Hello, was a easy solution to this found? 

This by @DomC is fantastic, and has tons of uses beyond the one shown here, but also it does seem a medium complicated solution to a simple problem. 

Did anyone find a single line font that does convert to single lines not double lines? All the ones I have tried are result in double.

If you have a Truetype Font, it has always two curves. Even it it called single line font. So direct converting a truetype font will result in two curves. What you could do, is to produce a font map like the above script in a software which integrates real vector fonts and export it to dxf/dwg. Import it in Vectorworks and modify it to the structure the marionette script needs to catch the characters.


I use that for exporting it to my little milling machine.
