I am cutting out words for a business…my first order! Whoop! Anyway, I will cut them out and then spray paint gold. My question is how to avoid issues when the interior of my letters are cutting out. I am a newbie and have learned a lot but have so much to learn. I am attaching the file. Also, if any of you experts see changes that I need to make on my toolpaths…I am willing to take any advice. In went with contouring but still learning so much. usted cut out.c2d (276.6 KB)
I am using a Shapeoko HDM and stock is HDM . It came out fine but the interior letters will need a little sanding so smooth. Thank you so much.
We already cleaned in up but the center of the d in the two loops the s center. The e did fine. But it sort of broke off on the very last move and tore out a tiny section of board. Very small and able to sand down. I’m sorry I didn’t take a pic. Also. I had my max depth too high but learned from that
. I know I have read somewhere that I need a separate tool path possibly for the interior parts of letters. I just did not know if I needed to change the bit and if that needed to be done first or last. Once again I am open to any and all suggestions since I am a newbie.
