Engraving Text not Smooth


Almost all the parts manufactured in tool room require some engraving, like the jigs / fixtures need to be identified. Presently in the Planar Text and Contour Text the arcs (eg in O, S...) are segmented instead of smooth arc, this can be seen in the Nx when zoomed. Using this if the manufacturing operation is created the engraving on the CNC machine is also segmented.

Like to know how to overcome this issue.

The characters of the NX fonts are created by lines only, there are no arcs at all, so there is nothing you can change.

Re: Engraving Text not Smooth

The NX Fonts are line only, but not the other text fonts.

Try something like Ariel or Calibri and you should see a much smoother path.

Few years ago it was a same problem for me. Solution - I build my own character font, of course, from lines only, but - with tolerance 0.01 mm.
