Front Panel Designer category
Hello, I would like to place some text around the perimeter of a large (3.5") drilled hole, following the curve of the hole and spaced 1/4" or so away. Is there any way to do that, other than placing individual characters and rotating each one manually? Thanks.

Another option would be to create the design with a vector illustration program such as Corel Draw or Adobe Illustrator. Import the engravings using Front Panel Designer as hpgl file (file extension .plt). A detailed description of how to generate the HPGL's can be found in our Tips & Tricks section on our website.

I was just wondering if you could give me a ballpark estimate for a profile 2 enclosure for a computer with the following dimensions:
17" wide x 18" deep x 6" high
There will be a cutout in the front panel for a DVD drive and the back panel will have cutouts similar to that on the back of a computer.
A rough estimate is all I need before deciding whether to go ahead and design it in FPD.

A rough estimate for an enclosure with those dimensions would be approximately $500.
Please let us know if you have any other questions. We would be happy to assist you with designing the enclosure.

Does anyone have a macro item for a standard IEC panel mount (male) and a DVI female panel mount? Someone must have used them before because they are so common!!

Below is a usable example of the standard IEC panel mount and the DVI female mount.
I also attached the sources from which they were attained

I need a cross over program so I can run Front Panel Express designer or a program that will work like it. Hopefully one that is free.
Can Anyone point me in the right direction for something that would work on my Powerbook G4 running 10.4.11 ? Thanks

Does anyone know if there are library or macro objects available for EDAC connectors, mainly 56 and 90?

Here is a usable example of the 56 and 90 pin connectors

Sorry for the tardy reply, I thought if I checked "watch thread" that I would get an email when a reply was posted. Anyway, thanks for the examples.
I have a question, what are the horizontal cutouts through the middle of each connector? It looks like they may be cutouts for the connector alignment pins if you were to mount them behind the panel, but they won't work that way. Just curious.

The 56 and 90 pin EDAC connector dimensions were followed by a standarded set of dimensions from the EDAC website. Attached is the link for the 56 & 90 pin connector dimensions on page 91.
