SIGN

Recommended Posts

hey guys and gals,

a couple years ago i made a simple sign and cannot remember nor find the article on high i did it step by step. it was a business sign. it did not contain any 3d lettering. what i do remember was making a rectangle polyline sold and somehow was able to overlay the name on the sign from a bitmap or something. it came out great and added it to my business project i was working. any tips on how this is done?

Sure if you have an image of an existing sign you can make that into a material and apply it to a p-solid.  You can also create 3D letters from p-solids or even use some of the symbols from the Chief Library.

Or.....  you can use the Create Billboard Image tool.

It saves making a material.

The billboard will display in a rendered view as long as textures are toggle on.

It will display in a vector view with patterns toggled on or off.
