Raise letters

I am having a problem building a project with raised letters. I already made the project, but it is basically trying to cut a pocket. I would rather everything be except what i have drawn. I have built the project, selected everything with a rectangle and combined it. I don’t know what my next step is to remove everything except what i built. i only need it .125 high. Help.

If I understand what you are trying to do and you are using Easel to create your project, then, you would need to create a pocket .125 deep. Then highlight the parts that you have drawn and place them into the pocket with a zero cut depth. When you carve this the pocket is created around the parts you put into the pocket. The pocket is .125 deep and the parts has no cut depth so it appears to be .125 above the bottom of the pocket.

Hi Charles

Here is a project you can reference. Basically, draw a rectangle and send it all the way to the back and cut however deep you want it. Then add the objects on top that you want to be raised and set their cut depth to 0.


Let me know if you have any more questions.

Matt your project isn’t shared publicly, I’ve attached one that I think @CharlesCastillo is referring to.

Oops I thought I clicked the public button to give me the link…is there something more within Easel I have to do to make it public?

File, share, share with link, highlight the link, copy it and hit save. Then post the link in the forum

Ohhh I’m guessing I forgot to hit save after clicking share with link. Let me know if this works now for future reference!


Worked great!!

Thank you for your help. Your test allowed me to see exactly what i needed to. I greatly appreciate the help
