How can I radius the text to match the radius of the circle below?
Carbide Create doesn’t have a feature for this.
It might work to use the new Circular Array feature:
to rotate a single letter around the circle six times, then manually edit each to be the correct letter — it will be uniform spacing, but the alternative would be to either drag and rotate each letter individually or to export to an SVG, then re-set the text and use a 3rd party tool such as Inkscape:
you’d then need to convert the text to geometry using Path | Object to Path.
Edit the text so that it’s a single letter:
Horizontally align it w/ the circles:
Select a circle and use the Move command to determine the location of its center:
Use Circular Array:
applying the center dimensions.
Change it to an arc:
Adjust the parameters until things line up as desired and one has the desired number of items:
Duplicate and align one of the circles w/ the original so that it can be enlarged so as to be larger than everything:
Select everything and rotate to finish the positioning:
Duplicate each letter and align the duplicate w/ the original:
edit the duplicate letter:
drag it into position relative to the original:
Delete the original:
Repeat for the other letters:
Select the letters and the outer circle and rotate as necessary:

Wow, @WillAdams ! I just never would have thought of that! I don’t know if it’s brilliant or insanely brilliant!
It should be mentioned that @robgrz mentioned that arrays on a curve is coming…so I would think attaching text to a curve can’t be far away!
Thank you very much!
