  • !mm Etched and Anodised

    Hi,

     

    I am looking for a 1mm thick panel to cover a plastic enclosure. Front designer rejects this. Can you provide 1mm thick panels ?

     

    Is your natural aluminium finish the common etched and anodised finish ?

     

    I am unfamiliar with the laser engraved legends. They may suit my product but is anodised photo marking and option.

     

    Many thanks,

  • Moving a Front panel once started

    I have a front panel I started and it ends up on pages 14,15,16 when i go to print.(Which is another issue, the FPD print dialog wont let me select which pages I want..http://www.frontpanelexpress.com/typo3conf/ext/chc_forum/pi1/templates/img/emoticons/rolleyes.gif.) But anyway, I could solve this if I could move the whole FP design along the left side of the grid, of course including all my holes and stuff. And up the upper left corner instead of the right side....any ideas?

  • Macro Object

    This may be a stupid question but im trying to make a J1962 macro object. There is a small lip on the top of the connector. I am attempting to create two seperate rectangular cutouts and join them together to create the object. When I do this the two object group, however do not mould into one object. How do I go about joining two cutouts and mould them into one?

  • Bug in Macro Sidebar

    Hi,

     

    When trying to insert a Macro object (K) the reference panel pops up and the cursor goes into cross hair mode, but when you click into the panel, a small error message window pops up which reads:

     

    ----------------

    Front Panel Designer Error

     

    Please select the macro object you want to insert from the macro sidebar.

    ----------------

     

    But there IS NO macro sidebar on the screen!

    The Macro Sidebar cant be toggled on/off either.

    The Macro Sidebar was broken using Version 4.14, and is now still broken using Version 4.31 of Front Panel Designer, MacOS-Intel.

    (Note: The "Messages" and the "Object Properties" screens work perfectly, and I'm using Mac OS X 10.5.8 (9L30))

     

    Please help soon, and

    Thank you very much!

  • "Mill afterwards" on powder coated panel

    When creating an in-filled text engraving on a powder coated panel, Front Panel Designer allows you the option to "Mill afterwards". This isn't an option on anodized panels because the anodizing is done first, but I'm curious about how it affects the result on a powder coated panel. Even if the difference is subtle, why would I choose one over the other?

     

    It may not matter, but in my particular case I'm planning to use text with white in-fill on a black panel.

  • Aircraft Instrument Panel

    I am attempting to create an instrument panel and would like to know the best way to create both a 3 1/8 and 2 1/4 instrument hole with the 4 screw holes in the proper locations. I don't see a macro shape or any example templates to use.
