What does Cabinet Accuracy mean?
Areas of variation
Blocking - The blocking (support structure for joining cabinet components) was drawn for use with dadoes. This the makes assembly much easier as far as spacing and marking (if the cabinet is to be cut with a CNC).
Support structure for control panel - The control panel (and monitor glass) support structure was modified by design. Primary reason for the modification was the measurements were taken from the cabinet were non-destructive (no cabinets were harmed in the process of tracing the cabinet).
Light box - At the time of tracing, I was also doing a Centipede Cabaret (nearly identical cabinet). One of these cabinets did not have a light box. The same light box design was added to both cabinets. I would expect variations from factory cabinet.

DXF File (CAD File)
The below files are PDF documents of the plans that are printed to scale. These documents can be taken to your local print shop and printed on 36" wide media. The prints can then be applied to the wood and used as a template to cut the side panels of the cabinet. I have only included the side panels and any other panels that may be more difficult to cut.

Drawing Specific Notes:
Area of most confusion on the drawings is the top back.
The main piece is the "U" shaped piece that has the top back label. The area highlighted in red is used to make up the other side of the "box" that fills the gap in the "U". The purpose of this box is to help protect the inside of the cabinet while still allowing for ventilation. The bottom two rectangles are just tabs mounted in the inside of the top back that is used to hold the door in place.
