  • Sorry Please Disregard This Message

    I am new to this and was going to ask how to revise an existing design to remove holes. After posting, I figured it out. So I am deleting my question, but apparently the post can't be removed. Sorry.

  • DXF export

    Why is the DXF exported file in inches when it was drawn in millimeters?


    A Panel I laid out is 80mmx107mm, when exported to DXF it is 80in x 107in

  • STL file export

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

  • PEM Fasteners



    I am working on a design in FPD, and I would like to use PEM self-clinching fasteners. I noticed this was mentioned in one of your newsletters a couple of years ago.


    Do you have the capability to install captive panel screws and studs? If so, does the customer need to provide the fasteners, or can you order it for us?


    Thank you.

    Still getting my feet wet with this software..


    I need to mount a number of switches on a panel.

    The heads of the switches are much larger than the cutouts.

    It would be very easy for me to make a mistake and place them too close together.


    Is there a way to show an outline that would represent the max dims of the switch head and not have that actually be a part of the panel itself? Something like a "comment" layer?
