  • Ruller

    A dimension tool to measure between 2 points would be nice.

    I'm tired of counting the grid dots :wink:

  • Construction Lines

    Construction lines would be a big help. These are lines that extend both direction as far as cyber-space allows and can be set to any angle. These can really help line things up or when using complex shapes. These lines don't need to be removed before sending the final - they are simply ignored. They should be of an off color, or settable by the user so they are not confused with other lines and are usually dotted.

  • Attribute Layer

    Add a Attribute layer. ON this layer we can make all the same shapes and text as normal but it is not part of the production part. The info doesn't need to be sent with the file. This way I can mark gauge and meter face outlines to represent the overhang and space the actual meter will take up. I can also leave design notes and not worry about removing them before sending the panel.

  • Slot with rounded end

    I need to produce a slot that is open at the edge of a panel, has a specific length and ends in a rounded end with a radius the same as twice the width of the slot. It's as if the slot was cut using an endmill with the same diameter as the width of the slot. Is a hole on top of the end of the slot the best solution?

  • Hole diameter text toggle.

    I'd like to be able to read the diameter next to each hole, and toggle the view of diameter text on/off.

    It would improve accuracy if there was a "View" toggle switch that would allow us to read the diameter of each hole in text displayed adjacent. Great for making sure that all of the holes are what we thought they were.


    Under "View:" there exists (V4.11) an

    "Outline mode" and a "Show refrence points" display function. This is where you would add the "Show dimensions" display layer toggle switch.


    Perhaps (for now) to make this an easier to write software feature you'd only display the dimensions of thru-holes - because that is what we usually have the most inserted of, and most need of seeing.

    Display text of every X,Y, and Z dimensions can come later. 8*D


    I'd be VERY nice to have the diameter text show up in the print-outs for checking and approval too.


    Thank you very much,

  • Option to break sharp edges

    It would be a nice feature to add the option for breaking sharp edges on panels.

    Some of the enclosures I have built, have caused some nasty cuts due to the razor sharp edges of the panels.


    This option could be added under the material selection.

    Currently the only way to do this is by verbal request.
