How to Letter pop-out on Name plate?


(DavidFV) #1

What is the toolpath to create this nameplate USING ONLY Carbide Create? I was looking at the some texture, but can not figure out how not to texture the letters. Texture, V-carve, contour only choices in Carbide Create

To texture letters see: https://wiki.shapeoko.com/index.php/Creating_a_rustic_letter

To cut a letter in relief w/ a V carve around it see: https://wiki.shapeoko.com/index.php/Carbide_Create_Basics#Clearing_area_around_drawing

This project seems quite like to: https://wiki.shapeoko.com/index.php/Child_Name_or_Letter_Board — I’m pretty sure it’s letters cut out of a dark wood (walnut?) and inlaid into a lighter one (white oak?), with one set of letters (the name) done in two layers (both walnut and white oak) and glued onto (into a pocket?) on the board.
