  • raw aluminum condition

    I have a panel to be made soon for which the exposed raw aluminum at the cut edges is unacceptable, so we will need to get them anodized afterward. So I selected the raw aluminum material in the software and was warned that you do not guarantee surface condition.


    Is the condition going to be good enough that I can buff out imperfections before anodizing, or am I better off ordering an anodized panel and having it stripped and re-anodized afterward?


    I don't need a polished surface, my buffing would end up with a brush finish if that makes a difference.


    Thanks in advance,

  • More Colours

    Hi, I've recently downloaded the software and done a few trial runs of the FPE software and am more than impressed.


    Since this is particular section is wish list I'd like to ask that purple or violet infil colour and/or anodisation be considered for possible future inclusion. This has become a standard colour for greywater systems and it's inclusion would please one of my customers.

  • Non Design Layer

    It will be of great aid to have a layer that can be hidden or visible that will not be used in the design by Front Panel, but will be used by designer for various uses.

    Example of use:

    To add comments or part numbers, instructions of functions etc, This can be used in the documentation for the design.

  • Acess Violation when using cut or copy

    So I went to use FPD this morning and I can not use the copy or cut command without an access violation message popping up in German.


    I have rebooted, removed, rebooted again, reinstalled, and I still can not get the FPD program to behave.


    Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

  • Language selection?



    My copy of the software installed in what looks to be German. I did select English (US) during the install. Any suggestions on how to correct this?
