This looks great, I recently did a CNC workshop at our local makerspace. Do you use Vectric Aspire ?

Hi there,
No I tried a trial version of vectric a few years back but reverted to Edgecam simply due to experience with it. Using fusion360 now for modelling so may try their cam software..

Yes Richie, I have 1.6mm or 2.4mm width t-slot cutters to do that, in this case 1.6mm which I think is the norm..

Richie,

Font worked a treat, not sure if avi files work here, but on attached to give you an idea... Now I just need to try it on the real thing... (could do with your preferred width too)...

I'm in work tonight but I'd say about 2.5 inches high and the width proportioned to that height. I think the total plexiglass width is 500mm so as long as it's not wider than 400mm should be fine..

No, it's programmed in Edgecam as text using your font. Always looks good on the screen though, I need to give the plexi a go...

I've just found this. I was chatting to another guy on facebook who was interested in the work but all has gone quiet now..
The rich's bit was to just be in the normal joined up word font..
