  • Dxf import Hypex Ncore logo

    I am trying to import the Hypex Ncore logo into FPD as a cavity, but it does noet work. Could it be because they are seperate cutouts in one file???

    I am glad it worked for you.


    My Dutch is very limited so I couldn't understand the post you linked to.


    Please use the Front Panel Designer installation of our sister company in Germany whenever you get ready to order your design. Schaeffer-AG Download


    This way your order from the Netherlands goes directly to Schaeffer in Germany and will not have to take the detour over our server in the US.


    Best regards,

    The main problem with importing dxf files is problems with failure warnings about "not closed contours". If you encounter this problem you can try a simple detour:


    1. Import the dxf file in Corel draw and export it to a Hpgl file ( .plt)

    2. Import this in FPD as an engraving object.

    3. Export the FPD design as a DXF file

    4. Import this file into QCad and remove the panel outline

    5. Save this as a R12 DXF file.

    6. Import this file as a contour in FPD.
