Engraving ~360° on a cylinder

Postby KMoffett » Mon Jun 18, 2018 1:36 pm

Is there a way to truly "wrap" text engraving from Alibre Design all the way around a cylinder in the A axis. Currently AD projects the feature (text) onto the curved surface of the cylinder as a "shadow". This distorts the feature and only goes part way around, <180°. AlibreCAM's "4 axis Engraving" merely follows this distorted image. Basically I'm thinking of an A axis for Y axis swap. Am I missing something?
