You’ll want a digital file if you’re sending the panel out to be cut. But you may also want to print out actual size pictures, tape them to the panel, in the airframe, sit on cushions, make airplane noises. This was useful for me as I wear progressive lenses, and I found that if I wanted to go from ‘outside’ to the AI on the efis without moving my head, I needed to move the efis a bit lower. Worked well for me.

Rob, does Solidworks, have data base to build virtual panels via "drag & click"?
