Thread: Cannot figure out how to raise pattern

    Default Cannot figure out how to raise pattern

    Been using the CW for a while and now working on a address sign for my family members. My issue is when I add the plaque pattern to my board the pattern is being carved .008" where I will be using centerline text. This is carving my stain & shelf liner off defeating the purpose of staining first. Anyone have any suggestions for a work around?

    Thank you

    It would help if you attach your .mpc

    One solution would be to put one ot two cards (business or playing) on the project where the bit finds the surface.
    This will tell the machine that the surface is higher than it really is so it won't actually carve as deep.

    Forgot about the card trick. I use that trick for my scanning probe all the time. Thanks for the reminder.
