zero width fonts

Jun 27, 2013 at 16:48

Ok, so I'm trying to find a font that has no line width. Every font I've got displays a width with two lines (picture).This is so that I can put text on a part that our CNC tool will follow as a path, whereas the tool depth would determine the line width. Any ideas?!

A font for printing needs line width. Thus is not suitable for CNC machines

I don't use CNC (have no possibility to test),
but if You are interested I made little font tester with single lines:

You could test it...

As close to zero width as is possible:

Claude is right : for your application, you don't need a TTF (or OTF) Font but a CAD font, like the SHX of AutoCAD.

@ Menhir
This subject has been discussed here and there a million times over. Read and understand. There is no such thing as a CAD/CAM Font.

Well I somewhat changed my scenario. However, thank you for all your help. Koeiekat...not everyone spends ALL of their time on these sites. If you don't want to be a constructive contributer, then don't contribute. THANKS AGAIN ALL
