This font was for a project in which I wanted to match the font used for the
"Master of Puppets" album cover, but rounded instead of flat. I'll be glad to
post the .pov file if anyone's interested.

Kind regards,
Dave Blandston

Nice work again, Dave.
Please post the source - Maybe others will be inspired to design their own
versions.   :)

Hey Folks,

OK, I made a couple minor improvements (was using an upside-down "M" for the "W"
and the "N" was too narrow) and posted the code in the POV-Ray Text Files >
scene-files section. I hope it's useful!

Kind regards,
Dave Blandston

Thanks! Always useful, if not now, then (unexpectedly) sometime in the 
future.

I posted a _much_ easier-to-use version. Sorry for my initial laziness.

Last update until I can figure out how to add borders to these characters...
final version posted in the POV-Ray Text Files > scene-files section. The
attached image shows improvements to a couple of the characters and demonstrates
manual kerning (between the "A" and the "V" on the bottom line), which I made as
easy as possible.

Can't you just use a larger radius version set back or z-scaled a bit?

You could also calculate or use trace() to find the surface normal and use those
coordinates for the borders...

Your first suggestion sounded intriguing so I gave it a try. It almost worked
but the little piece that fits in the corners failed. I tried removing a portion
of the front to leave a flat face and added a smaller-radiused version that
protruded out a little. That worked fairly well. Everything is better with
borders!

Note: It looks like there might be a glitch at the top of the "A" but that's
actually just a reflection.
