2L’s PRO 3 CAD/CAM engraving software creates G-code programs for producing 2D data matrix barcodes on three- and four-axis CNC milling machines and multi-axis lathes. Using their own CNC equipment, users can mark directly on parts using the company’s standard engraving tools. According to the company, producing the barcodes and human-readable text directly on the CNC machines can reduce manufacturing costs by eliminating bottlenecks and avoiding the lengthy handling and setup time common to separate, standalone machines.
 
The fully featured engraving software is a simple-to-use drawing program that produces standard G-code NC files, which are compatible with virtually any CNC controller. Precise engraving layouts can be created using multiple fonts, drawn shapes, lines and incremental serial numbers. The engraving layouts can be precisely located using reference geometry or guidelines. The layout orientation, alignment, spacing and size of multiple instances of text can be controlled easily, the company says.
