Baking Text from GH to Rhino as regular text

Hi All,

I am trying to bake text from GH into rhino and it shows up only as a text dot.

Is there a way to bake text into rhino as just regular text?

If not, is there a way to convert a text dot into regular text in rhino ?


You can use Elefront plugin (downloadable from Package Manager), it has a component Define Text Object, as well as options to bake directly from Grasshopper.

Text Tag 3D (Tag) bakes as text.

In Rhino, when you bake text from Grasshopper, it is baked as a “text dot” rather than regular text. This is because the text dot is actually a point object in Rhino with a label, rather than a true text object.

To convert a “text dot” into regular text, you can use the “ConvertDot” command in Rhino. This command will convert the text dot into a standard text object. Once it is converted, you can edit and format the text as you normally would in Rhino.

Yes but how can this be automated? Currently I can only do the baking manually.
