Use the WRITE wizard to generate the Gcode.

I'm using the WRITE Wizard, are you sure I can do the "B" beta symbol character on that "write" wizard ?

or can I use any Symbol Font ? on that "write" ?

thank you

I don't think you can do that as I have never actually seen the β character in any of the write wizard fonts.

It should be available in most CAD/CAM programs, that would perhaps be the way to go.

USE DeskEngrave( FREE)  and find a font that HAS the Beta Character.

DESKENGRAVE, One of the BEST free things you can have in your MACH TOOL BOX(;-)

Have few Beta's to play with.... ;)

Notice the difference in the number lines between the two Gcode's as one is done with arc's ( drawn quickly ) and one is done with lines ( from DeskEgrave ).
Deskengrave is quick and easy but if you get picky then the straight line code may not suite you.
