  • Box with text engraving



    I'm designing an enclosure and was wondering if it is possible to have a rectangle which also includes text in the geometry. Much like this:


    ...with "INPUT" being the "title" of everything included in the box.


    I guess it could be done with separate engraving lines (i.e. 5 lines and a text engraving), but I was wondering if there's an easier way.


    Thanks in advance!


    Kind regards,

  • Combined parts

    I have 2 complimentary L-shaped parts. Is it allowable to submit them as a single "panel" separated by a cut? If so is the correct way of doing this using elongated shapes made with the hole tool?

  • Dxf import Hypex Ncore logo

    I am trying to import the Hypex Ncore logo into FPD as a cavity, but it does noet work. Could it be because they are seperate cutouts in one file???

  • DXF import confusion

    Hello, I have all of my front panel cutouts drawn in a cad program and would like to import them directly in Front Panel Designer 4.14 for MacOS (instead of re-drawing them in FPD), but I'm confused as to which cutting tool to select in the Free Contour Properties window. I would think I should select a cutter tool that is at least as thick as my panel (3.0mm) since I want cutouts and not cavities, but when I do that many of the cutouts disappear. If I select a smaller cutting tool then all of the cutouts show up. Which is correct? Thanks.
