I’m starting to grasp some basic concepts with my Shapeoko xxl, however I am in need of some advice on which is the best bit to use for some fine detail lettering. I’m currently designing a small ring box and want to engrave " Forever Together " on the top of the box. Box Dimensions are 2.5" × 2.5".
The community has some notes on how V angle relates to feature size at:
This is a 45 deg bit I used. It is large because I chose to make it that large; however, I’m sure this bit can capture the intricate details you are trying to achieve. If not, they have a 30 deg bit which would be for more fine letters and etc.
This is a really nice font to use. I’ve used a 60 deg V-bit with it and it looks great when milled. However, I haven’t done a really small size in it. Practice on a piece of pine scrap. I just added it as a graphic so you could see some of the shapes of letters.
What font is this? Is one from the drop down list in CC?
It’s Tiranti Solid Regular available from:
You can use it in Carbide Create after licensing and installing it. (If CC is running, close and restart it to refresh the font list)
Thanks for answering Will. I just now logged in to do so myself.
Great looking font!!
