If you like a more rounded over look on my version you can just add it using a point roundover bit to some of the vectors. This isn't really that difficult. Just a little judicious use of the vector trim tool and layers.
Someone asked me to create a sign similar to the one shown in the image. If I combine the text and the rectangle into one object, the lower case "y" will have its bottom part disappear. I want to make the sign in two pieces so that the "y" can be seen. How do I create the sign? sign01.PNG I think t...
Maybe something like this? Over the past 15 years or so I have made at least, without exaggeration. 50 of these. Lily is made of Cherry and Jaron is Maple. IMHO Maple is the best wood for these kind of nane signs.
I tried the same settings on one of my 3d projects and I didn't get the results that you are getting. I can't really tell from your pic but it looks like you may have an object that extends to the edge on the right side and not on the left. That may be the cause.
Most bit manufacturers will provide a dxf profile of their bits. Amana, Magnate.net, etc. Magnate.net provides a complete (almost) sheet drawing of all of their bits. When I use one I just open it in Aspire and use the editing tools to split one of the profiles at the center and use the right half t...

You might want to use a roughing toolpath first. Roughing toolpaths are designed for removing most of the material and can be in multiple passes. The depth is controlled by the pass depth. A finishing toolpath depth cannot be controlled but after the roughing toolpath there is only a small amount of...

Why not just make a leveling pass as the first toolpath. Set the material thickness in V-Carve to the thinnest part of the actual board. Make a rectangle just slightly larger than the actual board and use it to form a pocket toolpath with the depth of cut set to 0 (zero). The bit I use for this is t...

I'm a little confused. The trim tool is for trimming vectors and the "Clear area of selected component" tool is used to clip off areas of selected components. If your using the trim vectors tool be sure the "Rejoin trimmed vectors" box in the trim tool dialogue screen is checked.
