  • Machine Opposing Edges

    Not sure how to set this up... I have inserted a rectangular hole. On one side of the rectangle I need to machine a bevel on the front edge, then on the opposing side of the rectangle I need to machine a bevel on the rear edge. Basically - i am trying to create angled slots for ventilation that help to hide the internals (similar to an air register in the home). Any suggestions on this?

  • Printing for panel fit check

    Prior to upgrading to 6.1.2 I was able to print a copy of the panel I was designing.

    I'm on 6.1.2 and using a project from an older version and now when I try to print the panel I'll get only a blank sheet of paper. I looked around at the settings and it appears that the panel preview is present but it appears as one tile of many that need to be printed.

    Can you help figure this out?

  • 6.1.1 on Mac Mojave

    I've updated to the latest version (6.1.1) of FPD and while I can design a panel with no issues, I continue to get this error message:

    "ALERT: this price calculation is no longer valid. Please download the current version of Front Panel Designer".

    I've reinstalled version 6.1.1 three times now with the same results. When I click on the "About" menu, it tells me I'm running version 6.11.

    What's up here?

  • HPGL

    I have a simple line drawing that I might want to include as an engraving on a front panel I'm working on. I have jpg and pdf files, but can't seem to find a free program to convert either of the files to HPGL. If anybody knows of one, I'd be grateful.

    Another idea: I read a post here that leads me to believer FP Express will do the conversion and include it in the design, but I'd like to be able to see it on the cad program so I could mess around with it before deciding if, and how, to include it in the design.

  • FPD files win/mac


    I have a Win machine in my office and a Mac at home, both have version 6.01 installed, but I can't open the files saved under Win on my Mac, it says, I need a newer version.
    Any ideas?
