Sequential numbering for placards

Postby rbmgf7 » Wed May 23, 2018 11:15 am

Wondering if anyone has a tip on how to generate sequential numbers. I had someone ask if I could cut door numbers, from one to two hundred, with the possibility of having the company logo on the placard.

I know the hard way to do it but was wondering if anyone has an easier solution.

I used CorelDraw8 and Fusion360.

I don't think 8 has a merge file option.

If it does you make a template with the logo on it then then link it to a database, in this case an Excel spreadsheet. In Excel you start a numbering sequence and finish it with a copy & special paste command. Hit merge and the magic happens. Sounds Simple Right?

There may be a sequential numbering plugin for CorelDraw. Have a look at this one says it does automatic numbering and uses a database ... lestool-2/

It will require some hand editing of a base file but there are plenty of Gcode subroutines floating around for generating sequential numbering.
