2. Delete Project Factory: Deletes the project Factory Workbook, even if it is currently disabled.
  3. Clone Default Factory: Clones the default Factory Workbook over the current project Factory Workbook.
  4. Overwrite Default Factory: Overwrites the default Factory Workbook with the project Factory Workbook.
All these options prompt confirmation dialogs before allowing users to proceed with any of them, to ensure there are no erroneous changes to settings. 


  1. Work orders using a customized project level Factory Workbook can now be processed simultaneously with a work order that utilizes the default Factory Workbook, with the work order creation UI being altered to reflect this: projects in work orders using the project level Factory Workbook will have red text, with a legend placed on the bottom of the UI to distinguish the two. 

  1. The Library Update Utility tool has had a section added to its selection, indicating whether Factory Workbooks should be updated as well, under the “Factory Components” section of the Library Specification Group Components to be updated.
These Factory Workbook overhauls are intended to be further expanded upon in upcoming builds.

Material Pointer Fix

  1. Some users experienced an issue with material collection pointers, wherein users who assigned material collection pointers to a part, then processed a work order with that part assigned would find that the LinkID subassembly of the material collection pointer would not fully apply to the assigned part, with only certain materials carrying it over. This issue was resolved- parts with material collection pointers should no longer have difficulties or issues with LinkID or any other assigned aspect being applied as expected.
