Thanks for the quick reply. I do not know why I cannot seem to find the correct videos. I think I just need to take time to watch them all. I have watched a large number, but obviously not enough.
Now, is there a video that shows that once I have a sign design how to best use it for production? For example:
Welcome to John's Workshop...
Feel free to watch, or pay to give or get advice.
I want to produce this sign over and over with different names. If I have to tweak the text and convert it to curves, a simple edit of the name does not work. I would love to find 2 "go to" fonts to use for v-carving, one regular printed type text and one script (cursive). The script fonts that I have tried have to be welded and then you have to use node edit to fix the "issues" welding has caused.
I am thinking that someone has a workflow that is quite simply:
Standard dimension piece of wood.
Standard v-carve bit for the design.
A file that is set up for quick edit. Change the name and calculate the toolpath, save it and go carve it.
Thanks again for all the great advice.
