engraving

Unread post by PAULVANTHOFF »

Hi there,
what is the best way to engrave my sheet?
for instance in design i got a panel and text on top.
Now i send my panel to cam, but there is no text.
I can type the text again in cam and use engraving.... but i rather import the text from design... is that possible?
is there a way to allready engrave the text in design or something so cam automatically engraves the panel?

Greets,

Paul.

We are using the option wood-engraving now... this works accept for some numbers and letters... for instance nr. 6 doesn't engrave the "O" , but only the top part. any help?

I beleive there are improvements in engraving included in version 6.21 so that you can use characteristics for engraving.
