In this video, we will look at the Bevel and Extrude modifiers. …These modifiers add depth to all 3D splines. …The Bevel modifier has more extensive properties than the Extrude modifier, …allowing you to curve the sides of the 3D extruded model. …We're going to use this Max text, to, show how these modifiers work. …Once you create the Max text you can type in, whatever you want. …I just put in 3ds Max. And you can change it to whatever font …you want from the list or supply of whatever you have on your own computer.…
I have Garamond and the size is 25. From the modifier list I'm going to …choose Extrude. By default, the Extrude modifier has no …amount applied. You can add the amount, and add segments …will give you subdivisions along the sides of the model. …You can turn off the caps at the start and end.…
Which are like the top and the bottom. It's a little strange. …The Extrude modifier is limited in that way that it just gives you straight sides. …But it's a very easy way to turn a 2D object into a 3D object. …
