Write a word and print it out!

This isn't a 3D design, it's a 3D-design tool. The demo files are just examples; press "Open in Customizer" to get started with your own design.

The Text Tool utilizes the "text" function in OpenSCAD through the MakerBot Customizer so that you can create a quick 3D model of any word or phrase. The letters can be imported for use in any other design program as part of a larger design.

(The example picture shows some simple designs using the Text Tool output in Tinkercad, including a trophy cup shape from rocketboy's model

Much thanks to tbuser and atartanian for creating the Customizer that makes this tool possible! Also again to atartanian for the idea of making a base web with offset/inset. Thanks also to to wstein for wrangling the Google font list into something nice to use in OpenSCAD!
