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.
