I'm looking for software able to produce code to engrave text, numbers on the cylindrical surface. I know mastercam can do it, but my budget is tight. Maybe someone know some software able to wrap X,Y surface around the cylinder to make it X,Y and Z, I don't have c-axis available. Thanks a lot for any help.
How are you going to rotate the cylinder? Or do you propose to confine the engraving to a certain number of degrees to top dead center?
