I would like to try to make some single line fonts.
I use some of the existing fonts out there for engraving on a CNC router, and I’m just not totally satisfied with any of them.
In particular, I’d like to try to make a font comprised entirely of lines and arcs, to get an efficient and legible labeling font, and I’d also like to attempt to make a single line font that can be easily onverted to brush strokes.
can anyone recommend a program that isn’t part of the Adobe universe that I can use to make single line fonts?
when making single line fonts, is it possible for the lines to have reliable directionality like rhino curves do? If I can do that, I can use some basic grasshopper to do a subtle manipulation of the Z coördinates of the curve control points to create tapering engravings or brush strokes with a pen.
