  • Ruler

    Hi all,
    I'm just starting with FPD, and would like to know if there is a ruler somewhere, so you can measure between two holes or points.
    I saw this post " Posted By: etch11 on Apr 30, 2014 12:25AM " and the replay is that would be add in the next versions, running the latest version can I've miss the ruler, or is not yet implemented?
    Since it's high on demand maybe it could be in the next version?

  • 3D viewing in FrontPanel Designer

    I have just completed my design exported it into DXF but it does not produce a 3D image. I also cannot find a 3D image view in Front Panel Designer.

  • Display cover


    I am designing a v front panel for a product with Front Panel Designer. The panel has a 30mm x 12mm rectangular cutout for a LED display. I found on your web-site that you also offer display covers in clear or red acrylic.

    1. Question:
    How do I design or specify a display cover in Front Panel designer?

    2. Question:
    I want the display cover to be inset into the cutout from behind. The glue edge width on the long sides has a max of 2mm, On the short sides the max width is 4mm. Ideally the material would be 2mm Acrylic, meaning the glue 'ledges' are 0.5mm thick. Can you do that?

    3. Question:
    Ideally I want Icon graphics on the front panel. Engraving is too course of a technology for what I need. When will you be able to offer printing capability? Either screen printing, Inkject printing or UV photoresist type printing should work for me.

  • Scale Generator

    Is there a tutorial for using the Scale Generator on Mac OS 10? I have it installed and open to the dialog box, but that's about as far as I can get.
