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
- The spacing for the objects gets thrown off every time. This is most noticeable with the “i” shaped objects.
- The toolpath is all jacked up. Why can’t it just follow a path? I have tried On Path, Inside, outside, 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.
