View Full Version : Newbie simple sign making

03-22-2008, 07:00 PM

I need to make a couple of signs using my CNC mills, but I need a CAM package that will allow me to do "V-Carving". I realize that V-Carve Pro would be the answer, but I'm only cutting two signs and looking for something more cost effective. Would the CUT 3D software work? Right now I use Rhino CAD and Rhino CAM and haven't done any "art" to date with the exception of simple engraving.

BTW, I want to make them from aluminum and have them chrome plated if that makes a difference. It's just one for me and one for a customer just for a couple of car shows this summer, no intentions of making anything else in the near future, that's why I'm shy about spending the money for V-Carve Pro.

Any input is appreciated, thanks,

You can probably find someone to create the code for you if you supply the drawing and feed and speed and other needed info.

Actually I did get Rhino Cam to work. I never could get the V-Carve engraving to work for crap, so just being curious, I went to MECH SOFTS website looking for info and noticed they had a service pack they released back in 2006, downloaded it and V-carve engraving works great! Problem solved, thanks.
