Re: Free GD&T font for Word and Excel

Hi

Give FreeGDT a try.

Its a font I've created along with a tool to create the tolerance calls. It also includes some drawing symbols. You can create tolerance calls either with or without control frames. Even better it free.

The forum will not let me post a link directly but go to ***DEAD LINK REMOVED***

Thanks
Mick

Please Help! Re: Free GD&T font for Word and Excel

I am creating a Dimensional Inspection Report using Excel.
I have downloaded the file to my Document folder.
I need to create a Tool Bar in Excel so that I can use the symbols in my report.
Can someone give step by step instructions on how to do this.
Thanks

Re: Free GD&T font for Word and Excel

Welcome to the Cove.

I'm not sure which of several files in this thread you downloaded, but since they're all fonts it probably doesn't matter. Before you do anything, you have to install the font. These instructions are based on Windows XP; I think it's probably the same in whatever version you're using, though:
  1. Navigate to C:\Windows\Fonts. If your system drive is something other than C:, change the "C" accordingly.
  2. Click on "File" at the top of the page, and then "Install New Font..."
  3. In the dialog box, find the font file. You said you saved it in My Documents, so it would be C:\Documents and Settings\username\My Documents, where username is your Windows user name.
  4. Click "OK" and the font will be installed. You might need to reboot in order for your programs to be able to "see" the new font.
As far as using some form of toolbar in Excel, I don't think it's possible. Using any symbol font is a bit clumsy. I don't have access to Excel at the moment, but if I recall correctly there is no Insert>>Symbol facility as there is in Word. You might be stuck with using Windows Character Map, which is accessed by: Start>>All Programs>>Accessories>>System Tools>>Character Map. When you open Character Map, look for he GD&T font in the list, and you'll see something like:



From there, it's a rather tedious process of copying and pasting the desired characters into your document. Select the character you want, click "Select" and then "Copy." The character will be copied to the clipboard from whence it may be pasted into the document. Repeat until you've built the feature control frame you want. The attachment shows what a completed feature control frame looks like.

If anyone here knows of a simpler method, by all means chime in.

Thanks Sorin, the Y14 font is the that Iíve ended up using for now. The problem is that most of the ones out there appear to have been made with a specific customer in mind. This one is lacking a couple items that my commodity uses.




Lacking symbols forÖ
  • Surface finish / texture (elongated square root symbol)
  • Co-sink (ďvĒ)
  • Depth (horizontal line with down arrow) This one had it but others I looked at do not.
  • Machined surface (closed checkmark)
  • Between designation (double end arrow)
  • CenterLine / symmetrical @ cntír line (capital C overlaid on capital L)
  • JIS type texture callouts (upside down triangles, 1 thru 4)
  • The ability to properly show Stacked GD&T criteria
Itíll do for the time being and if nothing else to show the IT guys that this kind of stuff is indeed already out there rather than having to re-invent the wheel.
I am currently creating the new ASME Y14.5-2009 version of this font. Along with the 2009 updates, it will include upper / lower case with the addition of surface finish (JIS and US), some welding and some other metrology related symbols plus composite and stacked feature control frames. Again it will be free public domain for both commercial and personal use. Unfortunately, it will not be backwards compatible with the Y14.4M font.

Please post requests for any other symbols that you would like included and I will endeavor to add them before releasing the completed font

Once the font is complete, I will post it here and on http://www.fontspace.com with instructions. The Y14.5M-1994 version of the font is here for anyone who wants it: http://www.fontspace.com/micronus/y145m

Re: Free GD&T font for Word and Excel

The font and a control program for creating composite and stacked feature control frames:

is attached in this post as well.

As usual the attached fonts and control program are Public Domain and copying and redistribution is encouraged.

Re: Free GD&T font for Word and Excel

just a heads up, i know this is an old thread, but the "FCF Generator" does not spit out the diametric symbols correctly if you click the check box in the Feature Control Frames tab.... anyone have a newer version that fixes this glitch? thanks!


Diameter symbol does not show up
