Posted: Fri Jun 21, 2019 1:54 pm
i tried to make a name badge for my dog i stated by making a boc 29mm square this was to represent the diameter of the badge i then put a 29mm circle inside the box I then did the text making sure that the text was all within circle's diameter, I then proceeded to the toolpath menu and chose quick engrave i save the toolpaths to gcode and proceeded to my cnc machine because i chose the corner of the box for my start point i set cnc up with the same square 29mm and put the name-plate within the square and set the 0,0, position and the z depth and proceeded to mill the name-plate using a 60 degree v-bit perhaps the wrong choice but i am new to this so the finished results were not too bad but the text that was written did not emulate the size in the drawing it was smaller and i think slightly to the right of centre. big question what did i do wrong and don't hold back i want to learn this software ??????
