    I presume you mean a pair of dies in steel for stamping ?

    If so then the KX3 will have no problems doing this.

    The Mach3 software won't do drawings, it's the controller software for the machine and reads G code that's been done by another program.

    I did the two 'nearly' matched sets last night in Vectrics, VCarve pro.

    I just used a font and made one female and one male but in real life the male one has slight radii in the corners equal to the tool radius.
    To work as a set of stamping dies the female one will need the same radii so it presses and not cuts.

    I could do the programming if needed.
