It's important to note that your metal requires to fit in your Manufacturer, and that means it can not be extremely thick, as it needs to fit on a floor covering and also under the inscription tool. My research reveals that the thickest metal you can dependably etch on is 14 gauge, which is 5/64th or.078 of an inch. That's LESS than 1/8th of an inch. If you go for something in between 1/16th and 1/8th of an inch, you ought to be best on target. Naturally, that suggests no corrugated metals or metals with other indents or alleviations.

Action 1: Get my Inscription Templates.

This action is optional, yet it's actually valuable to have a layout of what you're inscribing so you can properly size it. I have actually made an engraving design template of the tasks I etched in this tutorial, yet you can additionally just use the Forming device in Cricut to make circles, ovals, squares, as well as rectangular shapes in the form of your engraving blank.

Step 2: Develop or Discover a Layout For Your Engraving Space.

If you 'd like to simply place message on your metal pet tag, charm, or bracelet, it's easy! Click the Text tool, kind the text you wish to show up, and also pick a font style.

Now resize the text to fit the etching blank you intend to utilize. Note that you may intend to transform the letter spacing so the letters are closer with each other, particularly if you select a cursive font as I did. If you need better control over your text, select it, click Even more, Advanced, Ungroup to Letters, and after that you can by hand move each letter right into location until you more than happy (when you're done, make sure to select every one of those letters and also click Connect).

Step 3: Change Your Style Linetype to Inscribe (as well as Conceal your Design Templates).

When you have a layout made, make certain it is all connected with itself and afterwards most likely to the Linetype food selection and change it to "Inscribe.".

You need to HIDE the design template so the ONLY thing you see is the layout you wish to place on your etching space. To conceal a layer, choose it and click the Eye icon beside its name in the layer panel left wing.
