why this is cool:

  • you can use this to make your own DXFs. The SVG->DXF pipeline seems to work well on the Bristol Hackspace laser cutter.
  • you could link this program to a spreadsheet and automatically cut your own labels as you add new items.

you'll need:

then run from the command line

for a single label

./makeLabel.py --text "tape"

for a sheet, use a newline separated file of text

./makeLabel.py --file labelfile

full options listed by

./makeLabel.py --help
