Roman Numerals
« on: February 20, 2008, 06:57:51 PM »
Hi All.
I want to engrave a small clock face with Roman Numerals.
I have Googled for a font without success.
Anyone any experience or ideas on using Roman Numerals in AutoCAD or know the location of a font(free)

Pick your poison. Pretty much anything with a capital I, X, and V will do.

Thanks for that Sam.
A bit of lateral thinking can make things seem simpler than originally thought.
Thanks also for the URL and the pic.

Thanks for  your input Rich.
I will see if I can locate DeskEngrave.
I did a layout in AutoCad but on transferring it to LazyCam some of the numerals jumped to different locations!!.
I don't know why since most stayed put.
I have found a more suitable font now and will try again.

Desk engrave is pretty basic in function. If you need to do anything that requires a bit of art, I doubt it will do you any good. Don't get me wrong, it does work nicely for some things, the price is right, and I do use it myself for some things. http://www.deskam.com/products.htm

You are right Sam, it is rather basic.
So far I have failed to make it arrange letters around a complete circle.

Thanks anyway

Rich,
thanks for the info.
I have now got a copy of ctext.lsp downloaded but I am unsure how to use it . I use AC2005.
I expected to have to put it in a lisp folder but don't see one.

Could you let me know what I need to do.

Thanks RICH,
Got it all sorted and working now and understand a little more about AC.
