We are currently looking for a way to insert text to a SolidWorks sheetmetal part in the form of a single line 6 digit number which we use as an internal part number. We also utilize punch press nesting software. Our goal is to be able to insert a 6 digit number on the part so it can be tooled in our nesting software using scribe tooling on an Amada punch press. I have tried different things I found in the forums but nothing has worked so far. I have tried regular text but this result in our tooling wanting to tool fit the perimeter of the number. I tried single line font but I’m not able to extrude or cut it so our nesting software will not recognize it. Is there a way to cut or extrude a single line font in Solidworks?
We are currently using SolidWorks 2013. Our nesting software is by Amada.
Would appreciate any help I could get on this one.
