Todays project is a simple dimensional washroom sign. The purpose of posting it here is to show off a new feature of the newest version of EnRoute (6) =. This feature is that each function has a video attached to it. This is a huge plus for those learning the program or simply expanding their capabilities. I was never one to read manuals – especially these days when it is available only onscreen. It’s just too clumsy for my test. But this new feature of EnRoute 6 allows you to simply right click on the function and a video pops up explaining it in detail. How easy is that!
The washroom is marked with both a man and woman symbol which will be raised and have a sandblasted wood background. They are just under 12″ in each direction. I started with the vectors created in EnRoute.
Now I know how to make a relief but if you didn’t you would right click on the create a relief icon and a short movie would pop up.
Then with the new found knowledge it was time to put it into action. I then used that same tool by selecting both the base relief and the figures and raised it 0.4″ to pop up the characters on the sign.
Once I was familiar with how to do the operation (by watching the movie) I performed the operation. This finished off the design of the sign making it ready to tool path and send off to the MultiCam.
