@John_Brock: The CDM_NC.shx font is something native to AutoCAD, I believe. Looks a bit like arial when it is done with the router. What I'm proposing for future updates/versions is a tool that will allow a user convert text to something CNC friendly. Another option might be to somehow link to the font list within AutoCAD, and allow the user to specify the font that AutoCAD uses. This could possible be achieved through the DWG export options dialog box. I recognize that may not be possible as Rhino exports a generic dwg, does it not?
@carvecream: I've done quite a lot of searching online, and found one called CNC_vector, which seemed promising. But alas, it was unreadable on the screen in Rhino, and still treated as an outline of letters. The search for a workaround or some other hack will continue. I've even considered writing a script of some sort to accomplish what I need, but the last thing I want to do when I get home from work is start coding for something I will only use at work!
@dan: I'll give it a shot and report back.
Thanks all for your responses. If I have success with anything, I will be sure to share.
