I am wanting to engrave a surface with some text in order to be able to do 3D-printing, that is, I want to specify some text, with font/size/boldness, etc, including the depth, and then solid-diff this text from a brep.
I see that FabTools once did this, but it is looking long in the tooth and I am not sure whether it works for Rhino 7 (on Windows). I have downloaded Bower-Bird, which does have a BB Text option, which outputs a boundary curve. This would be workable. Presumably one can extrude the text to the required depth and then diff it from the surface…
… but is this really what people do? What is the recommended way to engrave text into a brep these days?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
