Hi Guys, I have a problem with V-Bits to engraving letters (Please look at attachment ).
I using ArtCam 2008 and my bit is 32mm 90 degree.

My question.
Is my V-Bit is big!? or there have special fonts for V-Bit engraving to make it professional!?

Thanks :)

I am having a hard time determining on my little phone screen, is the letter above the surface or v carved into the surface?

If V carved into the surface, I would try a 60 degree bit or a different font. And see if it improves.

A v carved toolpath runs in between the lines of the font, varying the depth to adjust for width and leave the sharp points.

Doug I think that might be carved in plastic and you are looking at it from the backside. The circled areas are where the bit dived into the plastic.

Actually we would need to see the actual font you used. This could be how it should look if the font has ball ends so we need more information on the font.

Another thing to consider is the use of Artcam 2008 and if there was a problem with v-carving in that release. Were you using the latest version of 2008?
