Xsede Undersurface Support Leg
Thank you Lori for the notification. You may be looking for model #45F0227USP. Use quick search in CAP for locating however it will be moving. Currently you will find this item under Structure/ T-Legs/ Undersurface Support. Stay tuned for the new location in an upcoming release.
Xsede Tech Tray Surface Brackets
An additional note of Single or Dual-Sided Tech Tray Surface Brackets has been added to the description in CAP. This additional detail to the description should appear shortly.
Priority Snap Point
When working with Kimball Office product having your snap point set on node is critical for the placement of content. Have you run into a node that was missing? Thank you Adam for noting model # 53KE2472CRFW6 is missing an important SNAP point to attach it to the bridge. Let us know if there is anything you find so it can be corrected.

Today an anonymous source sent the following visual with an interesting question. Where does the H-Leg fall when two surfaces are joined?
In this crossrail application, you will note the new December automation has support legs placed in plan view instead of elevation. This is where you want to be mindful of node placement. If the item is not correctly snapped in plan view, you will have to align and re-bind.
Do you need to see a video for support? Post on what subjects matter most and we can get them in production.
Xsite Adjustable Edge-Support Brackets
Xsite has a flexible option for supporting surfaces above standard height. This bracket, 36WBSA7 can be found on page 458 of the Kimball Office Systems price list. This bracket offers 7″ of adjustment at worksurface height. At the 2-High position you can go from 28″-35″ and it is available in standard finishes. This bracket is not part of the automated routine for Xsite brackets. The find/ replace command (or the block replace command) will do quite nicely.
Priority Height Adjustable Tables
When specifying height-adjustable tables in Priority there is a bit of detail required in understanding how to select a mechanism and switch/control box. The specification must follow application.
- Select single or dual stage electrical adjust?
- Are you selecting for a main or return surface? Is it programmable or non-programmable?
NOTE: Control boxes are not interchangeable.
Piping Option for Pillows
Are you looking for a pop of color? Perhaps an accent to seating needing to be refreshed? The introduction of pillows in the Kimball Office Seating product catalog is the exact place to look for a variety of shapes and sizes. Be aware that the option for contrasting piping will not display at this time. It is anticipated that it will be available within eTools (CAP & KITS) in March.
Revised Xsede Price List
As a reminder… the Xsede price list was revised on December 1st. The price list is available for download or you can order a fresh copy. Do not forget to review the new Xsede automation within this blog as a download.
Currently the tufts available in Boyd are not displaying within all specification tools like CAP and KITS. A post will update this issue when corrected.
* Note a correction was made to the Priority height-adjust table application. When you select the return, a jumper cord will ship.
Adam Blosser, resident talent at Kimball Office discovered an issue regarding the autogenetration of the Xsede vertical support rail has for 50″ structure.
The simple answer to his question is yes. This correction will be made in the January update in CAP.
Xsede Elevation Routine Change
You may have noticed that in the month of December we have changed the automation routine for Xsede in CAP. Supports are now placed in plan view and appears in elevation. Please share your thoughts in application.
As promised in the November 2014 communication web conferences last month, the new Xsede price list has been posted on kimballoffice.com. When reviewing the new price list, you will notice a separation between Accessory Rail and Crossrail Applications. In short, table and tile. Let that be the last reference on this short-lived comparison. You will notice in the November 2014 eTool (CAP) update that the catalog content has been revised to reflect the new price list format. The CAP elevation automation change is still anticipated to follow in two weeks.
Specification training in New York and Chicago will reflect the changes to the price list. A revised recording for the Xsede Specification Training web conference will be posted soon. A recorded CAP eTool web conference on automation will also follow. What are the details you expect changes on?
– Name changes on Crossrail and Extended tile applications. This will not be totally transparent in eTools until January. Consider it a work in progress. Most changes have been made, there may be a few stragglers on descriptions.
– Electrical planning pages for jumpers have been reduced to one page from 8
– Worksurface bracket pages have more visuals for application in planning
– Product has been reorganized based on your feedback to ease specification
What can you expect to be the same? Model numbers and pricing. This simple summary does not convey the visual images and additional planning pages that were added. Check out the new price list for yourself. And if you have time for feedback on these revisions, send me an email. It would be great to get your continued feedback.
