  • Shape combining

    I would love to see a feature that would permit combining shapes in a "smart" fashion.

    Grouping cutouts or cavities produces a Union function, where the combined outline is cut away. Currently, this is not done cost-effectively, as there machining charges are the simple sum of the individual shapes, not that of the outline or the total area.

    A different and useful combining function would be an Intersection, where the result would be to cut out only the parts that overlap between shapes. A particular application would be a component outline (or cavity recess) for a circular D-hole connector whose body shape in a square overlaying a circle. We can create a through-hole cutout approximation as a Quadruple D-Hole, but not as a cavity.

    (As a component outline, this would be an ideal shape to be tagged as Non-Cutting!)

  • Object/group rotation

    When rotating a group (or inserted macro object) the rotation factor is kept during the current session, but when the file is saved, closed, and then reopened the rotation factor of that group is reset to 0.0 (ie, the rotation is not saved in the data file). Would it be possible to have the rotation saved as part of the data file, so when the file is reopened the rotation value of objects is preserved?

  • Cases- removable top?

    I just ordered my first panel and will be addicted to your service in the future. However I didn't order any of your cases since it seems both designs do not allow easy removal of the top plane of the case without first removing the front or back. Is this correct? If so, you may want to considering having a case option that one can easily 'remove the top' so as to work on a system without removing the front or back first. When demoing prototype products (what I would use your service for), the extra disassembly makes the device seem clumsy, which is what I am (presumably) paid to avoid.

    Thanks again!

  • HPGL scale resolution

    Hi, would it be possible to add one more digit to the HPGL resolution? Meaning, right now it will only do 48.8% or 75.1% instead of 48.85% or 75.12% etc... The extra resolution seems it would be easy to do and would save me a huge amount of time in fine tuning my engravings.

    My number one wish for Front Panel Designer:

    A precise measuring tool, allowing user to quickly measure distance between object edges and centers.
