Currently designing an item that requires numbers recessed into the body, with numbers of another colour inserted into them, and likely glued in.
I have drafted it up with 3D text with a height of 20mm and a -2mm extrusion. This is fine, it is the number inserts themselves that I am struggling with.
How do I scale the numbers down so that when printed they fit in the numbers recessed into the body?
So far I have established that a height of 1.8mm will fit snug and level once inserted, but I cant scale the overall design down to make it fit. I have tried reducing the overall size but while the text is smaller it is smaller in the wrong dimensions.
For example. How do I make the outside diameter of the 9 smaller and the inside diameter larger, allowing it to fit into the original 20mm number 9, shown below.
I realise I can go through each number and manually draw the required lines in the right place but this will be very tedious!
Any assistance would be much appreciated and apologies if this has been asked previously, I have searched but not found anything.
