Thread: Litho Text Depth.

  1. #1

    Default Litho Text Depth.

    Hi all, just wondering how to set the depth for lettering for a 1/4" litho with a 3/4" sled. I would like no more than 1/8" but I believe that it is pre set to 1/4". I know I can trick the CW but would prefer to learn how to do it another way. Kinda under the gun here.Thank you.

    Have you tried typing in various Depth and Height values for your text to see what the preview looks like? (Do you have Designer Pro with the Litho Preview capability?)

    Ok. Just select the text then type in numerical values in either the Depth or Height boxes until you get the text “look” you want. For example, the default height is “100”. Type in “50” to reduce the text height by half. Type in “25” to reduce by 1/4, etc

    You have "actual" text, right? (not some imported graphic!) ...and you are selecting the text so that the Depth and Height boxes are active?

    Please post your MPC here, or at least a screenshot so we can see exactly what you are doing.

    If you are doing the text as centerline you can verify the depth of cut by zooming on the text and holding your cursor of the deepest part of the text. On the bottom left of the designer screen the depth will show up as the last number. Also make sure you set your design board thickness to 1/4".

    Never occurred to me that it might be Centerline Text! If that is the case, Mike1 owes us each a dime apiece for being the umpteenth person to ask how to change depth on Centerline text!

    Mike1, please post a screenshot or the MPC so we can help you! (We just need a bit more info to know how to advise. The file or screenshot should be enough to fill in the blanks.)

    Everyone may know this, but always check the "Litho" material thickness. I bought 1/4" and my first 2 literally exploded. When I checked the thickness, it was .20. I was carving to point .19. once I accounted for thickness everything came out fine.
