different cutters

Postby David Tolley » Fri Dec 08, 2017 11:33 am

Hi All

completed the first test cut on the Workbee which went well but with a couple of minor errors (toolpath left a ridge to the bottom of the work piece, which I have put down to material movement, we wait and see on that one.

todays obvious question from the newby as follows:

I wish to cut out a shape with a 0.25mm cutter, however I then wish to add txt with a 0.125 cutter, can this be done in one design or do I need to copy the design and add the txt only on design no 2 with the smaller cutter, or do I use the filter option or how do I do this please.

Many Thanks for your help and advice

The whole thing can be done in one Cut2D file but you'll need to generate two cutting files. One for the 0.25mm bit and one for 0.125mm bit.
