    Default Can this shape be produced in wood on a CNC engraver?

    Hi,

    Consider these hand-carved letters in stone. See the form at the ends of the legs of the A and the top and bottom left of the B? Can that particular form be produced in a CNC router/engraver? Intuition tells me it is impossible with a rotating cutter, and yet I have seen that in wood. I suppose it is hand carved there as well, or can it be laser-engraved?

    V-shaped cutter. The variable line width is achieved by changing the depth of cut.

    Simple answer yes it can but not quite as sharp of a corner it's called Vcarve or engrave. Have a look at Vectric Vcarve pro Products - VCarve Pro

    Also Vectric Aspire & Arcam. This is pretty basic stuff for either software. There are others that will do it besides those already mentioned.

    All of the above, ASSUMING the groove angle is fixed!
    That means the grooves in most of the letters will have varying depths. But that would be expected for this font.

    Another piece of software capable of doing this is V-Engrave plugin for CamBam.
