I'm trying to design an enclosure using "Side Profile 1" but the drawing in the enclosure manual doesn't have enough dimensions to locate the y-axis location of each slot. Is there a more detailed drawing that includes all the dimensions?
At a minimum I think I need the two dimensions "C" and "D" indicated in red in the attached file.
I take an Autocad .dwg file, open it in ABViewer, then save it as an HPGL (.plt) file. When I try to import it as an HPGL engraving, the preview window shows it as a bunch of lines going every which way.
I've used FPD for years on a PC and have now migrated to running FPD v.6.21 on a new MacBook Pro. My latest front panel design has text engraving on the panel. The text includes an apostrophe (the text is "Engineer's Amp"). Curiously, while the text shows properly in the text box, in both the preview window and on the panel FPD converts the apostrophe to a question mark (i.e., "Engineer?s Amp"). The conversion cannot be corrected.
What's going on?
