    Thanks Ken, that is a great explaination of how it is used. I have it, only used it once or twice but never on a surface like, only within a carved region.

    I do not have the Conform program, but you can select the Demo function.
    This was what I was looking for, thanks. I knew there had to be a simple answer to it.

    If you have one of the newer versions of "designer" you can "try" conforming vectors on your projects. There is a check box in the tool menu to access it.

    I guess I didn't read well enough to see that somebody already suggested this.

    Conform vectors is a fantastic program/ plug-in. I just used it on my new violin binding 30 min ago... two thumbs up for a really cool idea and a well executed programing.

    I have a heart I'm trying to use conforming vectors on. I have attached. How can I make the words a little deeper, I'm hoping this will make them more visiable.

    Thanks

    Pick a different font that is thicker.

    First, you could assign the 60 degree V-bit rather than the default 90 degree.
    Second, you could select a slightly datker font, from the list, which will give you a deeper carve.
    The darker and wider the font sample, the deeper it will carve.

    ladjr, Change the V carving bit to a 60 degree bit and take a look at the difference. The 60 d. bit carves deeper than the 90d. in designer. So, if you choose the 60 d. bit in designer and actually use the 90d bit in your machine, it will carve deeper. Or, of course you have the option of actually carving witha 60d. bit.

    Thanks

    I tried the font but didn't get the response I was looking for. Now I will try the 60 degree

    Thanks Again

    Do it in black and sand then it will show up much better.
