Re: 3D printing a ham radio license plate

I would like to make a ham radio license plate but I don’t know how to put the large letters and number on the plate. See the screen capture. I screen captured this from SketchUp. My call letters were put in via Windows Paint. Windows font size only goes up to 72. Anyways the only thing I see in SketchUp is the little pointer text box. Do I have to do the text by hand with the line draw, ark and the 2 point line ark tools?

Look at the tool bar again, see the big A above the hand? That is the 3d text tool.

And while Box was replying, I made an example using the 3D Text tool.

To 3D print it, you’ll need to make it a group or component which must be shown as solid in Entity Info.
