  • Indexing switch positions

    Im trying to create a front panel that has a hole in it 41mm in diameter for a switch to protrude through.


    Im having trouble positioning the location dots for the switch which indexes 36 degrees each time.


    Any sugestions on how to deal with it

  • Engraving Check Tool

    What are the parameters that this tool checks (View/Engraving Check), please? I have a logo that shows OK when using the .2mm graver or .6mm cutter, but shows red if the .4mm graver is specified. Is red no-go, or just questionable? Couldn't find any insight in the FPD help files, apologies if I missed that.

  • Text eng. within shape eng.

    Hello! Is there a way to put a no-fill text engraving within a black-filled shape engraving? If so, is there a preferred/best way to go about it?




    Similar to the 'OUT A' in the lower left corner.


    Thanks! -j goulds

  • Painted Acrylic?

    I wish to have a panel done in such a way that I can illuminate the lettering from behind.


    I was thinking that a painted piece of acrylic might work


    Does anyone have experience with this type of thing? what products or process did you use?

    Are there any DXf, DWG, or STEP files available for the housing profiles 1 and 2?


    If so, is there a link to download?

  • panel thickness, material

    I'd like to have a panel that is about 43" long and 12" wide fabricated from .062" (about 1.5 mm)6061 T6 aluminum, powder coated with filled engraved labels. Front Panel Designer won't allow anything thinner than 2.5 mm. Is this possible? Do I need to supply the material?
