  • Custom cavity


    I'd like to create a cavity with an arbitrary shape. I see that you can create circles, rectangles, circles-in-rectangles, etc. I'd like to import a dxf and use that as the cavity. This obvious feature appears missing from the software.

    I searched on the forum and found one Customer Service Rep who said it can be done, here:

    ...but there are no details about how to import dxf and "specify it should be a cavity". Do we import dxf as a cutout and then specify in the notes section when we order that that should be a cavity instead of a cutout? If so, how do we tell the human operator which cutout we are talking about (if there are several)?

  • simple non rectangular front panel

    I would like to create a slightly non rectangular front panel shape. I've been looking into hand editing a .DXF, but haven't found any easy to follow examples. Could someone help me or suggest another way ?

  • Use DWG or DXF file for cutout pattern?

    Can someone help me figure out how to convert one of the attached DWG or DXF files into a cutout pattern for front panel designer?

    I need to make a cutout that covers up all the LEDs around the b***ons.

    The DWG file is located on this web page

  • Postage to Australia

    Hi, sorry if its my bad, but I can't seem to find any info on postage / shipping?

    Anyway, do you guys post to Australia (Sydney)?

    And if so, could you give me a ballpark figure on how much that might cost?

  • Printing on Perspex

    Can you UV print on Perspex? Is it durable enough to handle regular finger touch action over a long period, or would it need to be printed in reverse on the back side? Can Perspex be printed on both sides? Is the printing cost affected by number of colors?

  • Cleaning Digitally Printed Front Panel


    We just received our front panel in the mail and the quality of the machining and digital printing is absolutely perfect. We're in the process of developing general cleaning instructions for our system and we are wondering if it is ok to quickly wipe the anodized/printed aluminum surface clean with a 70% Isopropyl Alcohol solution? I believe the anodizing would be fine, so I am more concerned about whether or not the printing could hold up to the alcohol. If not, can you please provide other cleaning suggestions?

    Thank you,

    Jim Neumann
