I set the depth to 1/32 and it’s still blowing past that and messing up font, any ideas? This is a vector from illustrator, the artwork is not public and requires licensing
Can you share the file so we can look at it?
thanks Dave, see attached
I wish you could import fonts into easel, because its trying to force the flat bottom because of the vector and it would be great to have the V shape groove
Now I see what you’re talking about. Wait for someone more experienced than me to chime in. That font is going to kill you. The double L in collegiate as an example, because there’s no material left between the letters. Part of me thinks you’re gonna have to run deeper than 1/32 to get better results.
well, I did 1/8 and it was so deep it basically removed the letters, then I tried to go shallower and it basically ignored me, it still tries to carve like 1/8th even though I set to 1/32, I manually changed depth per pass and got the same, I agree though, I think the font is too thick in illustrator, which I cant control, bummer
I also wonder if the pine is just too soft and its geteting flecked off
You’re never going to get a vbottom with that font, no matter how shallow you try to cut it. It’s the design of the font. Compare that with the ‘Pro’ fonts in Easel.
Best thing to do is find something close in the font library and reset the type
I used to have this problem ALL THE TIME… 90 degree V bit did the trick. I use both the Diablo (Freud) from Homedepot and Amana, never had the same problem. I’ve stupidly tried the 60 agin for other projects but blasts details. So 90 v it it is forever now.
You can make your text in another program like photoshop where you have a greater variety of fonts, save it as a jpeg and image trace it into Easel.
