Gravographs 98


Recommended Posts

Ill try and talk you through -

 

on screen you have the type for the job,

(I usually have a dot at the top of text to centralise it all)

then a dot at the bottom of it all.

 

click the hand on the left - turn to manual mode

 

then the selection arrow.

 

click engrave by colour

 

the first dot leave black.

the main text highlight all and click the next colour after black and double click it ( this turns that text to that colour)

 

then the dot at the bottom of all text highlight it by clicking it then use the colour at bottom of your colour selection (say red) and double click that - there is a button called properties - click it - tool base, and make the red colour a different tool, this will make the computer realise you have to use a different tool and then will stop allowing you to take the tankard out 

when you get to machining you will see three colours of tool. you need to click each one and turn them to not spin as normal then send the job

do a dummy run the first time to check.

 

 solving your problem of touching the handle.

I hope this makes sense.

Go to selection mode,

pull your curser down the left hand side of the screen over the small symbols (SLOWLY),

it should say (highlighted in brackets) "engrave by colour"

double click on this.

then you have the line of colours available,

then highlight the text and double click on the "engrave by colour" the Blue one for example, then off click on the main screen and that particular text should now be 'Blue'

and as long as your tool database ha the correct tool for the pause it will stop automatically after it has engraved your text - thus allowing you to take out your tankard :)
