  • "Mill afterwards" on powder coated panel

    When creating an in-filled text engraving on a powder coated panel, Front Panel Designer allows you the option to "Mill afterwards". This isn't an option on anodized panels because the anodizing is done first, but I'm curious about how it affects the result on a powder coated panel. Even if the difference is subtle, why would I choose one over the other?

     

    It may not matter, but in my particular case I'm planning to use text with white in-fill on a black panel.

  • Aircraft Instrument Panel

    I am attempting to create an instrument panel and would like to know the best way to create both a 3 1/8 and 2 1/4 instrument hole with the 4 screw holes in the proper locations. I don't see a macro shape or any example templates to use.

  • Pop-up origin description

    When initially using the Front Panel Designer work station, I had a problem understanding the exact purpose of the 3rd icon on the pop-out origin selection bar. The pop-up description for that icon states "Enter coordinates based on the reference point of a object". I did not and still don't understand that language. I would instead use "Enter coordinates to be in common with the reference point of an object". Basically, the coordinates of the new object to be the same as the coordinates of the selected existing object.

  • Serial Labeling

    I have an order of 10 Identical panels that will each be labeled "panel 1", "Panel 2", "Panel 3" ect. Can I order the panels such that I only have to submit 1 design file and request that each panel be labeled 1 thru 10? Or is it best to submit 10 different design files? If they can be labeled serially, what is the best way to request this (design note, email ect.)?

     

    Thanks;

    Andrew
