how to make the 3d text on the model in catia?
There are actually 2 methods of creating a 3d text on the model
1- Importing a dxf file of the text
2- Using a 3rd party software-Type 3
Create any extruded profile ( you can use any size and shape )
create a new drawing and create any text of any font and any text height
Save as the drawing file to a .dxf file
Open the saved dxf file and copy the text by selecting the whole text and clicking the copy icon as shown in the image
Go to the part file , and open sketcher and paste the text. Now the text is somewhere in the sketcher plane, locate the text by pan, zoom in out and rotating . Once the text is located select all and do "right click - select objects-explode" , you could see the line thicknes of the text has changed by now
go to fix together and select whole text. Now you have grouped all those tiny lines ,splines........ Etc
You can drag and position that text where ever you need, you can position it by dimensioning it also
You can use this sketch to create a pad or pocket .
