• Send a PDF file
    I accept other file formats like Illustrator, Corel Draw, AutoCAD, Inkscape but chances are that the files look different on my computer (and other computers) and I will not replace parts with missing holes or different Fonts or shifted text/elements. (from my experience Inkscape and Alibre Design do not deliver good results)
    The best is to send a PDF file as it looks always the same on every computer. I never had a single problem with PDF files.
    A4-Format is too small for 19" panels. So just send A3 size PDFs.
    The file needs to be scaled 1:1
    Remove all cross-hairs in the middle of holes.
    Just add ONE dimension: the length of the panel (and remove all other dimensions)
  • Cuttings and Text needs to be seperated - but both needs to have the outside contour of the panel.
    Take a look at the screenshot below. This is how it works the best.
    I can also seperate the text and holes for you, but then I need to send you the PDF and you need to check it again.
  • Info about material thickness, and colour must be written above the file
    If you need to describe how your panel should look like in your mails = bad. I don't read all mails again before starting the cnc machine.
    The more you write - the more can go wrong.
    The best order-mails look like this: "Hi, I need 10 panels. The PDF file is attached. My shipping adress is...."

Example File:

Not sure how to export text and contour seperately? 
It's easy! Just copy your final design below the existing one. And then remove all text from the top one, and all holes from the bottom one. 

Within the last 15 years it turned out that sending the files like shown here is the best way. 
I generally accept any file formats, but in case something went wrong in production because the files had been sent differently from showing here, keep in mind that I probably can't refund the money. 

How to order:

  • Send a mail to info@frontpanels and attach the PDF file.

                Make sure you send all informations direclty for a quick processing:
                (Shipping adress including your full name and your country, VAT number - if you have one, quantity of the parts you need)

  • I will send a quotation including shipping costs (that's why I need your shipping adress)
  • You can pay with PayPal or bank transfer if the quotation looks good to you.
    ll start making the parts after receiving the payment. You'll automatically get a tracking link by mail when the parts are ready to ship.

              Info: We manufacture to order. A cancellation, subsequent change, exchange or return is therefore excluded.



Too complicated?

I can also draw whatever you need. We can design the panel together until the design is finished. Just send a mail of what you need to :
I charge 15€/15 minutes (+VAT) for making your custom layouts. To keep an eye of the costs, I can put a time-info below the preview-PDF-layout whenever I changed something.

If you want to order a standard frontpanel, parts or a special frontpanel just send me a mail.
Can't find the frontpanel you're looking for? No problem! I can make ANY Frontpanel. Just let me know what you need.

I will calculate the price including shipping. Be sure to include your complete shipping adress in your mail and the information about what you want to order.

Then you will get a mail with the total price and the payment instructions. (paypal or iban/bin bank transfer)
