AutoCAD to Glyphs?

does anyone have experience in constructing a font in AutoCAD and exporting it to Glyphs?

I am re-building letters according historical material, which is super mathematic to start with. I have drawn some letters in AutoCAD by now, and I would like to generate a digital font.
At the moment, I use the following procedure: After exporting the .dwg files as PDF or eps, I open it in Illustrator. When I than copy&paste the curves to Glyphs, they get messed up. The points don’t match any more.

Has anybody some experience with moving AutoCAD lines to Glyphs?

Can you send me one of the .dwg and .eps files?

Sure, just send you an Email (wasn’t allowed to upload these file types in this window). But I attached a screenshot of the original from Roßberg, for interested users :slight_smile:
