#1 Housing Scripts for Front Panel Designer

Post by Thermionic Idler »

For those of you who use (or who are looking to use) Front Panel Express (Schaeffer AG in Europe) to generate custom project housings, there are some scripts and videos here which cover some rather cunning ways of achieving a U-box - so a good way to get a chassis from FPE products without the costs spiralling out of of control from having to create multiple separate panels.

I haven't tried the scripts myself, I'm still playing around with the basic software, but the "Theory of Bending Panels" video goes into the spec for the cavity in question, and based on that it may not even be necessary to import the script if you know what you're doing.

I'm intending to make use of this for my pre-amp project so watch this space.
