poor form asking for 3D text

Recommended Posts

I let me SSA expire and haven't upgraded to a new version yet.  I would've sworn I downloaded all the 3D libraries, but apparently did not get 3D text.

 

Would anybody be willing to give me a blank file with the following 3D symbols:

 

WASH HOUSE

 

In a basic arial block text, with a 6" depth.  Version X6.  Assuming 3D text is able to be used in my version.

 If you download Sketchup you can use the 3-D text tool to create a symbol and then import into chief.

You can also try Elefont software

which I believe is free

As I've been searching for this, I recalled where I had used plines for hollow text in AutoCAD.

 

Imported the text into CA to see what would happen, and hey, just what I was looking for.  I went ahead and modified the rest of my plines, and saved to the attached file in case anyone else comes across this need in the future without using additional software.
