  • error starting the ordering program

    I attempted to order a panel and am getting the error messages below when I try to start the ordering program. I had just ordered some other panels a week or so ago and had no problems. It happens if I select 'order the current panel' or 'start the ordering program'. This is on a windows 7 machine and it's fpd 4.31. I tried re-booting my PC and also re-installing FPD. Any idea what the issue might be?

  • Reverse Side Engraving

    Is it possible to engrave the reverse side of a pannel?


    I have some feed-trough connectors I would like to label: From X and To Y.


    I can't really see why this would be a trouble, I think I would have to send 2 files, since the software doesn't seem to support it by itself but just wanted to make sure.

    I would like to know if anybody has any example of the results of 0.2mm engraved text infilled. I have somme small print I have to infill and would like to know if the result will be OK if engraved at 0.2mm.

  • 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?

  • Linux Software - Ordering


    I am using the Linux software. It's great and I am very thankful that you are supporting Linux, however when I select "Start Ordering Program", nothing happens. Is there something I'm missing? I sure hope there is another option to complete my order.

  • Print Panel on reverse side

    It would be so nice to print the panel with a "reverse side" view. So you are looking at it as if you flipped the panel over and are working on the under side of it. This would be such a huge help !!


    I constantly have to print out a panel then trace all the lines flip the paper over and re-trace all the lines so I can look at the panel from the other side. It takes me so much time to do this and I loose accuracy doing it.


    That's the one and only wish I have but would really love to have this option.
