Re: Reusable Nameplate Drawing

Just downloaded and installed the AppImage for v18 and repeated the test. Works perfectly!
I will continue to use v18 and continue my quest to master FreeCAD

Many thanks again

Re: Reusable Nameplate Drawing

I've tried a few variations. This time I opened shapeString-cb2, clicked on ShapeString, added another x to make the string 'More Textx', recalculate everything, selected Job and simulate. It doesn't simulate.

Re: Reusable Nameplate Drawing

Re: Reusable Nameplate Drawing

I have attached my file. What I did was to create the ShapeString with 'Test Text' at font 6 roughly centred both ways, and created the job and the engrave operation. Simulated and it looked fine. I then edited ShapeString to read 'More Text' at font 10, moved it left so the larger text would be cen...

Reusable Nameplate Drawing

I have created a drawing of a very simple nameplate with some text "Test Text". I then use the Path workbench to generate g-code to run on my router. This works. I would like to use this to create other nameplates with different text, and text size/position. If I edit the ShapeString where I defined...

Re: Newbie Having Problems

Changed to construction lines and the problem disappeared! Thank you.
