When I make 3D text, 9 times out of 10 it works just fine and it makes the text a solid object. But for some reason when I make 3D text of the phrase “ENVIRONMENTAL BUILDING STRATEGIES” it isn’t a solid. Under the entity info where all the other 3D texts show the volume, there isn’t anything. I didn’t edit the text in any way, it’s still in the same component form that it made it. I had form and extruded both checked, and it is 1" tall text extruded 1/2". Is this just a bug in Sketchup? Has anybody found a work around for it?
It’s probably not a bug. What font are you using?
The “R” and the “A” in “STRATEGIES” overlap. Separate the two characters (or combine them) and the object becomes solid.
So that was happening, and I fixed it. It’s still not registering as a solid. I exploded it and remade the component again just to good measure and it’s still not registering as solid…
I’m using Tahoma font
