Excellent work there Tore, did you do all the cut out work yourself or was it all made to measure?

As I mentioned earlier, I have used Front Panel Designer. It is actually a very simple CAD tool in which you design your metal works. The actual machining of the metal is then done in Germany and after a few days it is delivered home.

Coincidentally, I downloaded FPD today! (I had been using Visio to draw up front & back panels and then generating '.dxf' files, to send to ModuShop ... but after they recently stuffed up one of my front panels, they suggested I use FPD to generate the .dxf files!

Hopefully, I can ask you Qs if I get stuck?

Andy

Andy,

Autocad is not a very dificult tool to learn and will let you do almost anything with it.
Also it is very easy to fix and adjust the drawing as per feedback from modushop.
I know i have asked for some cuts in my original Maya drawings that were just not possible with their machinery (which is nevertheless quite good).

Thanks, saf.

I have downloaded AutoCAD 2018 ... do you know where I can find a User Manual?

(I gave up on FPD!)

Thanks,
Andy

Andy,

Autocad is a professional tool, with millions of users around the world.
Try to learn some basics with Youtube Videos and Tutorials.
You dont need much more than drawing lines, cicles and curves in order to make some fascias in 2D.

All true, saf. I have been using Visio to draw my front & back panels ... Visio can output .dxf files. These were compatible with Modushop's previous CNC machine but their new machine doesn't seem to like Visio's .dxf files - so text doesn't come out correctly.

Gianluca suggested I use FPD but I couldn't figure out how to use it. So when you suggested AutoCAD ... I downloaded it.

But I am unable to understand how to dimension the basic front panel outline (before I start to put the holes and text on it) - hence my request for a user manual for the version that I downloaded (2018).

The "2016 Tutorial" that I found seems to have a different UI to what I see with 2018!

Andy
