Hello Vectric forum, long time no see. Here's a couple of monograms I made this morning. -AD :twisted:

They look great. Ive been doing a bunch of them myself.
Are you using plywood or MDF. I have used both. Once the word gets out on those, orders just keep on coming.

Great job,

Those look really good. I know several people who would like something like that. Mind if I asked what font you used?

Thanks,
Van

Yeah, that's not "vines". This was a free font I found online. When I get back in front of my PC, I'll let y'all know. -AD

Erik, that is really interesting. It makes it MUCH easier to identify the letters.

Erik,

The prism effect is very nice. But what size letters were you using and what material thickness? When I tried making a prismatic letter 18in tall out of 0.5" thick material, VCP told me I needed 0.9" material thickness to get full prism on the letter. Maybe I'm misunderstanding this technique?

I have different sheet thicknesses in stock, so I will use the thickness that is best with the design and height of the chosen font/shapes.

That is the font and looks to be free.

I did find that font on another site, http://www.dafont.com/monogram-kk.font and lists it as free for personal use, but commercial use does require license.
