  • Octagon Panel

    Basically, I'd like to create a panel that is an octagon. However I need the 45 degree corners different sizes. The only way I can see to do this is to place a rectangle at 45 degrees and extend it over the edges to look like the corners have been cut off. Is this the only way?

    There is a better way. You can import the exterior shape.


    Front Panel Designer won't let you trim or extend. Our software is not meant to be a complex CAD program. We would like to keep it as simple as possible and therefore allow imports.


    Any other CAD program will do to clean up the exterior shape you would need. Please save it as a dxf file and simply import it into Front Panel Designer. Check out one of our webinars at 1:20. There it talks about importing into Front Panel Designer.


    However, the method you described works as well. We would clean up the file for you instead. Please don't hesitate to call or email us. We are more than happy to walk you through the process.


    Best regards,
