    Your text carves to deep.

    You could change it to outline text so that you can control the depth of cut.

    The only ways to set the depth is to do the text as "outline" or create the text as a DXF and import it. With centerline you do not have direct control of the depth of cut.

    Ok. Even though you haven’t sent me my dime yet, I’ll answer this for you.

    Short answer - no, you do not have direct control of depth of VCarve of closed shapes (like text).

    Longer answer...

    Depth of a closed-shape VCarve is determined by two things:

    1) The total angle of Bit used (60 or 90 degree for Designer software)

    2) The inside distance between the lines that make up the closed shape

    Example...Type some text and choose Centerline style. Use the 60-degree bit. The side angle of the Bit will not go any deeper than the outlines of the text will allow. They are the “stops” for how far down the Bit will travel.

    Another Example...Use a 90-degree Bit on that same text. Since the Bit angle is greater, the Bit hits the “stops” sooner than the 60-degree Bit. Thus, the carve will be shallower

    All of this is calculated automatically so that the lettering is carved properly and without distortion. In other words, you Do Not want to manually change the depth anyway. If you did, the lettering will not look correct and you would have introduced distortion.

    I now understand, the best money I have ever spent . It is amazing how much I have learned on this one carve by changing it in every direction you could think of. Thank you so much to all for the experience and patience.
