  • Studs and Standoffs

    I can only find M3 Studs or Stand-offs in the Drop down.


    Is a M2 Standoff available


    The 4.20 software release notes talks about other standoffs coming in June 2013 . . . since it is the end of June are they coming soon ?

  • Trouble importing dxf files


    I have been trying for 3 days to import dxf files defining 2 panels. Each file appears to have different, yet related, errors preventing the upload from completing, and no amount of editing changes the errors. Please help.

  • Importing DXF Holes

    I would like to use FPD for it's font support but I cannot figure out how to import my dwg. Yes, I can import the DXF as a free contour but the holes become contours. I'm not bothered that much by the difference in price but I am concerned that milling vs drilling will not produce the best possible part quality. Is there a way to convert .dwg or .dxf to .fpd so that circle entities become holes. Minus text engravings and the 4 oblong 1U mounting holes, my project is just 40+ holes ranging from 3mm to 3/8" so I think it should be drilled.


    Pls advise,

  • Panel for Pelican 1400 case

    I need a panel for a Pelican 1400 case with a Pelican panel ring installed.

    I assume this has been done many times, but a forum search on Pelican 1400 got not hits


    Does anybody have the front panel outline with 10 ea 6-32 holes for fasteners

    That they can share?


    I also need library items for Neutrik panel mount jacks, BNC connectors, USB B panel mount jack, and switchcraft power jack.

  • Engraving on User Panel With 2.5mm Edge?

    Good Day,


    I have a panel (steel) which has a 2.5mm lip on the top and bottom running the length of the panel. Is it possible to do any engraving on this panel, or does the lip keep the tools from correctly reaching the panels? (as in: do I really need to use a flat panel?)


    Many thanks!
