Clock Face Hour Marking

Post by cjmcdonald »

I am interested in creating a clock design using VCarve. Is there a way to determine the points in a circle that would represent the hours of a clock face? In other words, is there a way to plot a mark every 30 degrees where the hour would be?

Thank you.

It's come up few times on the forum. This is one thread -

As with many things in VCarve there are several ways of doing it but most will use the Circular Copy tool align the numbers from there.
