  • 3U 19" Rack enclosure help

    Hello, I'm totally new to FPD, I've been working on a front panel for a 3U 19" rack enclosure which is actually pretty easy. However I'm pretty lost on how to design the rest of the enclosure. The manual helps a little, I think I can use either of the housing enclosures, right? I've downloaded the templates but I don't understand how to scale them to the size I need.


    Anything to get me on the right path would be appreciated, I'm sure I'll have more questions. Thanks

  • placeholder



    My questions concerns macro objects.

    I would like to create a temporary place holder or box around a macro object ( drill holes in this case) that represents the dimensions of the physical item that’s going to be bolted into the holes. I was thinking of using the cavity command (which I haven’t used yet) to do this. Of course I would want to delete this box before ordering. I guess I would use the ungroup command to do this since the box would be integral to the macro object.

    My questions is, is their an easier way to create this placeholder or a more logical way to implement what I’m trying to do?.

  • ruler



    newb here.. so please excuse me if this question has been answered somewhere else already. I did a search and it turned up nothing.


    Does this software have a ruler?. A ruler that you can stretch from one point to another and see the relative distance.

    Is adding and subtracting coordinates the only way to check your work?.

  • Filling Curved Slots

    When adding a curved slot from the menu, I don't see a means to fill the slot with colors like other engravings. How is that accomplished and what is the default? Thanks!
