How do I center text in a blank?

From Shopbot Wiki

  • Work from the center on the machine as well as on the drawing. Use the center as the origin on the drawing, find the center of the material and locate the cutter over the center of the material. When you run the file using the FP command, select the "offset in 2D option" on the Part file fill in sheet. This option makes the Shopbot start from it's current location rather than starting from 0,0. If you do this frequently you can use a 60 degree V-Bit to cut a very shallow grid into the spoilboard. This makes it fairly simple to line up the cutter with the center of the workpiece.
