What program to convert fonts to dxf is used? I want other fonts.

The OpenSCAD code was written 4 years ago using Write.scad by HarlanDMii, published on Thingiverse 18-Jan-2012 (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:16193 ) for the use of only a few fonts. Today OpenSCAD has the built-in function "text" which is much better. I recommend you download the OpenSCAD software at http://openscad.org and replace the "write" function with the new "text" function. It is free and not that difficult to learn. Good luck :-)

Im still new at SCAD files. The text part is my problem. Some SCAD files will have text and some will be just blank. Like this one. What am I doing wrong?

I guess you are using the Customizer app and not the OpenSCAD program. If you open a scad file in Customizer that has not been programmed with variables you will not be able to change anything - I guess this is what you mean by blank. If the file has been programmed with Customizer in mind then there will be additional help text in Customizer. If you want to change the "blank" scad files I recommend you download the OpenSCAD software at http://openscad.orgopenscad.org. It is free and not that difficult to learn. Good luck :-)
