  • Single or multiple lines of text may be entered into the program as a single layer with one font.
  • Easily modify the font, size, depth of engraving, feed rates, and origin location..
  • Output CNC G-code is saved as a text file (.nc) that may be edited with notepad or other text editor.
  • G-code programs only include only G0 and G1 moves. Using only G0 and G1 moves ensures CNC control compatibility, no other nc codes are necessary for engraving.
  • One 2L Single Line Stick Type Engraving Font is also included.
  • The PRO Light Version of the Software is not sold separately.

2L PRO 1 Engraving Software Program - Details:

Includes all the functionality of the PRO Light Engraving Software Program, PLUS…

  • Perform 3 Axis Engraving.
  • Creates detailed engraving layouts and drawings and produces standard G-code nc files quickly and simply.
  • Creates one output CNC G-code program (.nc file) for multiple items with multiple fonts, sizes, imported image files (logos, drawings), drawn items (shapes – circles, rectangles, straight lines), and incremental serial numbers.
  • Output CNC G-code is saved as a text file that may be edited with Notepad or other text editors.
  • Engrave text, lines, numbers, characters.
  • Create Incrementing Serial Numbers.
  • Engrave logos, Jpeg, Gif, Dxf Files.
  • Import JPG, BMP, and GIF bitmap images (photos) and convert them into lines (vectors) which can be engraved. The Engraving Software automatically places a cutting tool path on the lines.
  • Edit imported JPG, BMP, and GIF bitmap images to improve the finished look of the engraving.
  • Perform pocketing and reverse pocketing (reverse engraving), spiral or back and forth.
  • Mirror text horizontally and vertically.
  • Engrave on a radius or incline.
  • Control text orientation, alignment, spacing, and size on multiple instances of text.
  • Use 2L Single Line Fonts or any True Type Font installed on your computer and converts them into standard G-code.
  • Engrave at a Constant Depth on an Imported 3D Surface. Project the engraving onto a surface of an imported 3D model. This creates an engraving that maintains a constant depth in relation to a 3D model. Place and modify complex geometry onto a 3D surface in just a few steps.
  • Functions as a drawing program. Draw shapes, (circles, rectangles, etc.) freehand lines, and straight lines. There is no need for an external drawing program.
  • Image trace feature allows importing and editing any photo images (jpg, bmp, gif formats). Converts image into lines and points which can be engraved. Also imports dxf files.
  • Use guidelines, any drawn objects, or imported image files as reference geometry to precisely locate text or other objects to be engraved.
  • Monitor engraving cycle times.  Cycle Time Monitor automatically calculates the amount of time it will take to perform the engraving job. The effect of changing font styles, sizes, and feedrates can be seen instantly to help reduce cycle times.
  • Creates Absolute (G90) and Incremental (G91) G-code output (3 Axis – XYZ). The G-code programs use only G0 and G1 moves to ensure CNC control compatibility.
  • Includes eleven (11) 2L Single Line Stick Fonts.  Single Line Fonts are used for small engraving applications, and to reduce engraving cycle times.

2L PRO Programs operate on Microsoft Windows® 7, 8, 10, XP, and Vista.

  • Creates G-code on the face of a part on a rotary axis lathe with polar interpolation.
  • Use with rotating live spindles or for engraving with a Spring Loaded Engraving Tool.
  • The program automatically displays the cylinder size unrolled so it is easy to create layouts to determine how the engraving will fit on your workpiece.
  • The rotary axis letter is easily modified in the output G-code depending on your cnc machine (any letter can be used – A, B, C, H, U, V, W, etc.).
