Text offsetting
« on: February 29, 2008, 05:31:01 PM »
Can anyone help me out with this problem.
I am using V,X and I to create the roman numerals on a clock dial.
Using Times New Roman font in LC I can drag the letters (approx 5/8 in tall) into a frame, select them and offset to the inside so all raised material is removed from inside the letter by the 0.75mm cutter.  They will later be filled with wax.
However if I load the clockface DXF into LazyCam then drag the letters 'onto' the clockface dxf I can select them but offsetting the cut on the inside does not work, no code being generated,
Doubling the scale or reducing cutter size does not help either.
Has anyone overcome  this difficulty or can see a way to pocket the letters.

I have got this sorted. It was my confusion about cutter size and units.
