Hi. We have CNC milling mahcine in our shop and our shop guys MasterCAM to run it. I want get lables https://freebears.com/engraving-fonts engraved on aluminum piece. I want them to use 1/32 end-mill and run single line letter at required depth so that it will engrave the letter. But what ever font I see in SolidWorks text fonts, I dont see single line letter fornt like "Stick font" I see in the MasterCAM. I could leave notes in drawing and let our shop guys create labes using MasterCAM but that is not how I want to document it. I would like to import such single line text on to solidworks/windows fonts so that I could use it on my model in solidworks and doument it in the drawing. Can somebody advise me what is the best font they use for engraving in solidworks?

This has been discussed quite a bit in the forums. You can do a search for engraving font or single line font and find them. Get the MasterCAM Stick Font file from your CNC computers and place it in the Windows Font folder on your computer. Then you can use that in your models.

Now the real fun starts when it's on a contoured surface. The ISOCP font is what we have found that works best. The text is acutally cut into the model and a wireframe is created. Then through the magic of CADKEY the entities are deleted, extended & recreated until we are left with a single line font.
