Mold cavity ID Engraving

I was wondering what mold makers using Pro Manufacturing  are doing to engrave cavity ID's. Right now we are labeling the ID using a sketch

then make an engraving program for each of the 64 cavities. So we have to edit the part file for each number  as well as the engraving program to create 64 tap files to send to the cnc.

I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for automating the process or how they did cavity ID numbering. it can be quite a tedious job creating 64 files that take about a minute to run in a cnc.
