12.2.23. Milling Text

Begin by creating a Text layer. There are two ways to do this: either create a contour when a guide layer is selected, or use the Add Toolpath Layer button in the Layers dialog.
 
If you use the first method, the layer type will be "No operation", and you will need to manually change it to a Text layer in the parameters dialog.
 
 
If you use the second method, the layer will automatically become a Text layer without needing any changes in the parameters.
 
 
Any contours you create on the Text layer will serve as baselines for the text. Only one text string can be defined per layer.
 
 
Under the Basic tab in the parameters for the Text layer, set the cutting depth, feeds, rpm, and select the tool to use for text milling.
 
Under the Text tab, define the text string, font, and size of the text.
 
 
Please note that the toolside of the contour affects the text's placement, and inverting the contour will result in inverted text.
 
 
In this example, both the toolside has been flipped, and the contour has been inverted.
