If this pop-up appears, either choice will work. You can always move your mesh somewhere else after it’s been loaded in.


Part Five: Finishing Touches

If your mesh too small, like mine is, use the scale tool. This allows you to make your mesh bigger in any dimension. Remember to use shift while using the resize tool if you want to keep proportions.

Q & A

Q: Why can’t I use
XAXA’s ThreeDText 2 Plugin?A: While the plugin is very quick and efficient, it only has 12 fonts to pick from. The plugin also only supports a limited number of characters; Languages with non-Latin scripts such as Chinese, Japanese, Thai, and Arabic aren’t supported.

But, the plugin does make it significantly easier to edit words, though, and is very fast. It’s amazing. So, by all means, if you’re trying to create 3D text for a Latin-based script, and if you don’t mind a limited number of fonts, go ahead and install the plugin. I’d highly recommend it.

Q: Why can’t I use Blender?A: You can, but I won’t be covering how. Think of this as a faster and easier alternative to using Blender.

Q: Why FBX?A: Studio will only open FBX and OBJ files. Additionally, most people just tell you to.

Q: Why Windows only?A: Because Paint 3D is only available on a Windows computer.

Q: What does 拉麺 mean?A: Ramen.
