Technique Help

Post by doglaw »


Whilst thumbing through your gallery images, I came across the A&E image and was interested in how you created it. From the looks of the image, the depth of the carve around the letters is shallower at the base of the letters then the top. Likewise, the letters themselves are cut deeper at the top of the letters then at the base. Could you share the crv file with me - or at least explain how you accomplished this with V-carve?

Love the software!

Hi Doug,

What you are seeing is simply an optical illusion.

This is created because the logo tapers inwards on the top edge of the letters, hence the vcarving gets deeper.

The crv file is attached so you can take a look at how the toolpath has been calculated.
