α10 Panel CAD File

Hello Everyone,

I'm towards the end of my α10 and I need to get some panels made. I found the files for front panel express but does anyone have CAD files or know how to convert a fpd file to inventor or solidworks file? I'm an electrical engineering student at Texas A&M and I can bring my own aluminum and use there CNC machines for free so I just need the CAD files. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

If you run Front Panel Designer software with the .fpd file, it can export into other formats including .dxf, .svg and .stp. I have not tried using any of these for actual CNC use, you can try it out and let us know.

That's a good call, I was able to export the drawings as a STEP file and open it in Solidworks. The text was lost but that's not to bad to add back. I'll give everyone an update once its all milled.

Thank you for the help @amb
