new to soild edge and have watched almost every you tube video trying to figure out how to insert text in my 2d draftings. Have a new cnc plasma table and want to make signs. I use the text profile button and it has a border around my text and i cant trim it into my drafting? any help please?
The easiest way I know of, is to save as DXF or DWG format, open that [check the import options to ensure 1:1 scale, before clicking open...] file, then right-click on the text to "un-block" the text groups, select the unwanted boarder[s], delete.....save and your done!
Not sure the reason the boarders HAVE to be shown in Solid Edge. It has been an annoyance for many years.....further, I do wish there was an option to explode any system generated text.
