does anybody recognise this font?
Chances are it's hand lettered using a template, most technical drawings are hand lettered / template lettered.
I'd suggest Simpliciter Sans
DIN16 should do as well.
Edit: FF DIN comes close actually...
Good call, Asvetic. Another rounded, template-based option would be Gravur Condensed from Lineto.
Try Gotham Rounded.
...modeled around the popular Wrico lettering kits used by draftsmen and amateur sign makers in the 1960s and ’70s...
Or DIN 17. I do not know 16, Vincent. Can you show?
Chevin - like a more characterful, rounded Din.
Stephen, I couldn't find a link on FontShop nor MyFonts. I did find it under FontFactory. There is also an old thread on Typophile. Can't seem to find a purchase link I'm afraid...
Ahh, funny that I recommended 16 in that thread. 2003 -- so long ago.
Mecanorma is sadly in trademark limbo. Cannot purchase ahora.
Think I got it from a friend back in 2000–2001. Wanted to get my hands on any fonts that were clean & geometric after having used several letter rulers in Secondary school. Just loved setting them on paper with a traditional pen!
