View Full Version : Centerline TXT over background

06-06-2015, 04:04 PM
I am trying to carve a large V grove (approx. 10" high) letter over a bark background. I do not want the background to show in the letter. If I use a 60 or 90 degree bit, will it carve the letter correctly? Using designer 1.180.
Thanks for any advice.

You may have to turn Conform off and change your bit length to carve below the touch depth.
Or, do it in two mpcs where you jog to touch in a lower spot of the carve done in the first mpc.

You're not going to get a good result with 10" high centerline text regardless of background. The strokes will be too wide for the v bit to cut in on pass, so the result will not be good looking in my opinion. I think raster would be a better choice. If you post an mpc it would help.

Copy and paste the area with the background. On one copy remove the background and add your text and make it a group. I haven tried that, but fool with it - that is where I would start anyway.
