Text to facade


When I want a facade text so how much should it be done? I do not want 3D text but text painted on the surface of the façade. Does it have to be done somehow through texture or how?  

attached picture what i meant

thank you

Yes, having a custom texture would work. I can think of two options:

1. Create a new Surface that uses the texture file, assign that Surface to the face of the Wall, then use the Align 3D Texture command to place it where you want on the wall.

2. Use the Picture 25 object. Assign it your texture in the parameters (use the without Frame option), then place it on the face of the wall.


You should add a Signature to your Profile (click the Profile button near the top of this page) with your Archicad version and operating system (see mine for an example) for more accurate help in this forum.

There should be no problem using the 3D text object.

You can set it so it is very thin and will appear as paint.

You might have to set it 1 or 2 mm in front of the wall so surfaces don't blend.

With 3D text, you can edit it easier if needed.
