Engrave issue

First time using engrave....on a finished part.

In manufacture

set up binding top

Toolpath T10 engrave2

I selected the letters, all highlighted, oked it

but it did not pick up the last letter i.....I have another i it did pickup...

I simulated it and all the other letters appeared to cut.

I then tried to select the bottom contour of the last i  and it worked.

So which is it select dilegently select bottom contours.....or just select letters.

That's a curved surface so a 2D toolpath like Engrave will cut each letter differently as it's going to a consistent depth but because of the curve will look different

Trace would be the toolpath to use as it will cut along the variable Z level, but it doesn't work well in my experience outside of Line Fonts as with that kind of font it will only cut outlines

yeah was going for the outlines

anyway ill try trace

worked perfect select bottom of contour like always......

I wonder why it is not in 3d catagory rather than 2d catagory.....i might have even picked it.
