I work with a variety of CAD and CAM software and I am in need of DXF/DWG files that are lines of text. I need numbers 20x10 through 120×72 with the x in the middle. It would be painful to create all of these one by one.

The DXFs must be all put into the same folder, and the file names must be 20x10, 20x11. 20x12...etc. Also I need only the files that start with the prefix ammount greater than the suffix. For example after 55x55, the next file would be 56x55. Prefix maximum value will be 120 and the suffix maximum value will be 72. 


The text must also be converted into outlines before export, with no fill and no stroke, with the outlines being ISO font and 3in tall.


Is there a way to automatically generate these files and export as DXF/DWG into a folder with Illustrator?
