Engraving methods in NX CAM

Engraving methods in NX CAM

Today, I will demonstrate two ways of creating engraving operations in NX CAM.

To make most basic and simple engraved text, I use Planar Text and Contour Text operations. This operations uses NX Drafting Note object.
Second way to create engraving operations  is to use modeling curves. This way we can create more advanced shapes then just straight letters.

My videos will include voice over since now, so I encourage you to watch my video to see all the details:
