Programs like Elefont?

Recommended Posts

I came across an old ChiefTalk thread recommending this utility for creating 3D Text that can be imported in to Chief, but despite my best efforts, I can't find an updated version.

Does anyone know of programs similar to or better than Elefont that would be supported on the Mac or Windows 10?

I'm hesitant to even attempt to install this version I found online that has System Requirements of "Windows XP/2000/NT 4.0/95/98"

Much thanks!

I'm sorry, I should have said that I already know about Chief's 3D text, but to be honest, it isn't very visually appealing, and I have to place it letter by letter and get their heights and sizes all oriented correctly relative to each other and it's a pain.

Elefont sounded like it would be a very nice way to quickly create 3D symbols of whatever words or phrases I needed using any TTF font on my system.

Apologize for wasting anyone's time, it turns out I missed the obvious . . . The free version of SketchUp Make that I already have on my computer has a 3D Text tool that does exactly what I need.

      We are designing  a commercial building and ant to show the name of the business on a board running the width of the building. How do you create text so that is shows up in perspective?

      Wondering if there is a way to make letters into polyline solids so that I can attach them to another solid to make an embossed look?
