If you do the smart paint the other way around - select the part at the part level & smartpaint black, then select the faces & smartpaint brass. When you subtract the letters, all of the newly-exposed faces will be black.

Question? Why do the letters from the "Negative Letters" come in upside down in relation to coordinate system (flipped in "Y" Axis)? If I were cutting Stencilsí these might be good. but they are not smooth letters they are constructed with segments and not smooth arcs. Dallas
I was involved in creating the "Negative Letters" catalog and at the time we didn't have a "smooth" option for the letters we made. It worked fine for those who wanted the catalog at that time though. They are all made with the IronPRO XT tool 3D Text. As you can see on the image below the newer version has more options than before and works really well. With the option Optimize Profile you'll get arcs instead of polylines.
