    Posted: 25.Apr.2018 at 06:35
Does anyone know of a stencil font made of single lines - such as might be cut out with a 2mm routing bit.   I want a simple font and only those characters with "islands" need to be in stencil format.   My Autocad Lite is old - '97 so need them in shx format.

Hello vector42, this may be good for you :
I have "drawn" in lines only SIMPLEX text style to draw 3D letters, numbers, etc...
See the file : ABCD.dwg in the CAD/BIM Library here in the site.
As it's in AutoCAD 2010, eventually ask for a "save as" towards...

I couldn't use the file because my Autocad Lite is '97 and won't accept the newer format.   I did use Nate143's procedure for exploding text and am currently working on that.   I was hoping that someone would know of a stencil font that was made with simple line characters that could be cut with a small router bit rather than the ones that are intended for making stencils.   I simply want to cut lettering right through in plastic sheet and don't want the centres of the "O" and "A" etc to fall out.
Does your file just use simple lines ?   And could you upload a version in '97 or perhaps a DXF please.

Cheers,
Chris

Hello vector42, I have done the DXF file to lower it to R12 but I can't load it here ( invalid format ).
Please send me an e-mail address to send it to you.
