Remove the feet. If accessible abolish the anxiety of the sofa (online furniture store - melodyhome) to affluence its access through doors. If this is not possible, skip to next step.
Move the sofa through the door. Slide the sofa on its back on the agenda (and furniture dollies) to the aboriginal door. If the anxiety are removed it should almost canyon appropriate through. If not, you may accept to bend it such that anniversary set of anxiety canyon through.
Move the sofa down the stairs. Abolish the furniture dollies, if you accept them. Slide the sofa advanced while captivation down burden on the ancillary extreme from the stairs. The sofa will activate to angle downwards as it is confused forward. Slowly acquiesce the sofa to lay on the stairs. Move the sofa until it is absolutely on the stairs. The being extreme down the stairs will charge to accomplish abiding the agenda does not bolt on the stairs and absolute the being accomplished on the stairs of if to push. The agenda reduces the abrasion amid the sofa and the stairs, appropriately authoritative the stairs an simple obstacle to accord with. If the stairs bend or change direction, as in a flight of stairs, you will charge to angle the sofa up on one of its ends (the arms). Again airing it, that is to say move it as admitting it were walking by sliding one ancillary again the other, to the next flight of stairs such that the agenda is adverse the ancillary of the stairs. Slowing lay the sofa down on the stairs. One being will charge to adviser the sofa down while ensuring that it does not blooper while the added being will charge to use their easily over their arch to affluence the sofa back down on the stairway slope. Repeat this footfall until the sofa is absolutely down the stairs.
Continue sliding the sofa. Slide the sofa, or alter the furniture dollies and roll, to its adapted location.
It is actual accessible to accept a brace of furniture dollies, if possible. They about alone amount $15.00 and are actual advantageous for added projects.
You can use straps with the winching adequacy to band the couch to the cardboard. This makes abiding that annihilation block loose.
You will charge at atomic two humans to accomplish this blazon of move. Otherwise you accident abrasion to yourself.
Back braces are also recommended to anticipate austere back injury.

Is there a case where I can just remove the top only? I don't want to removed any side profiles of front panels or corner brackets.

Maybe define the "Side Panel" as the top? and use the Housing Profile 2.

Great software! Thanks You!
I work with MacOSX
Your Insert free contour is a great feature , but I have problems getting dxf files from my other cad programs on MacOsx.
You support export of SVG and dxf so its great to connect to additional programs.
Could it be possible for You to add the ability to import "svg" files as well at the contour part not only dxf. This might be much easier than support eps files for Mac.
That would help me a lot to make more Macro Parts much faster with other Cad Programs. I use "TouchDraw" now.
Thank You again!

Thank you for your feedback. I am glad Front Panel Designer works well for you.
I forwarded your suggestion to our IT department. Thank you again for taking the time and helping us making Front Panel Designer better.

It would be great if I could export a STL file for 3D printing. I prefer to test my panels before ordering.

Thank you for your suggestion. 3D printing is definitely a very nice method for testing.
Most users of Front Panel Designer only need a 2D print to check the panel size and cutouts. However, a 3D import would be a nice feature, which would also allow a 3D export. Let me discuss this with our IT people.
Thank you again for your feedback.

I would also appreciate this very much.
Being able to export 3D files would allow us to virtually test the fit of your boxes into much larger systems. Currently we take the 2D files and manually create rough approximations in our 3D CAD software (Solidworks). An easy way to export exact 3D models would make the solutions you offer much more attractive for our applications.

I too use Solidworks and would like this ability. But for now I do it the other way- build in Solidworks, create a dimensioned drawing, then rebuild in Front Panel.
This has given me another thing I'd like from your product. A Drawing. Documentation is vital, and so far I haven't found another way.

Would it be possible to add a feature where I can import a file in some format (for example, comma-separated value table) that contains X,Y coordinates for holes? Many panels I design require fairly a large number of holes and the possibility of making a mistake goes up when manually entering them.
Ideally, I'd like to see the ability to read in a CSV table that has X,Y locations and hole attributes (diameter, threaded, countersunk) and the software will add these holes to the current design.

Let me discuss this with our software developers.
However, have you tried the dxf import? Front Panel Designer offers two different dxf file imports. One for the shape of the panel (outer perimeter) and the other for objects placed on the panel.
The outer shape can be defined in the object properties of the front panel when you start a new project. The other is called "free contour" and can be found in the toolbar.
You can import complex hole patterns with "free contour" very easily.
I hope this helps in the meantime or might be even a better way to import your design in Front Panel Designer.
