So another route...Trying the DXF but i have a program Called DeskEngrave that was free as a simple text thing but i cant set my height on material some reason as a DXF - Anyone have any idea what setup would work or if this wont work for the Thermwoods? Heres the link to it if anyone has a second http://www.deskam.com/ it seems like it would be a super simple application for letters in DXF format?>??

Macro you have to creat layers for the tool paths.For example if you want to cut the letter I in a .75 thick material you would name the layer Outline Z0p75.See the control manual.http://order.ecabinetsystems.com/update ... Manual.htm.
