  • Small bug in Windows FPD

    (Note: FPD Version 4.11)

     

    The minor bug is that the filenames extension does not change to SVG, (from DXF) when naming a file to be exported.

    Found under: File> Export> "Save as type" SVG.

    It writes the file with *.dxf extension either way.

    Saving an "SVG files (*.svg)" can overwrite an existing *.DXF file (after warning) since the extension does not change.

     

    Thank you very much!

  • Cavity

    If I create a circle cavity, what color will it be in the middle?? Can I specify a color to fill the cavity??

  • Cavity Example

    Hello,

    I'm entirely new to FPE and had a tiny question. Could you please give me an example of a cavity?A pic would be nice.

     

    I have an LCD(50*40)mm which I need to put in a FP. The only way to hold the LCD in place is to create a cavity on the reverse side of the FP. This allows it to stay in place. I still have to support it from the reverse side, but I can take care of that.

     

    Will a cavity do such a thing?

  • Can you tap heatsinks?

    I have some extruded heatsinks, to which I would like to screw-mount some transistors. Is your equipment capable of tapping one of these?

  • Registration marks on customer supplied panel

    For a customer supplied panel, what is the preferred method of including some sort of registration mark on the designed panel to aid in checking the layout?

     

    For example, I have a panel that already has screw holes. I'd like to include these in the panel layout so that when the page is printed I can use that to align the printout with the panel to make sure things are lining up. But this is not a set of holes to be drilled when the panel is fab'd by you.

  • Resizing panel after designed

    I have a panel layout that I have finished. but realized it is not the correct size. I want to keep the designed exactly as it is on the panel. just extend each side slightly. every time i re size the panel it just adds the added length to one side of the panel. is there a way to center justify it keeping the layout centered??
