I am trying to carve some text on a flat piece of aluminum.
Trying to make something like this:
That one was done using the mach text wizard.
Now, I have figured out how to use sprutcam to project text and a toolpath, and to actually make the cuts. However it constantly goes up-down by 0.00XX" on the Z when it cuts the individual letters. Is there a way to minimize that or to do a constant Z path? I just dont like the way the letters look after they are machined. Instead of a constant smooth arc like the wizard makes, its like they were chiseled out.
If I use a spring loaded engraver then that is eliminated. However is there any issue with the machine doing such tiny rapid movements for no reason? Does doing 1000+ lines of such small up-down movements introduce positional error in mach?
Is it the font that I am using? Or some other parameter I am missing? I really need to use the © and ™, and the text wizard doesn't have those.
