3 Reasons Why Front Panel Designer is Essential for Students

bb

Companies, university courses, and hobbyists use and love Front Panel Designer for many reasons, but in stark contrast to costly and complex CAD programs, Front Panel Designer is one of the best tools a fledgling mechanical engineer can utilize in order to further their knowledge and bring their creations come to life. Here's why:

1. It's Free 

Furthering your education is expensive enough on its own. While many institutions offer discounts to their students on required software, nothing can compete with free. Much like Gimp as a free alternative to Photoshop, Front Panel Express is a rock-solid computer-aided design platform that allows you to conceptualize your front panel and enclosure design within the same ecosystem as the ordering and cost estimation system. This streamlines the ordering process and allows you to make changes on the fly to accommodate your budget.

2. It's Easy

With an intuitive design and comprehensive support resources, learning and using Front Panel Designer is simple - especially compared to high-priced CAD programs that require extensive training and background knowledge to fully utilize the platforms. Front Panel Designer is easy enough for first-time designers and fully-featured enough to satisfy experienced veterans. 

3. It's Comprehensive

Front Panel Express is a powerful piece of software, providing built-in templates, custom designs, and ordering processes all in one platform. While the interface is designed to be easy-to-use, the results we've seen from our customers are extraordinary. Front Panel Designer provides precise milling and sizing options, color and branding capabilities, and multiple materials and finishes built into the platform itself.
