  • Blind Hole limit

    I need to attach a hinge to our front panel.

     

    I would prefer to attach the hinge to the back side of the panel using ten #6 tapped holes.

     

    While it would probably be ok to use through holes, I would like to use blind holes to hide the end of the #6 screws.

     

    I am using 4mm black anodized material.

     

    How deep can I make the blind hole without breaking through?

     

    3.9mm ?

     

    Thanks

  • Connector Templates

    I would love to see templates for G-Subminiature connectors (9-, 15-, 25-, 37- and 50-pin), Telco 50 (AKA, CHAMP connectors) and Neutrik chassis connectors.

  • 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

  • Templates

    Templates for commonly used enclosures would be a good thing.

    For example, I'll be needing Pelican 1400 and 1150 panels soon. I'd love to be able to start with a known template, and just add the bits I need. Stormcases, etc would be a very good idea.

  • Recommendation for off-the-shelf 2U and 3U enclosures?

    I would love to use FPD to make custom front and rear panels for otherwise-off-the-shelf rackmount boxes. We currently use the ET series from ConnectTech, but I don't think that will work as-is, because their front sub-panels and their rear panels have bent flanges for attaching to the rest of the box.

     

    I can't send the included panels to FPE because they're steel.

     

    I can't use a FPE-fabricated panel as-is because I don't have the ability to bend the metal afterward.

     

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a 2U and 3U box (19" rackmount) with front and rear panels that can be machined by FPE and used without further processing?

     

    Thanks!

  • AutoCAD/DXF Overlay?

    In the absence of a true AutoCAD/DXF import feature, which would be very complex, would it be possible to add a feature to simply display an AutoCAD/DXF drawing within FPD so that we can "trace" over it?

     

    All of our existing designs are done in AutoCAD, and when we want to reproduce something in FPD there is a lot of manual comparison between the original and the FPD to ensure that everything is the same.

     

    I'm envisioning a "layer" that contains the rendering of the AutoCAD panel that can be quickly toggled on/off with a hotkey. This would make for very fast visual comparison of any differences in the original and the FPD version.

     

    Of course true AutoCAD/DXF import would be even better!
