  • Vector support?

    Hello.

     

    Why can't a user cannot generate a design in a vector program, such as Illustrator or Corel Draw for the cuts and import to Front Panel Designer? Some of us have fully-designed setups already in vector, so this would save a lot of time versus having to needlessly redraw them in your software.

  • Bulged Rectangle

    Hi, just wanted to introduce myself and a problem that has me stuck. I'm Jeff and having a heck of a time trying to figure out how to make a bulged rectangle for the shape of my panel. The panel will fit in A Seahorse 520 case which has radiused sides and corners and is not a perfect rectangle. I've tried to used the curved slot tool to shape the rectangle but it's giving me fits and I just can't seem to get it right. I'm computer savy but not Cad savy so there is a bit of a learing curve. If I can get the basic panel shape down adding the rest of the data shouldn't be an issue. Below is a picture of the panel with dimensions and I am hoping that someone can help me figure out how to successfully draw the basic panel shape or give me some advice on what I need to do. I would be nice if there were a template for cases like these or if we could import a DXF file (I have this drawn in Autocad). ANy help would be appreciated:

  • Using other fonts

    I would like to use fonts such as 'Times New Roman', and 'Vivaldi' on the panel.

    Is there any easy way to do this?

    I can convert the text to a path or shape via photoshop, but I do not have any software that supports HPGL formats.

  • Specifying smallest possible corner radius for rectangular hole

    If I want to specify a rectangular through hole, approximately 12mm tall and wide, with the smallest possible corner radius (i.e. as nearly a true rectangle as possible), do I specify the 1.0mm Cutter tool and a radius of 0.5mm?

     

    Thanks.

  • macro question and line art.

    Is there a way to ungroup a macro object? The equliv. of 'explode' in autocad?

     

    Also, where can I find step by step information on how to build lines around a hole for a stepped attenuator?
