  • saving own macro

    I just created my own macro folder.

    I go to the object, in this case a hole, right click on it and then click on create macro.

    The new window opens, I go to select my new macro folder, hit return and nothing happens. No matter what I try, it will not allow me to select my macro folder.

    I am using a MAC with the latest OS.

  • 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?

  • housing profile drawing files

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


    If so, is there a link to download?
