I have level 3 of the software and am attempting to engrave text on a radius. I am trying to engrave text lengthwise along a 1.5" diameter tube. I thought I should be able to create the text (with nc contours) and then do a goround on the text applying a Z-Profile that I created. I am using a simple font and without the Z everything seems OK but once I apply the z-profile, it just goes to heck. It seems to be cutting the depth of the profile (which is basically a section of a 1.5" diameter circle) but I only want it to cut .005 deep. Could anyone tell me how to do this?
Edited to also ask - what is a good cutter to use to do this? The engraving will be about 1/16 high and .005 deep and I am using a mini mill.
