All my current fonts are available on http://www.fontspace.com/micronus

These fonts are used for mechanical engineering. There are 3 available Y14.5M.ttf, Y14.5M-2009.ttf and WeldSymbols.ttf.

Y14.5M: Creates ASME Y14.5M GD&T feature control frames.To get this font please go to http://www.fontspace.com/micronus

Y14.5M-2009: Is the new update to the 2009 version of the ASME Y14.5M spec.  This font is capable of composite feature control frames and includes the welding symbols. This is a unicode font so some of the characters may not work in older non-unicode programs.

WeldSymbols: Has the unicode weld symbols from the Y14.5M-2009 moved to the non-unicode characters.

 

 

Both fonts are included in these zip files: Y14.5M-2009 (version 1) and Y14.5-2009-Setup (version 2.0.3.1 – XP & Windows-7 compatible) as well as a program to assist in creating composite feature control frames.

August 2013 – Added a new version of:   Y14.5-2009-Setup_2.0.3.2.  This includes an updated control program and a new font named Y14.5-2009.ttf that has some new symbols and some minor corrections to the font and welding symbols:

The font uses some unusual metrics for boxing characters. To learn how to use the font, read the PDF files included in the ZIP file above.

Here are some screen captures of the Y14.5-2009 program:
