    Hello Tom,

     

    Front Panel Designer's standard engraving objects are lines, rectangles, and circles. More complex shapes, or even logos, can be imported with "hpgl" engraving objects.

     

    Check out our tutorial

    How to Insert Non-Text Engravings with the HPGL Engraving Tool

     

    All you need to do is design the arc, spline, triangle, etc. in a graphic program and export it as a plt file. Once you have done that, follow the steps outlined in the tutorial for the import into Front Panel Designer.

     

    Best regards,

    Diane

    Hi Tom,

     

    Maybe an unit conversion problem from inch to mm? 0.39mm is tiny and wouldn't show.

     

    Try this one usb.fpd

     

    Best regards,
