adding logo to design & make plaque

Postby Hali » Mon Jan 28, 2019 6:41 pm

Hello, Newbie here and hoping for help. I have purchased a design & make hockey plaque and am trying to add our teams logo to the area of the plaque that is milled out. Can anyone point me in the right direction to have the logo area left raised for me to v carve logo onto it?

A picture would help. If you don't want a section of a component machined draw a closed vector around the area then in the Roughing/Finishing toolpath use Selected Vector(s) under Machining Limit Boundary.

Should be the same as the text you've added. Create the v-carve toolpath and make sure the Project onto 3D is checked.

Thank you so much Adrian, it was the project onto 3d that I was missing. Wow I should have asked for help hours ago.

How would I make them into 3D to match the other items?

You can't with VCarve. You would need Aspire to make 3D items from scratch.
