TextMilling is used to create text signs and engravings with different fonts and appearances. The main area of application is to create NC programs (G code) for milling centers and other types of industrial machines. It was developed with the CNC industry in mind but the simple user interface also makes it suitable for hobby level.
The given text will be placed in the desired location, where it can be flipped, put on a bow with the desired angle and size. When satisfied with the result , you can choose to create an NC program that is directly transferable to the CNC-machine or a DXF file that can be read into CAD/CAM for further processing.
TextMilling includes post processors for the most common control systems. Our post processors can be opened and edited with a standard text editor. If you are not satisfied with the post processors that are included, please send us an email. We have developed a variety of post processors for different customers specific needs, including engraving in lathe with driven tools. Postprocessors for Fanuc, Heidenhain, Siemens, Haas and GRBL are included in standard install.
Text Milling supports True Type Font (TTF) and Open Type Font (OTF), which is the standard font format for Windows and most other operating systems. We have also included lots of fonts specially adapted for engraving. Several of these are of the "single line" type, which makes them ideal for engraving article numbers etc.
When creating a text ,it is possible to make a number of processing parameters such as tool number, contour depth, feed etc. . These settings can be specified for each item. This means that it is possible to specify different depths or feeds for different items.
