    Scribing degree graduations on a bevel

    I'm trying to mark graduations on the bevelled edge of a disc? I'm making a degree vernier, how do I go about getting the lines on the bevel at the correct angle, the disc has a 60° bevel about .4 wide. The numbers would be good too but not essential.

    Ok, I figured out that I can project curves, the numbers have to be vectorized, but how do I then get rid of the original lines without deleting the lines on the part?

    Just takes time.Oddly the lines were projected to both sides of the disc so I manually editing out the original lines and text as well as the undesired parts and then used 3D engrave to generate the gcode. Is there a way tohave the engraving projected to only the first surface?

    Yes, you can do that by going to "Utilities" then select "Stitching" and the select "Unstitch Solids to Surfaces" or "Unstitch Surface from Solid", once you have done that you can create a new Layer for the Bevel Face, that way you can toggle it on/off as required.
    You can then create a new Layer for the original numbering so they can be toggled on/off as required, or, you can just go to front view, box select all the original numbering in one go and delete them if you don`t need them again, plenty options

    Thank you, that's much more simple than deleting the offending parts!
