  • Hole diameter text toggle.

    I'd like to be able to read the diameter next to each hole, and toggle the view of diameter text on/off.

    It would improve accuracy if there was a "View" toggle switch that would allow us to read the diameter of each hole in text displayed adjacent. Great for making sure that all of the holes are what we thought they were.

     

    Under "View:" there exists (V4.11) an

    "Outline mode" and a "Show refrence points" display function. This is where you would add the "Show dimensions" display layer toggle switch.

     

    Perhaps (for now) to make this an easier to write software feature you'd only display the dimensions of thru-holes - because that is what we usually have the most inserted of, and most need of seeing.

    Display text of every X,Y, and Z dimensions can come later. 8*D

     

    I'd be VERY nice to have the diameter text show up in the print-outs for checking and approval too.

     

    Thank you very much,

    JoeT

  • Small bug in Windows FPD

    (Note: FPD Version 4.11)

     

    The minor bug is that the filenames extension does not change to SVG, (from DXF) when naming a file to be exported.

    Found under: File> Export> "Save as type" SVG.

    It writes the file with *.dxf extension either way.

    Saving an "SVG files (*.svg)" can overwrite an existing *.DXF file (after warning) since the extension does not change.

     

    Thank you very much!

  • Cavity

    If I create a circle cavity, what color will it be in the middle?? Can I specify a color to fill the cavity??

  • Cavity Example

    Hello,

    I'm entirely new to FPE and had a tiny question. Could you please give me an example of a cavity?A pic would be nice.

     

    I have an LCD(50*40)mm which I need to put in a FP. The only way to hold the LCD in place is to create a cavity on the reverse side of the FP. This allows it to stay in place. I still have to support it from the reverse side, but I can take care of that.

     

    Will a cavity do such a thing?

  • Option to break sharp edges

    It would be a nice feature to add the option for breaking sharp edges on panels.

    Some of the enclosures I have built, have caused some nasty cuts due to the razor sharp edges of the panels.

     

    This option could be added under the material selection.

    Currently the only way to do this is by verbal request.

  • Can you tap heatsinks?

    I have some extruded heatsinks, to which I would like to screw-mount some transistors. Is your equipment capable of tapping one of these?
