Hit a wall?

Post by TequilaTony »

I'm automating a process with LUA script in a gadget and think I have just hit a wall. After reading through the API docs, I see no way to draw text. Does that API not support this?

Thanks,
Tony

I did not originally see that thread. Thanks for replying.

It's a shame that the LUA API does not cover this. We are a sign manufacturer and design 6 - 20 signs/day. I was hoping to help automate this process to some degree.

Hi There,

I write full lines of test with my gadget. I use it to ID parts. I have a laser on my mill.
