I am looking for some assistance in making neon signs using the rope light.
I have tried over and over again to set the width of a font such as “Backstay”, I believe it’s a single line font and tried using the offset tool. I have been able to create an outside offset to make the bubble shape but I cannot for the life of me set an exact width in millimeters so I can then place the neon rope into the slot. The neon silicon rope I have comes in 4mm width and 6mm width approx.
I’d like to be able to set the slot width of the font an easy way.
I have seen a lot of videos of people making these signs but I can’t find anyone that shows how it can be done.
I have attached a photo for reference to what I want to do.
