  • Trouble importing dxf files

    Hello,

    I have been trying for 3 days to import dxf files defining 2 panels. Each file appears to have different, yet related, errors preventing the upload from completing, and no amount of editing changes the errors. Please help.

  • Importing DXF Holes

    I would like to use FPD for it's font support but I cannot figure out how to import my dwg. Yes, I can import the DXF as a free contour but the holes become contours. I'm not bothered that much by the difference in price but I am concerned that milling vs drilling will not produce the best possible part quality. Is there a way to convert .dwg or .dxf to .fpd so that circle entities become holes. Minus text engravings and the 4 oblong 1U mounting holes, my project is just 40+ holes ranging from 3mm to 3/8" so I think it should be drilled.

     

    Pls advise,

     

    Mike

  • Panel for Pelican 1400 case

    I need a panel for a Pelican 1400 case with a Pelican panel ring installed.

    I assume this has been done many times, but a forum search on Pelican 1400 got not hits

     

    Does anybody have the front panel outline with 10 ea 6-32 holes for fasteners

    That they can share?

     

    I also need library items for Neutrik panel mount jacks, BNC connectors, USB B panel mount jack, and switchcraft power jack.

     

    Thanks

    Gary Nelson

  • Thru holes

    When I enetr a thru hole, regardless of size, the depth dialog sub-box is grayed out with a 1.27 depth dimension. So while the pictorial cleary shows that I am creating a thru hole, this does leave me with a bit of angst. Especially as I am a new user. Would perhaps be nice, for clarity and completesness, if the "insert drill hole" clearly specified "thru hole" per selection.
