  • dxf frustration

    Hi! I have used FPE over the years for my production needs and I have NEVER, never ever; no matter how I export and how I prep the data- never been able to import a dxf exported from illustrator. I am trying to design some from panels for 2 new products and am completely blocked by this. I contacted support and was curtly pointed to the pdf guide, which tells me nothing about file preparation (and that I've read, and then told it would be 100$ an hour for possibly 3 hours of work to get a simple dxf outline into front panel designer.

    Does anyone have a succinct set of operations to perform in order to get a simple curved outline out of illustrator and into FPE using DXF? Paying 300$ per set of outlines will be a bit steep.

    Anyway here's the perpetual error:

  • Front Design launch problem

    hello... I have ordered dozens of panels over a dozen years... and never had this issue...

    I get a pop up that says:

    the current issue of front panel designer is not reacting. please close all dialog boxes and try again.

    the program was running when I had a crash... it spun endlessly, so I had to force quit... now it will not open... I rebooted computer.. I dragged the old program to the trash... downloaded again... and reinstalled... still nothing... I found the Applications Support folder, but could not see any old files to delete...

    I sent an email yesterday. no reply...

    any help appreciated...

  • power connector for FrontDesign

    Is there a macro element I can install for a 110 power cable, like a EAC309X?

  • XLR descriptions preferances

    choosing these xlr's to match was excruciating.
    What about more description in the preferences pain. Once on the layout there is no way to reference what one you chose.right clicking preferences turned up too little descriptor or hole size or anything for reference after the fact, you are left guessing. I ended up printing them all out and then using calipers to try and figure out what is what by numbering them one to 12 on a paper.. love the service but the software is real week in a lot of other areas too.
    And the connector selection is so sparse i'm making most of mine up myself and its been years sins this is the same library of parts never updated.

  • housing bracket threading

    Hi. Do your housing brackets have threading? The manual doesn't say. Thanks!
