    What software are you using to generate your g code? I use Fengrave to carve text. It is free and easy. I basically pick a font, type what I want add whatever graphic I want, and convert the document to a .bmp and Fengrave does the rest. have not tried the OpenBuilds cam yet, but others may be able to help.
