Now that I have a Tooli, I would like to have a small collection of “engraving” fonts. These are fonts that consist of strokes to create the letters rather than fills. (A good explanation of this is here.) The filled fonts don’t work very well with the CNC style tools, and are also less efficient when using lasers if you engrave the font rather than stroke the outline.
I found a few single line fonts from links in the above reference, but they don’t seem to work very well in Illustrator (they execute a stroke where the “pen” should be lifting). I’m aware that Inkscape has the Hershey Text extension which accomplishes this goal, but I’m really hoping I don’t have to download Inkscape just for that one function when I’m so used to using Illustrator.
Any help or recommendations?
