I purchased the Pesante 2U case from the diyaudiostore, with the intention of acid-etching the front panel (like I have done for small enclosures), but got cold feet when I received the enclosure and saw how big an area on the front panel I would have to work with.

There was a Mr Majestic thread that included the Front Panel express files for many of the other Hifi2000 store offerings, but it does not have this particular panel. I found the .dxf files on the Hifi2000 website, but the Front Panel importer is expecting just a faceplate and not the full enclosure (in fact, expects a front panel shape .dxf and a separate panel cutout .dxf file). I just get error messages. Is this available somewhere else and I am just missing it?

These would be great to have on the diyaudiostore at the time of ordering; one could work on the front panel while waiting for shipping from Italy.

My concern just doing these from my own measurements is making sure the beveled holes front panel holes line up perfectly and with the correct bevel, since this is required for the stability of the box, which will be rack mounted. I do not have graphics software for .dxf files to edit and make the conversion from the Hifi2000 files.

Thanks in advance,

Mark
Please find a DXF file attached. Both FPX and Hifi2000 work with DXF files. FPD can import this DXF, and also export your finished DXF.

Both companies provide excellent and unique services for the DIYer. I would note that Hifi2000's pricing is very competitive especially on thicker panels, so it's worth asking for a quote (the best way to do that is via contact@diyaudiostore.com). Additionally Hifi200 can can perform services like re-anodization after working the metal, and safely working on 10mm panels, that FPX presently does not. Best of luck with your build

Thanks! I thought Hifi2000's pricing was great...I didn't know about the FPD export feature

Thank you very much!
