Hey everyone. I’m a long time Rhino user, but first time poster. I have a text modeling question.
I’m making a mold using Rhino/RhinoCAM and cutting the letters out of styrofoam. Normally this is no problem, I just use the solid text object command, mirror the lettering, and create my toolpaths. However, this particular mold calls for V-groove lettering. That means instead of a flat bottom, the text needs to come to a point at its max height. Similar to v-carving, but I need to make the positive, since this is going into a mold.
So my question - Is there an easy way to model v-groove text in Rhino or am I going to have to go into each letter individually and create the v-carve look manually? I’ve started doing this as you can see from the attachment, but I wanted to see if there was another way before I invested too much time. Any tips on how to do this would be appreciated. Thanks.
