  • 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


    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?

  • Registration marks on customer supplied panel

    For a customer supplied panel, what is the preferred method of including some sort of registration mark on the designed panel to aid in checking the layout?


    For example, I have a panel that already has screw holes. I'd like to include these in the panel layout so that when the page is printed I can use that to align the printout with the panel to make sure things are lining up. But this is not a set of holes to be drilled when the panel is fab'd by you.
