I use solid edge 2d drafting for our cnc plasma table at work, and I am trying to figure out how to remove the square box /border around any text or bitmap images I use. I can't "trim" or delete it, because selecting the box selects the entire text. It treats it as one feature to remove. How can I get around this? I don't want a box around text every time I do it. Thanks,
I never could find a way to do it without exporting to .dxf file, and then open and unblock the item, allowing me to remove the border. Then I would use the .dxf in the CNC software. Some CNC software already has the ability to unblock as well.
this is a very easy task.
After selecting the textbox (and it is similar for pictures) look to the smart ribbon bar and find the icon for the "Border".
Unselect the border and the rectangle will be away, or click it again, what will show it again.
You are using a text profile from the sketching tab under insert, while the others in their answers are using plain text from the annotations. Below red arrow shows what they are using and blue is where you are.
If turning off the border in the properties dialog doesn't remove the border then the border is probably part of the image itself. You'd have to edit the image and remove it.
So I got the border removed....but the .png doesn't show up in sheetcam for some reason (the text will). Any idea what settings I need to change so it will also show up in cam software?
