« on: September 26, 2017, 11:10:10 AM »
Hi, I am trying to make a simple cut out in wood.....4x12 that i will use as a template....I have use the V-Carve Option, the Inlet Option. When I save its as a DXF...Convert in Lazycam to a Tap...Bring in Mach 3.....All I get is an "Empty" box with nothing in the middle to carve out..

Getting frustrated

General Mach Discussion / Single Line Cut for Plates
« on: September 19, 2017, 10:23:40 AM »
Hi...Trying to figure out if there is a way to have engraver only make one cut...like a single line font...Cut each letter only once...not each side of the letter...Hope I am Making Sense.... On our Dahlgren...If we use a single line font...it only makes one stroke/pass...like down the middle...
not ...The left side if the "I"...The Right Side of the "I"....ect
