I learned a few (beginner) things working with text in some 3D Printing projects…
Nice collection. If you are looking for a name tag generator, then you’ll like Object Factory with OpenJSCAD.org. No fancy stuff, just text!
Re: Sketchup - you can use any font, including fonts that you design yourself.
I haven’t made a video to show exactly how to do this, but you can make your own arbitrarily complex vector-based glyphs, saved in SVG format, then convert that SVG into a font, then Skechup’s built-in Text tools can extrude them for 3d printing.
I’m sure that there are other ways of doing that, but that way did work for me.
