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


    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 :)

    Hello Douglas,


    Unfortunately, setting the place where the thread starts is not possible.


    I would suggest that you just pick a drilled hole for the panel and use a nut to tighten the socket. In this way, you can assure that is has the right angle.


    Best Regards,
