'[OT]: Anyone have a DXF of the Australia "C-Tick" '

Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to put an Australian "C-Tick" mark on a PCB, but I can't import
any of the bitmaps that I have of the symbol.. Does anyone have it in a DXF
format that I could use?

Thanks for your help,
Ash.

Is it like the US "cent" sign? (¢)

I was able to enter it into AutoCAD as text.  If you have Windows, check the
character map, click the closest approximation and it will tell you what key
sequence you have to use to get it. On my system it is alt-0162.

Hi Jeff,

No unfortunately its a little more complex :)

http://www.aca.gov.au/standards/index.htm has an example of it.. This is the
approximate equivalent of the "CE" mark in Europe for Australia. I can
download several different bitmap formats, but these aren't really that
useful on a PCB..

It is a filled circle with a contrasting "tick" mark.

I've done an approximation of the symbol using arcs and tracks on my board
for now..

Cheers,
Ash.

The GIF and TIFF on the site
http://www.aca.gov.au/standards/marks.htm
are both 656 x 656 pixels...

What makes them non-useful on the PCB?  You could have it as large as 4cm x 4cm and it'd still be higher resolution than 300dpi.

If you have to approximate it, then I'd first make a circle, then use the check mark included in one of your fonts as a white layer over the black circle with the tail hanging out of the edge of the circle.  If you don't like the idea of using a character from a font (you DXF purist you!) then three white lines would make a very good approximation.  With the right rounding you probably couldn't find a person who could tell the difference.

If you must have it exact then there are programs that will turn the bitmap (raster) image into a vector image for you.

I am surprised, however, that they don't have either a font or a vector form of it though...

Hi, the symbol is very simple, I made a .dxf
from the bitmap and you can download it here:
http://www.romanblack.com/c_tick.dxf

It is single colour (black) and relies on having a
white background. If that's a problem just put a white
circle under it. :o)
