I'm all for single line fonts being natively supported on easel... and here's why.
I have been tasked with making office door signage. The originals looked like this:
Simple right? nope...
Here's what happens when I import the text (cambam font) converted to paths from Inkscape
1. The spacing for the objects
gets thrown off every time. This is most noticeable with the "i" shaped objects
2. The toolpath is all jacked up. Why can't it just follow a path? I have tried On Path
, and even Fill
. The lines are THERE
, why can't I just follow those lines?
Admittedly, I'm using a 1/16" ball end mill, but seeing as I only need to cut a mere .003" to remove the black top layer, the cutting diameter should be negligible.
Am overlooking something? Or am I just going to have to give in and "invest" in VCarve Pro? Maybe some 2.5D freeware??? Such a simple operation should be able to accomplish with easle.
Please let me know if I'm just being newb and call me out. I will am very open to criticism at this point.
