How to do Knockout text in lightburn?

Hi, I was wondering if anyone has been successful at doing a knockout text. It is where you lay a text on top of an already in place text and delete the path of where is sits, almost like a split monogram but the words inside have a somewhat bubble effect touching the text behind it.

Yes? :slight_smile: But we should to check to make sure. :wink:

It is best to also include an illustration of what you are after. Helps with clarity, and will speed in receiving useful response.

That’s perfect, exactly what I was asking! I am wanting for the offset to go in the opposite direction though so would I do inward instead of outward?

Yes. And it is fun to try things, knowing you can always hit ‘Undo’ (Ctrl + Z Win - ⌘ + Z Mac) and ‘Redo’ (Ctrl + Shift + Z Win - ⌘ + Shift + Z Mac). :slight_smile:

I DID IT!!! Thank you!!! You’re amazing!!!

Hey, there you go! Nice job. Show the final product when you can. :slight_smile:

Thanks for this. I had a go also.

I will flip the file next time - I was engraving the back!
