  • Macro Object or Library Object?

    Greetings FPE Forum!

     

    I have a requirement for a cutout for a Deltron DIN connector which has a .629" dia. round hole with a 0.125"x0.048" (0.025 corner rad.) rectangular cutout at the 12 o'clock position. Is this something that I could piece together by using a circle and rectangle object on top of each other or is this something that would require a library object?

     

    Cheers,

    Raph

     

    This is the part btw:

  • HPGL/2 support?

    I'm working in Autocad and wanted to import an Autocad file to FPD, will exporting the Autocad file via HPGL/2 work, or does it only work with HPGL?

     

    Is there an easier way to get things from Autocad to FPD? Will .plt files import?

     

    Thanks,

    Jeff

  • hpgl engraving with cutter tool

    When importing an HPGL file, the tool can be set to engraving or cutter.

     

    If set to cutter, does that mean it cuts completely thru?

     

    This is what I would expect, but there is an in-fill color option for the cutter tool that confuses me a bit.

  • Object properties shows millimeters and inches

    In the version 3.5 software, why does the "Object Properties" dialog display X and Y in inches even when the rest of the units (such as height and width) are shown in millimeters? this makes designing a lot more work than it needs to be as I have to constantly convert units back and forth using a calculator.

     

    Thanks,

  • User settings not stored by software?

    Is the ability to choose millimeters or inches as the standard measuring unit working in the version 3.5 software? Every time I go into Edit->Settings, I choose "millimeter" from the "Grid Distance X" dropdown box, click "Set as Default" and then hit "OK". When I open the settings dialog again, everything is back to inches. I looked in the registry for where the program would store these settings, but only found entries for the positions of the various dialogs and windows. Are these settings actually being stored somewhere?

     

    Thanks,

  • Can I set the point where a threaded thru-hole starts being threaded ?

    Hello,

    I would like to know if it's possible within fpd to set the place at which the threading in a threaded thru-hole begins.

     

    As you can see the reason for this is that with standard thread orientation my XLR socket when fully screwed in is 125 degrees out of alignment. I am using a Vista OS so don't have access to the front panel designer help files.

     

    any help appreciated :)
