Understand that is what vcarve does well. Plan to upgrade at a later date.
But if you selected a font vector. Then selected the Engrave option in tool path in 2dcut. Then
you can selected from your tool database V-bit 90, 45, 60 etc. It allows you selected the degree of the cut. Or
even select cross hatch. Allowing you place a texture pattern at the bottom of the cut out font within the
the text engrave option. This works well with other vectors besides just fonts.
I discovered that onsrud engraving bits has for example a 60' bit with a flat tip @ .09 inch (2.25mm) 1/4" shank p/n 37-15 for example.
This should allow you to have a flat bottom on the font I cut vs the texture pattern.
I made some simple test cuts on scrap walnut today using a 90' 1/4" v-bit. Selected a 30' cross cut pattern as well
as a cross cut. Both came out very nice with different results.
I ordered a flat bottom bit, will wait results.
If you like for me to post a simple pic, let me know.
