Join Kacie Hultgren for an in-depth discussion in this video The Text tool, part of Learning Tinkercad.
- [Instructor] Add custom text to your project.…The text tool is found under the basic shapes panel.…I'll scroll down to find it.…It's right here.…Click and drag it onto the work plane.…I'll show my shape controls.…You can type your own text.…If you are using a system with a different language,…definitely stick with the top choice here,…otherwise you have some other options:…serif fonts, sans serif fonts.…You can change the height of your text.…
You can change the bevel of your text, which actually has…the effect of bolding the text and if you want to have…that beveled edge you can increase the segments,…which adds a beveled edge on the top and bottom…of your text.…You can use this as a solid shape or you can change it…to a whole object to engrave text into another shape.…
