Good use of the undocumented height-map feature in Easel! I'm going to cut some this weekend.

Thanks John! Yeah, any work that I can have the X-Carve do, that. I don't have to, is good. :)

Hello, John, Where did you find info about the height-map feature? What is it exactly?

thanks for this! made a few of them so far. wondering, what size bit do you use? when I have it on 1/8" it says bit is too large and I seem to get it with a 1/16" bit also, I still cut it anyways but I'm not sure if I'm missing any detail or something. I'm new lol

You are welcome Casey. I believe that when I carve them I use a 1/8" bit and just ignore the message because it is most likely to do with the gradient. If it still comes out ok then I wouldn't worry about it.

Hi, may I know how was the gradient saved into the svg file?

Jeremy Richards
Hi Seamus, The gradient is actually a bunch of depth rectangles in succession creating a stepped version of a gradient effect. Check out the forums for more info, where I and others discuss how to achieve the effect.

Sorry I meant an arc.

Sorry Kevin, I don't think it does, but InkScape or Illustrator or other vector apps do and you can import an svg into Easel if that helps.

Wish I could find someone with an open version of Illustrator I could get for my Mac or even Pc would work .

Hi Robert, Try InkScape. It is probably what you are looking for.

This could be for multiple reasons Bob, the waist board might not be level or maybe tabs are enabled on the outline cutout... can you post a pic on the forum? Tag me in the post if you do.
