  • Aircraft Instrument Panel

    I am attempting to create an instrument panel and would like to know the best way to create both a 3 1/8 and 2 1/4 instrument hole with the 4 screw holes in the proper locations. I don't see a macro shape or any example templates to use.

  • Pop-up origin description

    When initially using the Front Panel Designer work station, I had a problem understanding the exact purpose of the 3rd icon on the pop-out origin selection bar. The pop-up description for that icon states "Enter coordinates based on the reference point of a object". I did not and still don't understand that language. I would instead use "Enter coordinates to be in common with the reference point of an object". Basically, the coordinates of the new object to be the same as the coordinates of the selected existing object.

  • Windows 7 crash

    It's been working for 3 months, but now it opens its window for a few seconds and then it's gone. Windows task manager says it's running, but nothing is visible. I've erased, restarted and reloaded four times...

  • Serial Labeling

    I have an order of 10 Identical panels that will each be labeled "panel 1", "Panel 2", "Panel 3" ect. Can I order the panels such that I only have to submit 1 design file and request that each panel be labeled 1 thru 10? Or is it best to submit 10 different design files? If they can be labeled serially, what is the best way to request this (design note, email ect.)?

  • Slot tolerances

    I want to cut a 4 x 20mm slot, 3mm deep, in a 4mm thick anodized panel (which is 60 x 85mm). Into this slot I want to slide (and later bond) a 4 x 20 x135mm anodized panel, so that this thin panel will be perpendicular to the 60x85mm panel.


    My question concerns the tolerances of the slot and 4mm stock thickness. I was planning on making the 4x20mm slot 4.06 x 42.0 mm (with 0 radius corners); should the 4.06mm width be sufficient for the 4mm thick stock?
