If sombody asks for a Fusion360 compatible MS33558 font, here we go!

It´s now fully functional and extrusionable in fusion360.

Happy easter!!

 

Thx Derek Higgs for the original font!

Thx to all the homecockpit builders for their contribution and sharing their ideas.

your a lifesaver

 

having to make all the text in inkscape and then add them as extrusion in fusion 360 always made this so bothersome 🙈

Can you fill the letters appropriately ?

Yes, Whisky, what you said, A, B, D, R were the candidates. (4.5mm height).

But I might mix my thoughts up between my CNC end bit engraving experiences and the ones from laser engraving.

Works fine on NX, thanks. I remember having trouble in Autodesk Inventor with the original version. Some letters would not behave. I haven't tested the original version in NX but I bet it would have the same problems in every CAD

 

Edit: spoke too soon! Even though I did a successful extrusion with letters A-Z and numbers 0-9 and it worked great, now I'm trying to make an F-16 Master Caution indicator, the S and C fails to extrude. Also the kerning is problematic, M and A in MASTER overlap slightly

Next iteration... Kerning is quite challenging, but for every solved problem i do learn something new...

Every letter should be extrudeable. If there are still some kerning issues, maybe place single letters and place them right, or feel fre to edit the font. I used the free software fontforge.

How was this process completed?

 

Let's say you stumbled across a couple of real world F/A-18 panels, and then used a 600mm telephoto lens to take an orthographic image, and had a very patient wife who created a font based on size-calibrated images.  BUT, then had the same issue with the font software and could only display, rather than cut in CAD.

I opened the font in fontforge, corrected all inconsistencies (deleted the overlaps, added missing extremas, converted all points to integers) to be a real ttf then reencoded it, validated and "resaved" it as truetypefont.

There is still some kerning missing, but thats an different more timeconsuming issue.

Damn! I don't know how it can work in one instance and fail in another! I can fix it by projecting the text on a new sketch and filling the gaps there, but I can't understand how it can work some times...

Great, thanks for the advice! Have a working font set with reasonable (major) spacing, but as you noted, could put more time into kerning.
