samples of carbide create fonts.

Post by darkroastdave » Mon Oct 29, 2018 10:34 pm

Just wondering if anybody has seen or created list of CC fonts and what each one looks like. This would certainly be useful when selecting a font from that long list.

Carbide Create uses the fonts installed on your computer which the OS allows it access to.

Use a site such as https://wordmark.it/ or a utility program.

I'm a little late to the show but I'm sure lots of people already know this little trick using Carbide Create, but I didn't until I stumbled upon it by mistake. Found it frustrating to have hundreds of fonts available but not knowing what they look like until I select each one individually. I found that if I hover my mouse over the font type (without clicking) and using my mouse wheel, I can scroll through each font and the display will change automatically. Stop on the one you want and select it.

-Able to carry out rough cuts with smaller pieces and sharper cuts. Have the smaller piece Just cut the area that is left behind and not everything (including the air cut on the stuff that is already removed by a large piece). The finer bits are a direct bit or a V bit. So for example, I should be able to cut roughly 1/4 "bit, then maybe cut remaining stuff with a 1/8" and the final things with a 60 degree bit, if I want to make a wooden mark with a text and a graph. I'm going to like making wood / aluminum stamps or I can simply cut the texts in greater detail.
