  • 3D viewing in FrontPanel Designer

    I have just completed my design exported it into DXF but it does not produce a 3D image. I also cannot find a 3D image view in Front Panel Designer.

  • Material Choice for Boat Panel

    I have a client looking to replace a boat gauge panel (plastic) with with a brushed aluminum finish. Is there a aluminum/coating preferred for the marine environment.

  • Display cover

    Hi,

    I am designing a v front panel for a product with Front Panel Designer. The panel has a 30mm x 12mm rectangular cutout for a LED display. I found on your web-site that you also offer display covers in clear or red acrylic.

    1. Question:
    How do I design or specify a display cover in Front Panel designer?

    2. Question:
    I want the display cover to be inset into the cutout from behind. The glue edge width on the long sides has a max of 2mm, On the short sides the max width is 4mm. Ideally the material would be 2mm Acrylic, meaning the glue 'ledges' are 0.5mm thick. Can you do that?

    3. Question:
    Ideally I want Icon graphics on the front panel. Engraving is too course of a technology for what I need. When will you be able to offer printing capability? Either screen printing, Inkject printing or UV photoresist type printing should work for me.

  • Shape combining

    I would love to see a feature that would permit combining shapes in a "smart" fashion.

    Grouping cutouts or cavities produces a Union function, where the combined outline is cut away. Currently, this is not done cost-effectively, as there machining charges are the simple sum of the individual shapes, not that of the outline or the total area.

    A different and useful combining function would be an Intersection, where the result would be to cut out only the parts that overlap between shapes. A particular application would be a component outline (or cavity recess) for a circular D-hole connector whose body shape in a square overlaying a circle. We can create a through-hole cutout approximation as a Quadruple D-Hole, but not as a cavity.

    (As a component outline, this would be an ideal shape to be tagged as Non-Cutting!)

  • Scale Generator

    Is there a tutorial for using the Scale Generator on Mac OS 10? I have it installed and open to the dialog box, but that's about as far as I can get.
