I need to include the ability to create text in a gadget. Specifically what I'm trying to do is something like Paul RownTree's CSV to 2D gadget to create both geometry and text in an Aspire file. The purpose of the text is to serve as a label for a set of vectors which can then be grouped together and nested and will appear in the printout of each sheet of the job. The text will allow the CNC operator to figure out the identity of each group (in this case, an MDF door) and put a label on the finished product.
On page 55 of the Vectric LUA documentation, it includes the following sentence for the CadObject class: "The objects derived from CadObject can include polylines, groups, text, bitmaps, toolpath previews etc." There is nowhere else in the documentation that references how you would create a text object.
Has anyone done this?f
Note - if this isn't possible, I can continue to use the Plate Production feature of Aspire to get the text into the file, which is what I do today, but would love to eliminate this step.
