  • 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!

  • How to create rear panel?

    New user here, how do I design a rear panel? I like to have my connector cutouts in the back of a 19" chassis. Do I order my 19" chassis kit as usual, and send in the back panel for fabrication? Or can FPE make standard rear panels such as ones from Techmar, Bud, or Schroff that bolts right on? TIA!

  • STEP File Export

    The 3D add on in version 6.0 is great, but much more useful with the ability to export as a 3D file. Any chance this is coming?

  • Feature Request - Hole Table

    Looks like people have asked for this in the past, but a way to specify holes types and X,Y coordinates would be awesome. I agree you can import holes via the DXF command, but you can't assign threads or countersinks to them. Having to manually specify hole x,y especially with non symmetric parts gets very tedious.
