  • Rectangle in Rectangle Cavity

    I am designing for material that I plan to supply. The material is ~1.8mm thick and is powder coated. In the Designer Software I have selected 2.00mm thick since it gives an error when I select 1.5mm thick.

     

    I want to make a rectangular hole with a cavity surrounding it with a material thickness of 1.5mm. I assume the "Rectangle in Rectangle" option is the one I want to choose. However, I don't know which depth to specify. Should I select a depth of 0.5mm since I selected the 2.00mm material in the properties? or should I select a depth of 0.3mm since the actual material is 1.8mm?

  • 2-Way Radio Mounting Options

    I looked at the enclosure manual; but I'm still not 100% sure what I need to do to make this work.

     

    See the attached image.

     

    What I'm trying to do.. is make a face plate with a rectangle cutout that a CB radio will slide into. The radio has two holes/screws.. one on each side, midway down to secure it to the mounting bracket. Basically I need to make a piece that will attach at a 90 degree angle at the edge of the rectangle cutout on each side of where the radio will mount, to give me a place to put the screw (again, see image attached).

     

    What all do I need to do in the front panel designer to make this work? Just put a blind hole near the cutout? What about hardware, and the actual bracket? Assume it would need to be a bent,or welded L type bracket with a hole to mount?

    Hi all

     

    Does anyone have any experience with a dxf Adobe illustrator import ?

     

    I can't import a Front Panel export's dxf file ! in Adobe Illustrator.

     

    I just would want to make the engraved text with Adobe.

     

    Thanks for your help.

  • Negative depth cavity?

    Hello to everyone,

     

    I am new to the front panel express 4.11.

     

    I need to design at the back of my panel an area that protrudes out from the surface. CAn this be done by specifying a negative depth for a rectangular cavity? Appreciate if you can advise if this is the right way to indicate or is there a technique for doing this with the software. Thank you.

  • Problem in Linux

    I am a brand new user. I am trying to try out your software on Ubuntu 10.10. I tried to open a dxf and it causes Front Panel Designer to close. I tried the Windows executable in Wine as well and it caused an unhandled exception and closed. Any known working linux distro that handles dxf imports without crashing? Beyond that...ever thought about making it a web app? Might be easier to maintain in the long run.
