We’ve built a 3D text tool to convert any text into 3D text.
To make the tool work you’ll need the following:
Blender 2.8 installed
The “Text_tool_template” from us. Here is a link
File with your text (.txt), if your text is more than one row
The first time you open “Text_tool_template” you will see a warning.
Choose “Permanently allow execution of scripts” and “Allow Execution”.
After that you will see the Text Tool menu
Here is a video how to use it.
For .TXT file
One line text option
When “Build and Export 3D text” is pressed, it will create a .OBJ (3D Object) file. The OBJ file will be named the same as the text file you choose and also saved in the same location on your computer.
When “Build and Export 3D text from text box” is pressed, it will again create a .OBJ file. In this method you can choose where and what the file is called by pressing the folder Icon next to “Export to and Name your file:”. If you do not choose a name and file location and try to export a .OBJ file will be made in the same location as the Text_tool_template.blender file with the name “3D_text.OBJ”.
Once you have your 3D text, import it into the Workshop. Click on the link below to see how.
