  • Sorry Please Disregard This Message

    I am new to this and was going to ask how to revise an existing design to remove holes. After posting, I figured it out. So I am deleting my question, but apparently the post can't be removed. Sorry.

  • DXF export

    Why is the DXF exported file in inches when it was drawn in millimeters?


    A Panel I laid out is 80mmx107mm, when exported to DXF it is 80in x 107in

    Still getting my feet wet with this software..


    I need to mount a number of switches on a panel.

    The heads of the switches are much larger than the cutouts.

    It would be very easy for me to make a mistake and place them too close together.


    Is there a way to show an outline that would represent the max dims of the switch head and not have that actually be a part of the panel itself? Something like a "comment" layer?

  • Sloped enclosure?

    Can you fabricate a sloped enclosure, similar to the Hammond 1456 series? Imagine something maybe 8" wide, perhaps 1.5" at the front (toward the user) and a 10- or 15-degree slope up so the back is higher? I would like the top and back to be at a right angle, making the angle between the bottom and the back 80 or 75 degrees depending on slope. The Hammond boxes have the bottom-to-back angle at 90 degrees.


    The idea is to mount a PCB from the top (sloped) panel with connectors coming out the back. Using the Hammond box with the 80-degree angle between the top and back means that I need one PCB for user interface (on the top) and a second to support the connectors through the back.
