When I use the default text on a sheet metal surface and save it as a .DXF file to be used on an engraver, the letters are hollow, only engraving the outline of the letter. How can I get the font to be filled? I'm running version 2013, SP3.0
You might accomplish it like the attached .prt file. I used an extruded cut at .02in. to provide minimal depth and then added color to it.
This was done on SW 2013, sp.3, EDU version.
Thanks Rich. I tried that and it looks fine in Solidworks but the engraving software doesn't recognize color.
Are you looking for a toolpath generator? If you need a 2D .dxf for your engraver, all you'll get from SW is the outline. Your engraver software should generate the toolpath.
