Any chance you will be adding the ability to Laser Image/Engrave an anodized panel vs using an engraving tool and infill? This should be more economical and a lower cost for the customer while stillreatining the excellant machining you provide.

Hello again Jeff,
We do not foresee purchasing a laser engraver any time in the near future.
While the actual purchase price of an engraving machine is less expensive than a mill, the additional time of moving and positioning a piece of material in a second machine would wipe out any possible cost savings. The time taken to engrave text into a given panel is not generally cost prohibitive, and this process is completed without additional handling of the panel.

Laser engraving machine, using a laser engraving technology equipment for carving materials. Laser engraving machine is different from mechanical engraving machine and other traditional way of manual sculpture, mechanical engraving machine is the use of CNC machines, such as high hard just high hardness materials such as diamond to sculpt low hardness of other things. And artful and laser engraving machine is using the heat energy laser on the material to engraving, laser in the laser engraving machine is its core. In general, the use of laser engraving machine, broader and higher precision carving, carving speed is more quickly. And compared with the traditional way of manual sculpture, laser engraving engraving effect can be done very exquisite, no less manual sculpture of the art. It is because the laser engraving machine has so many advantages, so now the application of laser engraving machine has gradually replaced the traditional equipment and methods. Be the main engraving equipment. Is laser cutting/engraving processing technology :badgrin:

Any chance you will be adding the ability for Color Printing (natural aluminum) the Front Panel similar to your competitors?

There are a few layers to this question, so I will try to address them all as clearly as possible.
What we generally see offered by other companies is silk screening. Silk screening requires a fairly hefty investment with each new design, and it is generally only used when quantities are high. Also, silk screening is printed on top of the material, and it can be scraped off quite easily in many cases.
We are in the experimental phase of printing into aluminum (not on top of). This should offer an economical solution to printing a one-off prototype without a giant setup fee. This type of printing would also be less vulnerable to abrasion. Keep an eye out in 2011/2012 for more on this.

It would be helpful after carefully placing macro objects that if they need to be replaced with a different macro object at the same location...maybe something like
(1) right click the object
(2) popup menu > click "replace"
(3) select macro object in sidebar
(4) click "enter"
(1) select macro object in dwg
(2) click a new "Replace" button maybe in macro sidebar
(3) select the macro object in sidebar to replace with
(4) click "Enter"

The best way to accomplish a macro replacement would be with the alignment tool.
You would place your new macro anywhere on the panel, then click on it. Hold the shift key and click on your old macro. Right click on the group and select "Aligning/distribution". You would want to align the reference points on the last selected object, then click OK. Your two macros will now align themselves, and you need only delete the old macro.
I hope this helps!

(1) in the new version where are the macro objects (files) I create stored on my computer by default so I can find them and back them up?
(2) When you upgrade designer software from v4 to v4.01 does it erase the macro objects I previously created on the computer?

The macro objects are in the FrontDesign directory in the folder called "Makros". The software will not erase your macro files. From 3.5 to 4.*, there is a procedure to import your old macros. From 4.0 to 4.1, they should import automatically.
Also, if you use the "View" drop down menu and click "Macro Objects" to bring up the right pane window, you can right click on either folder and click "Import old macro file..." to navigate to your previous macros and bring them into the new software.
