The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project opened its first official forum on its website this month (August 2019). https://inkscape.org/forums/ In an effort to combine all the different forums into one, this forum will no longer be accepting new members or new messages. However, it will remain open for a little while, for existing members, to have access to their contents, if they need them.

Any potential new members should register on the new forum, and post their message there. There is a special board for questions about using Inkscape for cutting machines (of all kinds). (https://inkscape.org/forums/cutplot/)

If you have any questions or comments (and you're an existing member) you can post them here.

Although I've been planning to put this forum in read-only mode, at the time of this transition, unfortunately, my personal circumstances have changed, and I won't be able to host this forum much longer. I'm not sure about the time frame. It could be as soon as the end of 2019, or as long as a year from now. If anyone is interested in taking it over, please contact me.

Single Line Fonts
« on: February 28, 2011, 03:04:47 AM »
Anyone who creates rhinestone designs or uses a pen instead of a blade in their cutter will need single line fonts. Here are some links to sites offering free fonts to download.
http://featurecam.com/general/support/engrave_fonts.asp
http://www.sawmillcreek.org/showthread. ... -line-font  the link to download is halfway down the page.
http://rhinotoday.com/2009/07/single-li ... -in-rhino/ the link to the download is halfway down the page.

The fonts from the last site need a bit of alteration before they can be used. Well, they did on my computer running Windows 7.

The fonts from sawmillcreek do not need any changes. After I unzipped the folder I installed all the fonts from the PFM folder into my Windows fonts.

All the information is on my blog and I do hope to find time to write this up in PDF format and add the information to the tutorial section on this forum. http://cuttingtime.blogspot.com/search/ ... ne%20fonts

I also found an extension for Inkscape specifically for creating single line fonts. Once again a bit of work is required and the information is on my blog. http://cuttingtime.blogspot.com/2011/02 ... scape.html

If you have any questions, ask away.

I thank you for the leads on the fonts, But I have just lost a fair amount of time and plan on losing more over there at that sawmill site. It sure doesn't take much to get me off track of what I am supposed to be doing...LOL

In the first post I added a link to a blog post showing how to download the Hershey Extension for Inkscape. Here is a video showing how you can use the font for rhinestone and other projects. I have made a second video showing how to use the other single fonts and will upload it as soon as I finish editing the video.

Thank you.  I got it downloaded yesterday and then didn't have time to explore.  You saved me, again, with the excellent instructions.

Off to see what to create with it.

Hi Darcy, I downloaded the font and had a look. It is not single line. I have attached a screenshot. You can use any font with a pen, it just depends on the look you are after. If I want a handwritten look I like single line fonts. Sometimes I like to use other fonts and use a fill to give a more solid look.

If you ever need to test a font to see if it is single or double line
- type some text
- apply path>object to path
- view in outline mode
In outline mode you will clearly see a black outline and that is the path the blade will follow.
