Dr. Engrave is a program for plate engraving that runs under Windows.
Main Features of Dr. Engrave
Support for multiple plates
You can arrange a number of plates with the same design within the engraver’s cutting area. This makes it possible to make many plates efficiently.
You can make a master plate, then make the settings for the number of plates laid out and their spacing. You can also divide a single plate.
Import text files
Text files with comma- or tab-separated values can be imported into text boxes. This lets you make use of files made using a spreadsheet or a database that can export data in text format.
Flat-drag machining can be performed for the center of text and graphics.
Image contours can be extracted and converted to line segments. Images can be entered by importing them from a TWAIN-compliant image scanner connected to the host computer, or by importing an image file saved in bitmap (BMP) format.
You can also register a converted graphic as a symbol.
Generation of stroke characters Characters with no line width (i.e., stroke characters) can be generated automatically from TrueType font characters. You can use such generated stroke fonts in Dr. Engrave in the same way as other fonts registered with Windows. (However, you can’t use them with other programs.) Text that has been changed to stroke characters can be engraved more rapidly than outline fonts, because the characters are made up of fewer line segments. You can also clean up such automatically generated stroke characters (stroke-character edit function).
You can extract and display the contours of characters (for TrueType fonts).
You can set characters (TrueType fonts) to the desired width (weight). You can create rectangles, circles, stars, polygons (polyline), and other graphics. Objects can be positioned with precision (snap-to-grid feature).
