  • Question about templates

    Should the width of the side panels be the same as the cover panels?

    I ask because in the templates the cover width,(top+bottom) is 85.80mm and the side panel width,(front+back) is 100mm


    Using profile2 for the enclosure templates.


    I need to adjust the top+bottom width to

    So should I adjust the front+back panels width to 70mm?

    Or should it be 84.2mm? to make up the 14.2mm difference?

    Hello Ray,


    Thank you for contacting us regarding out Side Profile extrusions.


    The cover panels should be 14.2mm narrower than the side panels. This is consistent with the dimensions found in the template.


    I would always start by drawing the side panels to the dimensions you need, then reduce the cover panels accordingly.


    Since you would like the top and bottom (cover panels) to be 70mm wide, you are correct in your calculation that you will want the front and back (side panels) to be 84.2mm.


    Designing the first enclosure is always the toughest, let us know if we can be of any additional assistance.
