  • Pelican case panels

    Would any kind soul out there have something I could use as a template for an 1150 or 1400 case panel template?

     

    I'm not a mechanical guy, and I would prefer to take as much uncertanity out of this as possible. Thanks! :D

  • Engraving Tool Size Question

    My panel is 160mm by 430 mm.

    It will be a few scale( size about 40-50 mm) placed over there.

    I confuse what tool size to choose for a proper in-fill color placement.

    Could you advice from your experience?

    I would prefer to see some photos or pictures how it looks like with different tool size.

    Thanks

  • First Time User Help

    Hello!

     

    I am working on a large audio project. I needed to replicate some Boss Guitar Effects Pedal enclosure holes onto a flat piece of metal. I need 3 in total. I am new to using FrontPanel so I was just wondering if someone can review my design.

     

    I did it on a single sheet of metal to save money. Can I have them cut it into 3 pieces or should I do it myself? Here is a picture of what I am trying to replicate, very basic!

     

    Pedal:

     

     

    I just need that rectangle cutout-with the small cut up top for the LED.

     

    And here is a screenshot of what I created:

     

     

     

     

    Any problems with the way the cuts overlap, or any other suggestions?

     

    Thanks!!!!

  • Vector support?

    Hello.

     

    Why can't a user cannot generate a design in a vector program, such as Illustrator or Corel Draw for the cuts and import to Front Panel Designer? Some of us have fully-designed setups already in vector, so this would save a lot of time versus having to needlessly redraw them in your software.

  • Bulged Rectangle

    Hi, just wanted to introduce myself and a problem that has me stuck. I'm Jeff and having a heck of a time trying to figure out how to make a bulged rectangle for the shape of my panel. The panel will fit in A Seahorse 520 case which has radiused sides and corners and is not a perfect rectangle. I've tried to used the curved slot tool to shape the rectangle but it's giving me fits and I just can't seem to get it right. I'm computer savy but not Cad savy so there is a bit of a learing curve. If I can get the basic panel shape down adding the rest of the data shouldn't be an issue. Below is a picture of the panel with dimensions and I am hoping that someone can help me figure out how to successfully draw the basic panel shape or give me some advice on what I need to do. I would be nice if there were a template for cases like these or if we could import a DXF file (I have this drawn in Autocad). ANy help would be appreciated:
