    Hey everyone,
    I'd like to reproduce my personal handwriting in letters to send to clients and I think the CBeam can help me do this. Any ideas for adapting a pen mount that would help me write regular letters in handwriting font at a good speed? Any specific software you think would be best suited for this application? Speed is what I'm mostly concerned here, that's why I'm thinking on the CBeam over others. Any feedback/ideas welcome! :)

    There's probably a number of ways to do this. I'd try scaning the handwriting and converting it to gcode with Fengrave or finding a handwriting font and just type it in.

    Thanks! I prefer the second method you mentioned, finding a handwriting font (I could upload mine) and type it in the software. But I just wanna make sure the CBeam would provide good speed for this or should I look into another machine? Does F-engrave have mailmerge capabilities for more automation of the letter writing?
