V-Carving for the Absolute Beginner – Part 2 – A Simple Text Project
More down here ↓↓↓ Click SHOW MORE!
This is the 2nd in a mini-series of videos geared toward the person who has never worked with CAD or CAM software before.
In this video, we’ll continue our work in v-carving by demonstrating how to make a simple address number sign. I’ll show you 2 ways to create the same sign, discuss True Type vs Single Line fonts, and show you how the pass depth controls the number of passes a v-bit needs to make in order to carve the project. I’ll calculate 2 toolpaths in the Vectric software, then compare and contrast the difference in the results.
If I’m completely honest, I’m slightly annoyed with Vectric and very pleased with them at the same time. The improvements they’ve made to the Text Editor in VCarve 9.5 has made the process so simple, it kind of took the wind out of my sails a bit. Cheers to the Vectric development team! You really streamlined the process!
