Converting text to outline

Postby andrew » Sun Sep 08, 2013 4:39 pm

From a QCAD user:

Could you tell me if there's a way to insert or convert text to an outline?
I want to use Qcad to output to a laser cutter to cut out letters.

- Select the text(s) to convert
- Modify - Explode

Note that we also have a CAM add-on for QCAD which produces for example G-Code from all entities including text outlines.
