View Full Version : Errors in True type when converting from vector NC to shopbot

04-13-2001, 08:51 AM
Has anyone experienced a problem when using vector 8 to generate true type fonts and then converting to NC Code and then to shopbot code.

The problem that I am having, is that the letters look fine in vector but after conversion to SB, some of the lines in the text are dropped out. For example my capital (L) was missing the long vertical line. If I created just an (L), with no other text though, it works fine. It seems it has something to do with the the last line in the letter before it Jogs to the next letter. I'm sure there is some simple solution but I am just learning the software and can't figure it out.

I would appreciate any suggestions.

Lonny, with Vector, you should not be converting to NC code then to Shopbot code. Generate the Shopbot code directly from Vector.

Place the Tru-Type letter outlines at the desired Z depth with Cut-Paste, then Connect-at-Z.(or use the Contour Tooling function to automatically do both the steps)
