  • Copy & Paste Entire Design

    Hello,
    I am hoping to be able to print out multiple copies of an entire panel design on one sheet prior to ordering the final version, to test the fit and make sure I have the right measurements. In the past I have printed out one panel per sheet, but I would like instead to put 4 - 5 panels onto one sheet.

    So far I haven't been able to copy & paste at one time everything from the panel. How can I do this? Thanks

  • engraving/printing

    I had some panels made 5 years ago and the engraving (with white infill) looked coarse and too deep, but shallower and thinner text did not show up as well.

    Can these people make a panel look silk screened? If not these people, who can make me panels about 2" x 5" inches with switch holes and legend beneath them?

  • PCB mounting 0.05" above the plate

    Hi,

    I have a design for a thermal cold plate which has several PCBs mounted 0.05" above the plate. In the previous production the mounting was achieved by having 4-40 threaded blind holes concentric with 4.6 mm circular cavities of 0.73 mm depth. A 2 mm spacer in each cavity defined 1.27 mm mounting height.

    I'd like to change mounting points to 4-40 studs with 5.08 mm depth offsets. That leaves 0.05" protruding part. My question is, what kind of variation can I expect on that height?

  • Maximum Thickness - Customer Supplied Material

    Hello,

    I have clear anodized panels that are approximately 3.5" X 10" and 2.5" X 12". Both sizes are 0.5" thick. Can you A) engrave and infill panels this size and B) cut through-holes in this thickness?

    Regards,
    Jack

  • Printing on customer supplied material

    The 'Insert print graphic' b***on is grayed out if the 'Customer provided material' option is enabled, even if that material is anodized aluminium.
    However, in the UV printing, Source material topic of the Online Help it states:
    "UV printing can in principle be applied to any material. We only guarantee the perfect adhesion of the print on anodized aluminum however. As white is also available as a color, colored panels can also be printed. Under these conditions, it is also possible in principle to carry out UV printing on customer-supplied material."

    Can you print on customer supplied anodized aluminium panels?
