  • Height and Width not matching on printouts dimensions

    Hello guys,

    first of all thanks for this wonderful product.

    I've bee trying to design my first front panel and I was very impressed with the professional look of the results,but I'm experiencing something I couldn't explain,and I hope you guys could help me out:

    If I print to Acrobat,creating a pdf file of the panel,I end up with a panel that is slightly smaller than the original one created in your software.

    The strange fact is that the difference in dimensions is affecting only the width and the height,but all the other elements,like holes and scales for knobs are printed with the correct dimensions.

    Any idea why this is happening?

    I'm using the version 4.11.

    Maybe I could send my source file to you guys,in order to check if I did something wrong.

     

    Thanks again

    Gio

  • Seahorse SE520 Template

    Does anyone have a template for the Seahorse SE520 case? Searching hasn't turned up anything. It has a slight curve to the sides that I can't seem to replicate myself. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Curved engraved lines

    I have noticed that it is possible to create an engraved rectangle with "rounded corners" of a specified radius, but it does not appear possible (as far as I can see) to engrave a similar-looking pair of intersecting straight lines joined by a curved arc.

     

    I suggest the addition of a "curved line" engraving tool, or the ability to pick a segment (angular arc of less than 360 degrees) from within the ellipse engraving tool. Possibly it could be similar to the curved slot tool, but a modification of the engraved ellipse parameters could provide more flexibility by allowing different major and minor axis dimensions.

  • Filled engravings crossing holes

    I am planning to place an engraved rectangular outline with rounded corners to surround a group of elements on a panel. This engraved line intersects the drill holes for the screws that mount the side profiles.

     

    Is there any problem with infilling an engraving that intersects a hole or countersink?

     

    If there are production problems that do not allow a filled engraving intersecting a hole, is there a minimum distance required between the engraved line and the machined area of the countersink or hole? And, if so, is there a way to build an engraved "rectangle" out of individual engraved line segments (that stop short of the hole) but can still emulate the "rounded corner" available in the rectangle engraving object?

     

    Also, if there is a problem with infilling of engravings that intersect a machined element, please confirm that there is no problem if these engravings are not filled (i.e. "no in-fill color").

  • Dimension details of Side Profiles

    The Manual for Enclosure Assembly shows diagrams of the Side Profiles 1 and 2, indicating that they include slots which could be used for locating circuit boards, etc.

     

    The diagrams do not show sufficient dimensional detail to allow the specific location of these slots to be determined accurately. Can you post a more detailed drawing that indicates the dimensions and location of each of these slots? If this is already available somewhere, could you please indicate where it may be found?
