    Maybe you thought magic could be used?

    Since AutoCAD does not have a built in command that will do the job in one click then the only other alternative is a custom lisp routine. Until then you're faced with doing it manually.

    A good template will get most of the job done.

    Set it up so that you don't have to use the backwards option in the style.

    Once that is done, you open the file, type the information, explode, extrude, and export.

    The last three steps could probably be coded but how much time would that really save? Would it affect how much work you get done in a day?

    Indeed, i was thinking about using some kind of a macro. I m going to try that. I keep you guys posted. Tanx for the input!

    Just extruding and exporting / saving in .stl doesn't take time and isn't worth the pain of involving lisp probably.

    Robdraw, can you be a little more specific on setting up the template without involving any backwards style? Like a template that mirrors everything by default?

    Make sure MIRRTEXT is set to 1 and mirror the text. While you edit the text, it will appear normal.
