Tools for CNC Programmers
This program converts text to G-Code using a single stroke font. There are many cases where this is preferable to using True Type fonts particularly when the lettering needs to be fairly small.
To use this program simply fill in the settings for the text to convert and the G-Code output then click "Save as G-Code" or "Save as DXF". The GCode header and footer settings can contain any additional program blocks that may be required by your particular control.
Additional fonts can be added any time and can be easily created using any text editor.
