This tutorial will show you how to make text that looks good when engraved inside crystal. Extruded text is made up of a front and a back face. Two layers of points. This engraves opaque. If you want strong, bright text, you will need more layers.
Follow the slides above to see how.
This method uses the array modifier. With it you can continue editing the text, you can copy the text, you can put the text on a curve, and it will still be made up of multiple layers.
- ⇧ Shift A
- Select Text
- In the Properties viewport , click on>> Extrude by .01
- Then click on >> Add Modifer >> Array
- Change the array settings so that Count = 4, X = 0, and Z = 1
- Once you're finished modelling, convert it into a mesh for engraving into a crystal
