I have an interest in creating a logo which consists of letters on the side of a cube like the UML logo here (yes, mine is related). I actually want two cubes connected by a plane with letters on all surfaces from as seen front center up. The cubes themselves will end up invisible. So far, I know how to do all of that, but how, with TCPro15 do I apply a letter to the surface of the cube?
I went a slightly different route... using neither the "Image" nor "Material" method:
>I drew a cube-- equal length edges. Put that on its own Layer.
>I then drew each individual letter Text, changing the Workplane as needed to each of the three faces of the cube. (Workplane by Facet; and/or Workplane by 3 Points)
The Text are all on another Layer.
>I Exploded all the Texts twice each, creating Polylines.
>Scaled each to the edges of the Cube (by Selecting them, then pulling on the Selection Box, Nearest on Graphic
-Snapping to the Cube edges); then-- with "Keep Aspect Ratio" active-- Scaled each Text individually by a factor of .95 (.98 might have worked better... been more like the UML logo John linked to)
>In each (Text's) Properties, changed the Line type to "Invisible", the Brush to Solid. Changed the colors of the Brushes.
>Made not-Visible the Layer the Cube is on.
>Went to (Standard) Isometric SW View, then used "Examine" Tool to rotate to my liking.
>Created PNG of view.
Created this in my version-19, so I can't save to version-15. With a little forethought, I should have created it in my version-11 so that I could have shared the .tcw file with you; I can do that, if you think you can make use of it.
