I'm unclear as to what your question is asking.

Sorry. A collection of letters constructed from bricks.

Not what you asked for, but I've made an alphabet of only lower case letters, using only edge lines.

I ended up using this too, thanks!

What is your "license" for the parts? Public domain?

I've never thought much about this question. What should I write, if I wanted add a licence line?
It feels wrong to use the standard ldraw line referring to a CAreadme.txt

If you find them useful, go ahead, as long as I remain as author of the files.

The problem is I want to use them in a model that is published online where other people can download it, as well as your files.

Inspired by this topic, and starting with works found in this thread, I've been compiling a typeface of "legal" (i.e. not requiring any jumper plates) tile-based letters and numbers. 

   

To help others, I'll post the DAT file here, once I'm done. ;-)  

I've also added some common punctuation marks. So far, I've got the period, the comma, the colon, the semicolon, and the hyphen. Any other marks you think we should have?
