    Eddie, Is there an easy way to make the gap between the top 5 characters and the C a little bigger ? Ive run a program again through the machine with a smaller cut but would like a bit of a bigger gap.

    I tried to edit it but im a little lost as im new to CAD etc !!

    If when in CAD you select the top 5 characters by left clicking just to the bottom right of the 5 characters and then stretch the selection rectangle round all 5 characters you can then select the move command and if you have F8 pressed (ortho mode) you can then move them (pick any point as the reference point) up at 90 to the C.....

    What Neil said but I do it in CamBam using the same method.
    If you tell me how much gap I can change it for you.

    I like these ones because they work from small to large and have almost zero point width;
    There's a 60deg and 90deg.

    Edit: Sorry I just realised I use these for wood and you are cutting metal, don't know if they are for metal.

    Also try these;

    Cheers Eddy :-)

    I will have a practice at this but if you don't mind, that would be great. Thanks !! This job ive been promising to do for a guy for ages.
    As you can see from the new pic Im just about there. Its a balance between having a decent cut I guess and not encroaching on any other line.

    I think a 2mm gap will give me the gap and I will still have enough room for when i machine the profiles in the slots.

    Does that make any sense ?
