Using Stick Fonts

You can use stick fonts when applying sketch text to parts or assemblies for laser engraving, water jet, and for Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining.

Stick fonts are also called single line, stroke, or open loop fonts. Use the OLFSimpleSansOC Regular font for all stick fonts.

There is no feature to simulate machining or engraving for Stick fonts. You should leave sketches for engraving or machining as independent sketches to be referenced later by CAM or CNC machinery.

To use stick fonts:

  1. Click Tools > Sketch Entities > Text.
  2. In the PropertyManager, under Text, clear Use document font.
  3. Click Font.
  4. In the Choose Font dialog box, under Font, select the OLF SimpleSansOC font.
  5. Select any other options, and click OK.
