Trying to save myself a little time.

Is there a program that I can type words into, and it will make them cut ready? So I dont have to change the letters with insides, like O's, P's etc.

Thanks for your time.

You might want to give Stencil Font a try http://www.cadkas.de/stencil-fonts.php. It will set up the bridges in the A,O,P,B.... Free download, works with all fonts. It is easy to use and is adjustable for different size bridges. Saves the letters as DXF file, works pretty well.

Looks like a nice program! Thanks for sharing!

Do you get options of different bridge styles?

No, but you can play with the width and location.

DeskEngrave. There's a free version that's limited but still useful. Uses whatever font you have in the Font folder. Exports directly to DXF.
