Single-line fonts in Rhino

July 17th, 2009 No comments

Two methods :)

1. Single-line fonts are the standard for laser cutting and CNC milling because they are more eficient to cut. Chris Chalmers provides a method of creating single-line labels by using pre-defined blocks instead of text.

How to:

  1. Import the rhino file with the text blocks into your file. 
  2. Run the script and it will simply turn the text you want to use into the appropriate block and place it.

(Right-click and save-as)
