    Fonts for Pathpilot

    I am becoming increasing frustrated with trying to find Single Stroke Fonts for Pathpilot. I find that the outlined TruType fonts just don't look good in small text sizes.

    Anyone found AND successfully used a single stroke font? I need a Helvetica or Gothic font to engrave a batch of AR Lowers.

    Fonts for Pathpilot

    There are "stick" fonts that I've used in Cambam. Another forum member got them into Path Pilot not too long ago I think.

    Here's an example:

    Turbocad uses a bunch of stick fonts. The main one I use is GDT.shx

    The Cambam fonts look pretty good too though.

    Guys thanks for the help!

    The CamBam fonts worked quite well. The toolpath logic expects to see two lines in the font outline so it cuts each path twice but that's okay.

    My .50 Beowulf now has its identity engraved on its sides. As soon as I open up the ejection port it will be ready to run!

    That is weird why you are experiencing problems with finding single stroke fonts as there a lot of them over the internet. I am always using fonts from https://upfonts.com/liberator-font/ and I can find there all different kinds of fonts and I am very happy that there are such nice websites with unique fonts that you can find just on that website. The thing is that most of those fonts are being created by users themself and they are sharing them with other users for free. I am writing currently different articles for different websites and all of them require to use of unique fonts and upfonts website helps me a lot with that.
