    Default Machining Symbols

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hello,

    I am using AutoCad LT 2005. I need to make a leader callout for a 2-56 UNC blind threaded hole .1 inch deep.
    I went through all the TrueType Fonts loaded on my computer but I can not find the one for a hole's depth. A straight line with an arrow placed in the middle pointing down. Are there any machining Truetype or other type of fonts or symbols out there? I could "fudge" something but I try to avoid doing that if I can.

    Thanks

    Ernie

    Try the Windows font AMGDT. It would be the letter X.
    Saw this font a few days ago while cruising through all the Windows XP fonts.
    Hope this helped.

    Default AMGDT font

    Hi,

    I don't think AMGDT is on my system.. I'm running XP Pro. I'll see if I can find it on the internet.

    Thanks

    Default Amgtd

    I found and installed it but the letter X shows up as the letter X...

    I appreciate your help though.

    Thanks

    Using AMGDT as your font file, type "U+0078" (without the quotes)
    FYI it can be found in the Character Map of Windows.

    Lowercase x is easier yet.

    Ernie, sorry, my bad.
    I meant lowercase x.

    Hi,

    I got it to work. I found out that the font, GDT will do the same thing in lower case and I didn't have to search the internet for it.

    Thanks Again
