Hi there, ok so I’m new to Carbide create. When I try and v carve text it looks like a skeleton. Why isn’t the cutter following the centerline of text to make a nice letters?
Please help lol.
It’s the latest version of carbide create btw.

If you’ve written text and have selected that text with the v-carve toolpath (and also make sure you have a v-bit selected in the tool of the toolpath, that should work. Things can go sideways if you have multiple objects (text and a shape outside for example). Are you able to post a file or share a screenshot of what you’re talking about?
The #302 is defined as a 1/2" diameter bit. You can define a new 1/4" bit and advanced vcarve will work fine or use a bit with the geometry that matches the tool definition. The code is doing what it thinks is correct but the tool is too narrow for the resulting cut to match your expectations.
