  • Importing DXF Holes

    I would like to use FPD for it's font support but I cannot figure out how to import my dwg. Yes, I can import the DXF as a free contour but the holes become contours. I'm not bothered that much by the difference in price but I am concerned that milling vs drilling will not produce the best possible part quality. Is there a way to convert .dwg or .dxf to .fpd so that circle entities become holes. Minus text engravings and the 4 oblong 1U mounting holes, my project is just 40+ holes ranging from 3mm to 3/8" so I think it should be drilled.

     

    Pls advise,

     

    Mike

  • Panel for Pelican 1400 case

    I need a panel for a Pelican 1400 case with a Pelican panel ring installed.

    I assume this has been done many times, but a forum search on Pelican 1400 got not hits

     

    Does anybody have the front panel outline with 10 ea 6-32 holes for fasteners

    That they can share?

     

    I also need library items for Neutrik panel mount jacks, BNC connectors, USB B panel mount jack, and switchcraft power jack.

     

    Thanks

  • Engraving on User Panel With 2.5mm Edge?

    Good Day,

     

    I have a panel (steel) which has a 2.5mm lip on the top and bottom running the length of the panel. Is it possible to do any engraving on this panel, or does the lip keep the tools from correctly reaching the panels? (as in: do I really need to use a flat panel?)

     

    Many thanks!

  • Insert free contour as svg

    Great software! Thanks You!

     

    I work with MacOSX

     

    Your Insert free contour is a great feature , but I have problems getting dxf files from my other cad programs on MacOsx.

     

    You support export of SVG and dxf so its great to connect to additional programs.

     

    Could it be possible for You to add the ability to import "svg" files as well at the contour part not only dxf. This might be much easier than support eps files for Mac.

     

    That would help me a lot to make more Macro Parts much faster with other Cad Programs. I use "TouchDraw" now.

     

    Thank You again!
