  • Importing object positions into FPD

    Hi

     

    I have a custom panel, which contains countersunk drill holes, drawn in a CAD program which can export to DXF.

    I can import the panel outline into FPD ok, using the "Free shape from DXF file" option when creating a new panel.

     

    Is there a way of importing the panels drill hole positions into FPD, to enable the easy postioning of FPD drill hole objects?

     

    Thanks

  • 3rd party fonts

    Is it possible to import 3rd-party fonts into Front Design.

    I am often faced with re-creating a custom or classic typefaces and although your font selection and modification tools are very good for traditional, inudstrial and award fonts, it is difficult or impossible to match more stylized commercial fonts.

    I have tested many Autocad compatible (.shx) fonts in Front Design with limited success (using only single stroke character fonts), but have not attempted to manufacture a panel with them in case there was a compatibility issue.

  • Height and Width not matching on printouts dimensions

    Hello guys,

    first of all thanks for this wonderful product.

    I've bee trying to design my first front panel and I was very impressed with the professional look of the results,but I'm experiencing something I couldn't explain,and I hope you guys could help me out:

    If I print to Acrobat,creating a pdf file of the panel,I end up with a panel that is slightly smaller than the original one created in your software.

    The strange fact is that the difference in dimensions is affecting only the width and the height,but all the other elements,like holes and scales for knobs are printed with the correct dimensions.

    Any idea why this is happening?

    I'm using the version 4.11.

    Maybe I could send my source file to you guys,in order to check if I did something wrong.

     

    Thanks again

    Gio

  • Seahorse SE520 Template

    Does anyone have a template for the Seahorse SE520 case? Searching hasn't turned up anything. It has a slight curve to the sides that I can't seem to replicate myself. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Filled engravings crossing holes

    I am planning to place an engraved rectangular outline with rounded corners to surround a group of elements on a panel. This engraved line intersects the drill holes for the screws that mount the side profiles.

     

    Is there any problem with infilling an engraving that intersects a hole or countersink?

     

    If there are production problems that do not allow a filled engraving intersecting a hole, is there a minimum distance required between the engraved line and the machined area of the countersink or hole? And, if so, is there a way to build an engraved "rectangle" out of individual engraved line segments (that stop short of the hole) but can still emulate the "rounded corner" available in the rectangle engraving object?

     

    Also, if there is a problem with infilling of engravings that intersect a machined element, please confirm that there is no problem if these engravings are not filled (i.e. "no in-fill color").
