Font 2 DXF and G-Code 3.5

(~2400 Kb) $99
Create a text in any installed true type font or a single line font and save the result as dxf file or G-Code file. So you can plot the font to use it for engravings with your NC machine etc.

You only enter the text and click on "Save as DXF file...". The text will be saved as polygon line information in the DXF file.

The new version is able to create stencil fonts with apertures.

Or you can create G-Code and view a backplot of the created G-Code on the screen. The program can also import a G-Code or DXF file from your Harddisk and display the backplot.

With the single line vector fonts you can not only render the outline of True Type fonts but also the mid line of the characters.

Version 3 can output the G-Code for your NC machine directly. And this version can now create arcs not only line segments as output (G-Code commands G02 and G03).

New: now an Editor for single-line fonts is included. So you can design your own single-line fonts. You can let the program create a single-line font from any true type font and the edit the single-line font in the Editor. You can then create a DXF or G-Code output from your own single-line font.

The single-line fonts uses bezier curves. If you export them the bezier curves can be converted into arcs for your NC machine (G02 and G03).

The program ships with a couple of single line fonts.

Version 3.1 can now create a circular text output.

The program can now also create ESSI code, not only G-Code.

New: The program has now a "Designer" mode. In this mode you can create several text objects with different fonts and position these text objects. You can then export the result as DXF file. So you can use both, single line and outline fonts in one DXF file.

Version 3.5 now supports Unicode fonts. This means you can use Cyrillic script for example and all other characters. You can use all characters for the outline fonts and you can also create all characters in the midline font editor for the midline fonts. The midline font Arial now ships with a set of East European and Cyrillic characters.

To convert text and lines from a pdf file you need PDF 2 DXF.
If you want to recognize mid lines or outlines in pictures you need our software Paper/Picture to DXF.
If you only want to create stencil fonts you can also use our software Stencil Fonts which is like a lite version of Font 2 DXF and G-Code.

When I change "Line space" from 100 to 200, what does it do?

If the checkbox "Fill characters with horizontal lines" is active the line space is the distance between two lines.

The new version is able to create stencil fonts with apertures.

Now you can create a 3D Gravure. The Gravure will be rendered with a 45 degree angle starting at the character outlines and ending in the middle of the character. You can save the result as DXF file.
