Tried to call a 3D text object from the zone stamp but it only shows up like an empty rectangle in 2D and nothing in 3D...!? Any idea what I did wrong?
CALL "3D-text 25" PARAMETERS textcontent = "Hello", gs_font_size = 10
It must be that the zone stamp is 2D only... How could I get the 3D text if not with the zone stamp? I obviously want to place a 3D zone name/number in the model. We do this with Grasshopper but this should be possible directly with GDL imo.

That would be my guess: zones don't behave in 3D like other objects - they are their own beast. If you were to try this same technique with a standard object, you would have better success.

It's a pity. I'd like a 3D room stamp to be automated...

Can you use REQUEST directly in the 3D text object?
Maybe make a copy of it specifically as a '3D zone text' object.
I just had a quick try (placed requests directly in the 3D script).
I can get the Zone_category request to work but not the Zone_relations - that just returns a zero for any of the variables - but it shouldn't.
It is supposed to work with objects
I don't have time to play any more just at the moment.

Zone stamps are floor-plan-only. Zone Labels (AC26) can be placed on section/elevation and 3D documents too.
The zone itself can't have a GDL model.
