The Hershey Text extension in Inkscape come with some nice single line fonts, but the paths of the included svg fonts are straight lines only for the glyphs. I’d like the fonts smooth when used in larger scale – so I have smoothed them and you are welcome to download these and use them for free. License information and original creators/designers are included in the readme files. The downloads include the single line svg-font, a png glyph overview and a corresponding OTF (not finished for all fonts yet) and TTF font of type stickfont (double-line font).
I have also added the letters æ and Æ, if missing, to have the alphabet complete in my language.
See this post about the options for single line fonts / single stroke fonts / engraving fonts.
Hershey Script 1 stroke
The Hershey Script 1 stroke was originally created by Dr. A. V. Hershey, then prepared for the Hershey Text extension by Windell H. Oskay.
Updated 20.09.2021 with better accuracy and flow (joints).
In addition to smoothing this font I have also done some adjustments to the glyphs. When doing this the original font, Allura, have been my guide. (New version pr 18.09.2021)
Using the OTF stickfont you can work with the text as text object, use text on path options and then convert to singel line font (paths) using remove duplicate lines extension. Then you could also join the end nodes using the remove duplicate nodes extension.
Or use the Hershey Text tool and set the text object font to the font with the same name as the svg-font. The TTF font have more nodes than the OTF font, but this is set back to the original from the svg-paths as the Hershey Text Tool get the paths from the svg-file.
