- [Instructor] And finally, one more way…to create 3D objects is to actually create 3D text.…Now SketchUp has two text tools.…One is for 3D text, which are things for…such as signs and that sort of thing.…We also have another text tool which is used for…labeling, so for technical drawings and that sort of thing.…So let's take a look at 3D text.…We're going to go into Tools, 3D text.…And here we have a box, into which…we can enter our 3D text.…
We can then also choose whatever font we want,…and this is really just the fonts that are on your system.…We can choose the alignment: centered, right, or left.…We can choose whether or not it's bold, italic, and so on.…We can also choose a height, so if we wanted to…make it, say, two feet tall, we could do that.…We can also create a depth, so if we have…extruded checked, then we can create a depth for this.…
So let's make it, say, six inches deep.…And then we can also fill this if we want.…So I'm going to leave it filled and extruded,…and let's go ahead and select Place.…
