what is the font of the PRUSA logo?

Hoping someone can tell me what serif font is used in the PRUSA logo. Searching the forum didn't result in anything for me. The website is just "open sans", I don't know if that's used in the logo.

Freesans bold is close.

Thanks. Looks better than Liberation, at least. I'll print with that and post here when I have 'em done.

I finally put the nametags on my printers using this font, which is close enough for me:

The colors match the theme color overrides in Octoprint so I can distinguish them:

Not to be a buzz kill, but but make sure you've got enough clearance at max Z height. Z calibration that hits those at the top may cause problems. Consider clipping at the the very top and backs, and displaying the names above the frame.

I speak from experience... 🙂

Yeah, I was watching for that. That's part of why 'Grace' has it centered (vertically) in the frame, which keeps it out of the way of the MMU2 hanger. They are flat enough that the Z height isn't affected- except when I had a clamp on it while the glue was drying and it was hitting the clamp.

Have you considered it could snag the filament sensor wire/connector if the printer goes to max Z under those?

I do not remember exactly how similar font is called but I've seen some similar fonts at https://fontsly.com/ . It is a simple Sans Serif Font. If you make a quick look you will probably find something you need.

I think it is Sans Serif Font you can also know batter more about fonts behavior at: https://fontvilla.com/facebook-font-generator/ . Only a professional graphic designer can integrate such a beautiful font into a design. A skilled designer knows how to create a unique design by offering a different form to a traditional typeface. For instance, the classic lettering was given a new look by many logos. One example of how lettering can establish a brand identity is the Coca-Cola logo. According to entrepreneur.com, the good typography is one of the most important tips for an award-winning logo design.

I know I'm 10 months late to this thread - but I too was interested in the question.

I just chucked the Logo through "What the Font", which suggests the font is Neue Helvetica World 75 Bold

https://www.myfonts.com/fonts/linotype/neue-helvetica-world/75-bold/

 

Looks pretty close to me 🙂
