@B-26 I tried to post an svg with fonts but the text didn’t show up. I think I downloaded the font for the project. It’s called Sacramento and is set to 20pt.
Here’s an svg with paths. The text is about 16mm tall with the curve.
I used Inkscape for this, with the text functions it has. It allows you to wrap text on a path so I created a circle and placed it on there to get the curvature.
With Inkscape it’s important to set Preferences–>Tools “Bounding Box to Use” to “Geometric Bounding Box” This ensures sizing is based on an invisible line in the center of your paths so your measurements are accurate.
Then I Save a Copy as a dxf and import the dxf into Estlcam.
I experimented with a few methods for finishing but the final one that worked the best was:
- Clear Varnish. 1 or 2 coats
- Spray paint.
- Sand lightly to get excess paint off
- Varnish again.
I had some bleed still. I didn’t have as much on another coaster that used a different ply. Not sure what the difference was but I’m assuming it’s because the top layer was a different type of wood.
