Can anyone tell me how I can create some single stroke font text using Rhinocam? I would like to engrave some text using a v shaped cutter. I've been trying to do so with no success. When I create the text object(s) in rhinocam, I am checking the box to allow single stroke fonts. But, I've gone through the entire list of available fonts and don't see any that are single stroke. All of them more or less create boundries that I can pocket, but that's not what I want. This seems like it should be very simple. I must be missing something.

thanks

There are 5 Window's True Type single stroke fonts available for download on that page. They appear to be OK in both Visual Mill and Rhino and hopefully they will eliminate the problem of only having TT fonts that show up as outlines instead of a single engraveable line.

cheers,
Michael

Michael,

Thanks for the link. I was able to use all of those fonts successfully once I figured out where to install them. I didn't realize that Rhino uses the fonts in the windows font directory. I was scratching my head trying to figure out how to install the fonts into rhino.
