text on isometric

Recommended Posts


I am wondering if there is a way to draw text over an object in 2d so it will remain attached to this object.   When I visualize the object in 3d I wish to also see the text "stamped" to it.  I wish to do that without having to set the heights of each piece of text separately.  is it possible?

You should investigate the new Data Tag tool. This will travel with any object it is assigned to in 2d and 3D. You can set it to take record information assigned to an object, manually accept info or do both together.

Or, try the Convert Text to Polyline command. After conversion I usually Extrude the resulting polys, giving them a bit of thickness. Note: this will result in a 3d object(s) which is/are no longer editable text.
