Is it possible to use unicode characters for text engraving? Everything I'm trying is translating to a "?" character.

Unicode does not work. ALT + number coding works for symbols if that helps.

Thanks. That works for one of the characters I want (alt+225) but it doesn't seem to work correctly for alt+229. Any idea why?

Not sure. Try these: https://www.keynotesupport.com/websites/greek-letters-symbols.shtml
If no luck you will have to import your symbols as a logo file (.plt) file.

I'd like to supply a front panel from a Par-Metal case with a thickness of 0.125". This isn't an option in the thickness drop down in the front panel properties. Can I still use it, and if so, what thickness should I select? Thanks!

I'm interested in making some small engraved plates out of brass. Do you stock brass sheet (for instance .032 or .040), or would I have to supply the material? Any idea how this might affect cost vs. your standard aluminum?

Hello Gary. We unfortunately do not stock brass so you would have to supply it. Machine cost will be the same so make sure you select 'use customer provided material' in the material section of the design file so you get accurate pricing.

I found this program via a post by Scott Dupuie AK5SD a fellow ham radio operator. He designed a panel for an Elecraft KX3 radio and would like to know if you may have this panel or similar projects available to use? Thank you.

Everything we manufacture is custom which means we only make what design files our customers submit to us. Because of this we would not know if a Elecraft KX3 design was submitted or not.

Can text be bent to a curve. And....
Is there a font library I can view?

Where can I find a graphic file library?
I am in need of some rotary switch graphics including a 12pos switch.

Hi Craig. We unfortunately do not have a graphic library. If you can find the rotary graphic you would like to use by searching the web you can import the graphic onto your panel using the insert graphic tool in the toolbar.
