Fathers day gifts

I thought about this overnight and given the age of the students, familiarity the teacher has with the application and the time constraints, I would suggest learning some basic shape creation and use of 3D text.

@jkcook, maybe, maybe this is an idea as a printable key chain fob or at least gives you an idea what can be achieved with your own text.
