Adding 3D Text

3D text can be added to your landscape using the 3D Text object. Since 3D text appears in the Plan and Perspective views, as well as during a Realtime Walkthrough, it is very versatile and can be used for labels, signs, and more.

If you wish to add flat text that only appears in the Plan view, use the Text object instead.

To add 3D text:

1.   Click the Add 3D Text button, which is found near the top of the screen under the Utilities tab.

2.   Click on your landscape design where you wish to place the text.

3.   From the dialog that appears, type the desired text and click the OK button.

4.   Modify the style of the text as needed. See below for a list of available text properties.

The picture below shows an example of 3D text being used to display a client’s name during a Realtime Walkthrough.


      You can toggle the appearance of 3D text by clicking View, Show/Hide Objects, and selecting the 3D Text option. For more details, see Showing and Hiding Objects.

      3D text can be scaled and rotated as needed.
