  • NEMA 5-15R

    I want to build an AC power filter and I was disappointed that FPD did not have an object for the standard NEMA 5-15R duplex receptacle (unless I missed it). Has anyone successfully created it and could send me the object or tell me how I could easily cut and paste this object into FPD?

  • Category Tree is Corrupt

    Hi, I thought I'd leverage the macro folders and add my own folder. When I did that I got an error that the "category tree is corrupt!". It did not add my folder.


    Subsequently, everytime I tried to add a new macro object the error comes up (I'm not even trying to create a new folder at this point). Yes, I did quit and restart the program and the error remains in this file.


    Further, when I tried to rename a macro object, the program crashed completely.


    Don't know if this has been reported, or if files can get corrupted, but I hope not because I've spent a lot of hours on this file. Please advise.

  • macros with changeable drillings

    I am using the "Sub-D 25 pole with changeable drillings" library macro, and wonder how I can change the mounting holes (or even find out what the present hole size/type is).

  • Difference between cavity and blind hole

    I have a question, what is the difference between a circular cavity and a blind hole with a diameter of 1.25"? They seem to do the same but the cavity is much more expensive. When I want a 3mm cavity in a 4mm panel, is there a danger that when using a blind hole it may punch through instead of having a nice flat bottom?

  • printing

    So far I have had no problems with the design process but when

    I try to print my design my printer outputs a blank page. The

    print preview and everything looks right. No error messages or

    anything. Do you have any idea what I am doing wrong? HP computer

    with windows vista 64. HP 4280 printer which works perfectly

    with every other program. Thankfull for any help you can give.

  • curved slot cavity

    Hi there,


    Any way to add a curved slot cavity? Or is this in the works for a future version of fpe?


    I'd also love to be able to do a curved slot in a rectangle cavity.
