I am new to this and my wife wants me to try and carve out a name for her niece. I am trying to find good fonts to use for names. We are wanting to do cursive. Every cursive I try to download and enlarge it gets jagged. A good list of carving fonts would be awesome to get. I know easel has some, but it is very limited.
May not be a long term or very elegant solution, but you can create a graphic using any font you have, safe it off, then use the Vectorizer app to bring it into Easel. It won’t be editable at that point, but I think it will be able to be enlarged smoothly since it will be a vector.
You have Vcarve, you should have led with that! It is loaded with tons of great fonts. Why would you import the SVG to Easel? All you should ever need to export/save from Vcarve is the gcode. Then you can send the gcode with UGS or Easel.
When you use the text tool in VCarve, make sure you have the “TrueType” button selected. This will then use TrueType fonts which are scalable without getting ‘jagged’ edges.
On my version, I used a font called “AR Decode” which is a cursive style font that looks nice when VCarved. See below for an example of this, however as mentioned above, the actual fonts you see are dependent upon the fonts that have been loaded onto your machine.
