Orach Technic Braile


Orach Technic Pro - Braille

About Braille font

We made the first inscriptions in braille and with a CNC machine in 1988 as an experiment.
We then engraved the field around the dots, which was not good enough.
When we gave it to the blind to read, we saw that they struggled to read it.
The reason was that the upper surface of the points was flat and not curved.

Then we made knives-tools with the sharpened part of the knife, in order to get the sharpened part of the ball,
but that was never good either, so we gave up on that too.

At the beginning I want to say, we didn't do much on these inscriptions,
but for 35 years, we have not charged anyone.

Later we started using 1,5mm metal Braille balls, here is our picture.

Orach Braile Font was generated in our Orach Font Editor, as .eff fonts, each letter as a group of dots.

We want to help everyone here who is interested in this and who wants to do this but they don't have this resolved.

But Orach Technic Pro (Thin-ProGRAV) .ttf
is someting completely different and unique

This font with simple point cannot write correctly in programs like Adobe Illustrator, CorelDRAW etc,
so for that reason it was generated-made this font style as .ttf with veri small circle.
The size of the circle at the required size (Pictures below) is 0.2mm.
(The size of the circle could be and smaller, but then the dots are not visible on the screen.)

The manufacturing procedure is maximally simple and can be implemented on any engraving or CNC machine.

The Orach Technic Pro font is selected default size is 34p, the necessary letters are writen,
1,5mm holes are drilling and 1,5mm balls are inserted, and this is all.

Of course, a little skill is needed with all this. Ball can be 1,5-1,6mm of metl otr palstic,
base can also be palstic or metal, theafore the approprite driling tool should also be selected.

Ball can be 1,5-1,6mm of metl otr palstic, base can also be palstic or metal,
theafore the approprite driling tool should also be selected.

Plastic balls turned out to be much more practical, it is easer to stamp then and stand firmer.
Sprinkle the balls on the material and they will fall into place by themselves,
turn the drill upside down and press the balls with the same program.
