  • HPGL

    I have a simple line drawing that I might want to include as an engraving on a front panel I'm working on. I have jpg and pdf files, but can't seem to find a free program to convert either of the files to HPGL. If anybody knows of one, I'd be grateful.

    Another idea: I read a post here that leads me to believer FP Express will do the conversion and include it in the design, but I'd like to be able to see it on the cad program so I could mess around with it before deciding if, and how, to include it in the design.

  • FPD files win/mac

    Hi,

    I have a Win machine in my office and a Mac at home, both have version 6.01 installed, but I can't open the files saved under Win on my Mac, it says, I need a newer version.
    Any ideas?

    Hi

    I downloaded the Front Panel Designer but does anyone know where I can download and read the tutorial before I can use it?

  • User-Provided Material

    Why does FPD reject 10mm anodized material provided by the user? FPD issues an error message with the combination of 10mm panel and color black is selected. The message says that 4mm is the maximum panel thickness for anodized black. I'd understand if FPE did not have 10mm anodized black stock, but I am supplying the material.

  • 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:
