  • Seahorse SE520 Template

    Does anyone have a template for the Seahorse SE520 case? Searching hasn't turned up anything. It has a slight curve to the sides that I can't seem to replicate myself. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Filled engravings crossing holes

    I am planning to place an engraved rectangular outline with rounded corners to surround a group of elements on a panel. This engraved line intersects the drill holes for the screws that mount the side profiles.

     

    Is there any problem with infilling an engraving that intersects a hole or countersink?

     

    If there are production problems that do not allow a filled engraving intersecting a hole, is there a minimum distance required between the engraved line and the machined area of the countersink or hole? And, if so, is there a way to build an engraved "rectangle" out of individual engraved line segments (that stop short of the hole) but can still emulate the "rounded corner" available in the rectangle engraving object?

     

    Also, if there is a problem with infilling of engravings that intersect a machined element, please confirm that there is no problem if these engravings are not filled (i.e. "no in-fill color").

  • Blind side holes and tapping

    Is it possible for you to drill holes into a cut edge? For example, if I wanted some holes drilled into the edge of a panel, could you do that?

     

    It would be really useful for assembly.... Particularly if you could tap them as well.

     

    Thx.

     

    Chris.

  • Small bug in Windows FPD

    (Note: FPD Version 4.11)

     

    The minor bug is that the filenames extension does not change to SVG, (from DXF) when naming a file to be exported.

    Found under: File> Export> "Save as type" SVG.

    It writes the file with *.dxf extension either way.

    Saving an "SVG files (*.svg)" can overwrite an existing *.DXF file (after warning) since the extension does not change.

     

    Thank you very much!
