  • Vector graphics programs

    I would like to design a panel that has a unique shape. I don't have any previous knowledge of CAD programs that support DXF type file formats, so I have been reading up on the topic. Do you recommend some simple CAD programs to help me begin to understand the process, and will allow me to design the exterior shape of a panel. Thank you for your support.

  • print graphic

    I am trying to add a print graphic to a panel, but the color of the graphic follows the color of the plate, which is not what I want.
    I saved the file in white for a black panel, but when I insert it on the plate design, it turns black?
    How can I change that color, thanks.

  • Cutout size question

    Square cutout question:
    If I have a b***on that is 10x10mm.
    What is the minimum cutout size I can make for it? Given that the minimum corner radius setting for a smooth square appears top be 0.5mm?

  • mask off areas from being anodized

    I have a couple of panel mounted (single 5/8 in hole) antenna connectors which I would like to be electrically connected to the aluminum panel.

    Is it possible mask off anodizing at specific small areas on the rear of the panel?

  • Front Panel Designer will not start on Kubuntu 16.10

    I'm unable to get Front Panel Designer to start on Kubuntu 16.10 Front Panel Designer appears to be dependent on libpng12, which is a rather old version, so it fails to start. libpng16 is the current version. Anyone know a workaround? Can Front Panel Designer be recompiled so it will work with the current version of libpng?
