Re: Editing an SVG to clean it up

This is a follow-up to my own post. I still have not figured out how to do this, however, I have found a better SVG image that does not present this problem. So, my issue is resolved.

Editing an SVG to clean it up

I am wondering if anyone can help me edit an SVG file to clean it up. In fact the file is the SVG of the U.S. Navy logo. There are nodes that need to be joined and some that need to be deleted. How to describe this: First, imagine you have two half circles, one inside the other, and that they are jo...

Official United States Navy Logo

Does anyone know where I can find a top notch official United States Navy Logo SVG file that I can bring in to my Carbide Create software? I have found several such images, but when I run the simulation the results are less than stunning. So far the best SVG file I have found, when I run the simulat...

General V carve question/probelm

Hi: I am wondering if anyone can shed some light on a problem I am having with a V carve. There are times I carve stars into things and it seems that the starts almost never come out the same. I cannot figure out why. I use the same 60 degree V bit. As far as I can tell, which to be honest as a newb...

Advice on carving image

I want to cut an image using a 30 V carve bit. When I run this in simulation mode 95% of it looks ok, but the rest not so good. I am hoping that someone else might run this in simulation mode and offer some advice on how to clean this up. You will note in particular at the bottom of the image there ...

Re: Fonts

Hey ya"ll my son, an EE, fixed my problem. I installed the font, but apparently I needed to install it for "all users" rather than simply clicking the install button. So, I am up an running. Sorry to have bothered ya'll.

Thanks,

Fonts

There is a font I would like to use, it is already installed on my computer, but I cannot find it in the fonts in my Carbide Create. How can I fix this?

Thanks

Plaque Making

I am wondering if any of you out there who have experience at sign or plaque making can offer some advice. I've been trying to make a small 8.5 x 11 plaque for over a month and am having so many problems I hardly know where to begin. However, two of my biggest problems are: 1) Lettering - I've been ...

Re: Z Axis retraction

Thanks so much for your reply. First, let me begin by saying that in the file I have the retract height at .21 as I have all of my other files and if I run them the router retracts as it should. Second, a few days ago I installed the Carbide 3D bit setter and since then the Z axis does retract. Toda...

Re: Z Axis retraction

This is an addition to my original post. I attempted to run an old file that I had cut before. When I ran that file the router retracted just as it should. Why the difference? It's got to be in the file. So what changes have I made. I installed the most current Carbide create and Motion files (both ...
