Use the Contour Text operation or the Fixed Contour drive method Text to engrave drafting text, such as part numbers and mold cavity ID numbers, directly on a contoured surface. The operation is fully associative to the drafting text. Simply regenerate the operation to update the tool path. The tool path for the operation: Has one pass. Follows the font strokes of the drafting text object. Has a tool position of On .
Text engraving on a contour
Result Note: All the relevant drive parameters are available on the operation's top level dialog box. To cut below the part surface, either enter a negative value for Part Stock , or enter a positive value for Text Depth and enter 0 for Part Stock . You can find Text Depth on the operation's main dialog box, or on the Cutting Parameters dialog box. For Contour Text , you should use a ball mill. Do not enter a text depth greater than the radius of the ball. In surface contouring, tool paths are not reliable if the negative floor stock ( Part Stock - Text Depth ) exceeds the lower radius of the tool. The software provides you with a warning of this situation. Where do I find it? Application | Manufacturing
