    Nice find Jim! Thank you for sharing these :)
    You know that brings up a good idea, we should have a fonts section to share these style and stencil style fonts that will Phlatprint easily
    If there is interest I will make the new section :)
    Thank you
    Mark and Trish

    Thanks for posting this Jim. These should come in handy for sure.
    A font section is a good idea Mark.

    I love my Multicam, but the intense learning curve has been a roller coaster for a couple years already..
    and the economy these last few years made it not such a good time to "study" ...so, I've been running a minimal crew, and working insane hours just to cover the nut without going belly up...


    ...but, I digress... I like learning new stuff, and I let the variety of jobs rolling through here dictate what new thing I learn at any given time... and right now I need to quickly figure out a way to complete a job I promised out for Monday...

    The sign is only 6" x 10" and has a simple raised border, a single bold word in raised block lettering, and a 2" x 5" raised panel with some 1/4" copy.

    I thought I could do this with a conic tool... and in fact I think I did it a year or so ago... but I ran a few tests & wasn't getting my intentions properly sent to the machine, so the results were incorrect...

    Is there something like a centerline font that my conic bit can follow, for a simple sans serif engraving? I don't mind buying a new font if anyone knows for sure that this will help me get the job done.

    I am using Enroute 4

    ‘Single line fonts’ is a subject that keeps coming up on various forums and it has never really been completely resolved. Most if not all of the quality fonts are associated with their respective software programs and are not, in themselves, available separately.
    The single line TTF fonts available with CamBam were separated at some time or another and although they are perhaps not for commercial use without license they do crop up on various sites with a download option. This is one such site http://www.mrrace.com/CamBam_Fonts/
