SOLVED: For anyone looking into this thread in the future, this has been solved in Rhino 6 with a C# script (courtesy of qythium). See posts from 24th of April which contain a working definition.
Note warnings from obsolete code are still present but do not prevent operation.
Wondering if anyone has come across a 3D text tag that can be produced, then manipulated inside grasshopper? I know Grasshopper has a built in 3D text tag, but it has no output for further manipulation.
With Rhino 5 I have been using the FabTools “Text 3D Advanced” along with his “Text Contour” component, which exports curves that represent your text.
Unfortunately the 3D Text Advanced doesn’t work with Rhino 6
If anyone is aware of a similar grasshopper componant please let me know!
