I'm struggling with engraving text on my R7. Cutting shapes works great. My workflow is to create a design in Inkscape; create toolpaths in MakerCAM; and send to TinyG via Chilipeppr. I want to use a V-bit, and make single stroked lettering. The attached image shows a path which engraves around each letter. The font (in Inkscape) is called "engrave" and appears single stroked on the screen. Is there anyway to do this?
Found in another forum that Inkscape has built in Hershey font rendering. Its under extensions, & there are about 20 fonts. The renderings generate vector based text which engraves correctly via a v router bit.
