8xSID MB-SID PCB (aka. MB-6582) - request for comments

166 posts in this topic

Has anybody got the plugin for the frontpaneldesigner to create dxf files?

I might then do some panels on the laser machine here at university.

Kind regards

Michael

I'm assuming you're making them from plastic? If so, i'd imagine it would help keep costs down.

Personally, I don't think plastic's a bad idea, good stuff's pretty durable (3mm upwards).

Are you in the UK?

If you are only just reading about this PCB order and want to join in, you must quickly send me a PM with your email address so I can include you in the PayPal payment requests, and also tell me if you want to join the future bulk order of panels so we can keep that total up to date. Payments received after Friday the 13th July will be politely refunded.

To start with, the panel is 1.5mm thick to suit the case. Maybe plastic that thin with a lot of ribbing behind it would be strong enough, but part of the "design" of the MB-6582 was to let the panel reinforce (and straighten!) the PCB, since the PCB is so large, the warping is obvious.

The plugin costs 99 Euro to buy from Schaeffer.

I can produce a DXF version of the panels manually... I should probably do this anyway for getting quotes on the panel bulk order, I think a lot of places prefer DXF files.

What about just reading this thread before posting? Wilba specifically requested that people order via PM (personal message..., including your paypal email address) and not via forum post...

I don't mind if someone accidentally overlooks a post, especially when they then pay within 10 minutes.  ;D

You know, over half the price of FPE is the engraving, a single color silkscreen would drop the price quite a bit (try pricing it with just the holes)

Try to export all text engravings as a HPGL-file and re-import that file into FPE. I have a feeling that this could be considerably cheaper while rendering the same results... :) Additionally, this would allow the use of really fancy fonts, if you like.

Best regards, ilmenator
