Engraving Tags, each with a different name

Postby SuperDaveOsbourn » Tue Mar 26, 2019 5:08 pm

Is there a utility, method, or other for filling in blanks with part numbers or names in VCarve Pro? Lets say I have 20 dog tags all with different data and I want to run them all as a matrix of them as one file to the cnc? Is there an easy way to do this? Macros? Im kind of thinking about software that comes with Word for mailing labels as an example.

Thanks in advance,

Super Dave

You want the "plate production" function. You'll find it documented in the reference manual. Here's a Youtube link that shows it in action:

Glad to help!

There's a treasure trove of information in both the reference manual and videos.
