adjusting the depth ofa carve regoin

Postby watsonswords » Thu Nov 14, 2013 4:08 am

I am new to this forum. Hello everyone. I am tring to design a project on 3/4 board. how do I adjust the depth of the carve region with 3d figure and text? If I put the project on 1.5 thick board the bottom of the region is about 3/4 inch deep and the text is to tall. I would like to carve this on 3/4 inch board but not sure how to do it. If I leave on 1 1/2 board I am not sure how make the text not a tall. is there some one that help. I am a real newby.

Thanks for any help

I believe that when the setup page is up you can adjust the z depth.

Which software package are you using?
In aspire you can adjust the depth of the model under the modeling tab
In 3d cut I think its when you import the model
woodmizer sawmill and joe's hybrid cnc, a good combination
