Front panel Switch scale drawing, no decimal on angles?
« on: February 25, 2021, 04:59:56 AM »
 I will try to explain it the better I can, I'm drawing the switch scales on front panel designer (to be imported on Inkscape) for my 23 positions Blore Edwards switches. The angle without "position" is 15º (according to Datasheet) os to draw that on FPD I would put the beginning angle as -82.5º and the finish angle as 262.5º.

 But seems that I cannot use decimals on FMD for angles, how do you deal with it?

If you have 23 positions with 15 degree intervals, the total uses is 22 x 15 so you have 30 degrees left over.

Since there is an odd number of positions you will most likely arrange the positions such that there is one at 90 degrees i.e. at the top or at the bottom of the scale. The other positions will be in 15 degree increments either side of this so there will be no need for decimal angles.
