  • Display cover

    Hi,

    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.

  • Difficulty creating HPGL .plt files in Linux

    Does anybody know of software that will let me convert files into HPGL either by importing and saving as HPGL or else straight file conversion? I have several formats I can save to using my design software for my logo, but none of them are .hpgl.

    I've tried Cenon, Inkscape, qCad, and Libreoffice Draw and all of them either don't have HPGL or else don't properly save it in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. I tried a USB install of 15.10, which allowed me to satisfy dependencies for the latest version of Cenon (4.04, I believe), but it still couldn't save a .plt file which was usable (always ends up just being a 32 byte file, with no data).

    If anyone can help me, I would greatly appreciate it. It's possible that the vector data in my other file formats isn't plottable into HPGL format at all or something, but I really need assistance from someone more familiar with these formats and usage.

  • Missing FPD Files

    Hi
    I've managed to loose lots of my fpd files.I usually save them in the frontpanels folder at programfiles/front design but they are missing.It's just the newer files that are missing.I copied the whole front design folder to another hard drive before a format but they haven't copied along with the older files.Have they been saved somewhere else and I've missed saving them?
