Could somebody tell me how do I create a 3D Signage? I am designing an exhibition space and need to put a signage above the entrance door but have no idea how to make the letters 3D.

Thanks!

Look in your HELP: "Model Text"

the problem with model text is that the sign will look

like text instead of a sign.. i haven't made too many

signs- but it seems like you would want to make the

3D letters with an in-place family.. and if it's a serious

sign- you would probably want to have a sketch made

by a sign company first..

I have used the model text successfully, you may find that you need to set up several differing workplanes, for setters facing differing directions and or along a curved surface.

I've also used ModelText for exterior signage. I nested in seperate families for each word into one Generic Face based component. I made each word seperate because I wanted each word to be its own light source.
