Please forgive what might be a basic question but my searches haven’t turned up an answer.
I am trying to form text-letters into an STL file that I will export and send to a computer controlled router. With them I will be forming both standard and mirror 3D versions of the letters to carve out inlays for contrasting wood.
In order for the inlay to match the receiving grooves both pieces must have precisely cut 45 degree slopes expanding away (in the -Z direction) from the letters in the X-Y plane. I’m sure there must be a way to form the sloping depth using the text geometry features (taper/bevel) but I’m not sure how to specify the exact angle I need.
Can someone kindly point out the method and a short summary of the steps I should be using?
