Re: How to create a job for multiple holes

Rather than select the individual faces of the holes, select the top face for the counterbore and the bottom face for the through-hole. Updated file attached. Thanks for your reply, your updated file does exactly what I want, but I still cannot reproduce it myself. I'm not sure what you mean by the...

Re: How to create a hole?

Thank you all for your replies. Yes reversing the pad did the trick. This means that my pad is now in negative Z, which seems a bit odd, but from the comments the Reversed property not working is a bug, so it should all be OK when that gets fixed. I also managed to use the MultiTransform tool as wel...

Re: Engraving Fonts

Thanks for the suggestion, simple and it works. The only downside is that I have to have 2 jobs, but I can live with that.

Just tried fonts 3 and 6 again and they work fine, don't know why I was getting an error previously.

Re: How to Pocket Cut a Logo

Gene it is very reassuring to see from your picture that it is possible! Yes I have probably used too many workbenches just trying to get it to work. I have just started again, tried to follow your notes and it looks good right to the end, then it will not simulate. Here is what I did - Part Design ...

Re: How to Pocket Cut a Logo

Thanks for the reply. What I am trying to do is to cut the logo so that it is recessed below the level of the plate. In Job > Data > Properties the Base is set to Base-Plate, I have changed that to Extrude, I assume that is what you meant by Model. Is that correct? I have then selected "Profile base...
