    I am trying to generate a macro or set of macros for TYCO CPC connectors. I do not see a clear description of how you go about doing this.

  • Studs and Standoffs

    I can only find M3 Studs or Stand-offs in the Drop down.


    Is a M2 Standoff available


    The 4.20 software release notes talks about other standoffs coming in June 2013 . . . since it is the end of June are they coming soon ?

  • Trouble importing dxf files


    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,

  • 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.
