  • Hole table import

    Would it be possible to add a feature where I can import a file in some format (for example, comma-separated value table) that contains X,Y coordinates for holes? Many panels I design require fairly a large number of holes and the possibility of making a mistake goes up when manually entering them.


    Ideally, I'd like to see the ability to read in a CSV table that has X,Y locations and hole attributes (diameter, threaded, countersunk) and the software will add these holes to the current design.

    Does anyone have a cutout template for a D-SUB 9 connector. I tried using the rectangular cutout, adding 10-degree corners but it is clearly not correct. Thanks.

  • 19" Rack Panel System Holes

    I am designing a 6RU 19" rack panel. When I add the system holes, four holes appear in the four corners of the panel but I need to add more standard size rack holes on each side. Generally, a 6RU rack panel has four holes on each side and not just two. Ideas on how to add these?

  • Quality of panel back side finish

    I just recently received an order for an enclosure using the housing profiles. Everything appeared to be excellent until I flip the panels over and noticed everything from scratches to rub marks. In most cases this turned out not to be a problem. However on an inner enclosed area to save money, I did the cavities on the front side, thinking I could simply flip them over when I assembled it. Well luckily I had opted to use counter sunk screws on the outer main panels, so this required that I did the cavities on the reverse side, thus saving the day.


    Anyway I've had panels made before and never noticed such poor quality on the back side, nor have I seen anything mentioned about it in the FAQs or on this forum. Has something changed, or did I just get something that slipped through QC? As it turned out since this is only an issue with the flipped inner panels, it won't be apparent when the enclosure is fully assembled. But then again this was a very expensive project at nearly $1,400 and it caught me by surprise.


    So I guess my bottom line question is: Are there no guarantees on the finish quality for the panel back side, and/or is there an option to specify that both sides of the panel should have a high quality finish?

  • Spacing Between Cutouts

    Is there a recommended minimum spacing to use between rectangular/circular cut outs?


    I have a few rectangle cutouts to place next to each other and want to make sure I'm not putting them to close together to avoid any problems during/after cutting.
