Metal Type for front plate when choosing Rear Bend Rackmount ?

When choosing Rackmount for a new design, I can select the Front Panel Metal Type. However, when choosing Rear Bend Rackmount, this option does not exist. This is a limitation of the program, or a manufacturing limitation ? If the former, how can I specify – for example – Aluminium ? And a collatera...

what is the thickness of the painting ?

Assuming a standard steel rack case (whatever U size), when calculating the Y position for some side cutouts that depends on internal spacers or fixings placed on the case base, I need to involve the chassis metal thickness value of that case base (that is, the case itself). This is specified in the...

Re: issues with Mini USB cutout

I deleted the local library culprit file, I re-synchronised the library and yes, now everything is back to normal. On this occasion I noticed something peculiar: if I do whatever standard cutout (say, a circle) and move the cutout over a red exclusion zone, a popup warns me about the overlap; howeve...

Re: issues with Mini USB cutout

Just for info, in PD version 5.6.6 the default Mini USB library is still not fixed, or at least not completely fixed: when placing the Mini USB cutout, a warning still occurs (see snapshot), except that after ignoring the warning the resulting cutout seems to be ok in the final drawing. I still have...

Re: specifying the default fixing screws from the design stage ?

I've been told that things have changed since my previous orders, the current process dropped the SolidWorks road and so the approval process can be skipped. If so, where or when can one change the case screw positions ? At least in my case, I always had problems with those screws. There were situat...

specifying the default fixing screws from the design stage ?

Until now, I always had to ask for screw positioning of the upper cover in the approval process, since Protocase Designer didn't offer this adjustment. Has this changed in recent versions ? For example, on a rackmount case, can I specify (modify) right from the start the horizontal position for a pa...

what means "Has Seam Welds" ?

<subj.> when creating a new rear bend rackmount case. I mean, what is the difference on the final product if the rackmount case has "seam welds" or has not "seam welds" ?

issues with Mini USB cutout

I created a standard 1U rack and need to place a "Mini - USB type B, Receptacle" cutout. However, upon placing, an error control tells me that CompositePath minimum dimension cannot be less than half the metal thickness: (0.024"). Click accept to proceed as is or reject to undo. [Accept]/[Reject]". ...

x64 version (Windows) is really 64 bit ?

I found that, apparently, a 64 bit version has been released since May or something. I wanted to test the file protocaseDesigner-x64-4.7.3-Jul19,17.exe file, but the default directory offered by installer was C:\Program Files (x86)\Protocase Designer 4 (i.e. programs location for 32 bit). Is there a...
