Interior corner will maintain the radius of the bit. There is no way to maintin a 90 degree sharp angle for for interior corner. Please design the cut accordingly.

If you have more than one engraving depth, please add “_1″,” _2″, “_3”..etc after the layer name. Indicate your desired cut depth on a separate note and consult with a zund TA.

See the diagram below for different engraving options.

*For R type bit, the thickness of the engraved line is same as the diameter of the bit. For E type bit, the depth of the cut will directly influence the thickness of the engraving line.
*Hatch-Fill fills the area with parallel line pattern, Island-Fill fills the area with line around the exterior perimeter into the center.
