V carve font for lasers

I had an idea, but not sure how many other people would also want/use this.

In the non-Lazer CNC world, there is a way to make the carve in the shape of a V. The bottom is narrow and the top wider. To achieve this with a laser, it would have to be on par with a 3D image.

So the question is, doable? Interested?

There is a ramp setting in Rdworks

I was going to suggest Ramp. I hear rumors that a Ramp feature may be coming to LB some day…

I will play with the ramp settings on RDworks but I am sure it will be limited. Thanks for the suggestion.

Use a lens with a really short focal length - like 5mm.

Ramp mode in LightBurn is basically done, and in test. There are a couple of small bugs in the acceleration structure being used to speed it up, but I expect those to get ironed out relatively soon.


Since I have a “stamp” job to do, this can’t come soon enough. It’s been so long since I ran RDWorks, I actually forgot how much I hated it.

You know what they say: “Once you go LightBurn you can never return!”

Are they actually saying that now?

If they aren’t, they should.


I’m pretty much saying that now. I haven’t fired up RD in Months!
