So I keep having alignment issues / camera issues, so I can’t properly cut out the paper ring for the AWESOME escutcheon found here:
But that’s ok, I’m a woodworker and should be able to craft a pretty thin poplar ring by engraving the text I want, in the FONT I want, then cutting it out. From there a quick trip through the table saw and the ring will be the depth I need. Alignment issues aside (this SHOULD fit perfectly on a 3 1/2 inch piece, but I might have to use a 6" piece) I CANNOT for the life of me get the fonts I want to use to engrave. I’ve tried both a PDF from AutoCAD, bringing that into the GF but it jacks all of the fonts up. Ok, I’ll open the PDF in Inkscape and convert it to an SVG - THAT doesn’t work. It basically trashes any font I have and nerfs it into a simplex font.
What gives?!? What am I missing to get the fonts I want to engrave properly?
