Any PC with a SCSI card has a SCSI utility you can go into at boot up and see all of the SCSI ID's. On the Mac I think Adaptec had a utility for that from the Mac GUI. Thinking either Mac OS 8 or 9.

Don't they? I seem to recall there being a specific program (NOT app) that would scan all the channels in use, so you'd know which were left free before chaining another device & getting a SCSI error. OS 7 maybe?

Does the engraver have a program for that?
very interesting, let us know what you find out!

sadly, we are the engraver... using the Zund, hence the need for the single center line stroke.

We are using OptiScout with our Colex Sharpcut and engrave using the milling and hatching settings.

So we would use an outline of the type. In OptiScout set it up to use the router defined with the diameter of the bit we're using, and set up the rest with milling and hatching.

Zunds being the Cadillacs of cutters surely has something of the sort.

I'm not sure which version they changed it because I stopped updating after this, but they had made it so you couldn't set "number of recent fonts" to "0" in prefs and now it's 0-15.
