True Type font converted to .dxf or g-code (freeware)

To convert True Type fonts to DXF or G Code try DeskEngrave which is free from www.deskam.com ,it will also place them on an arc.

The free Deskam product that Paul mentioned above is called DeskEngrave. Quoting from them: "..... is a basic True Type Font to Vector Converter that allows saving of G-Code or DXF files. It will convert a single line of text into the required toolpaths for engraving. It can create toolpaths aligned along an arc or straight line. It includes a TTF 'Stick Style' font - Stick40. It is being released to the CNC community free of charge."

Thanks very much Richy. Great, simple, effective program!

See the link in Gerald's post #2 in this thread.

Don't forget to "Set Parameters" when you use the program. Wonder how I knew that?
