Add/merge text to objects?

Hi,

Sorry for newbie questions, but if you don’t ask you don’t get any answers :slight_smile:

How do you add text to objects?
Like adding text to keys for keyboard keys that are bent.
Or like adding text to a round object like a tube.
I’d rather not use an image to keep resolution regardless to zoom level.

You can add by a series of decals or UV unwrap your keys and map an image to them.

And since your worried about resulution, you could use a vector image in the UV.

Thanks for the links!
I’m using 2.53 and it seems we can’t import vector images yet… or?

You can use .svg I assume, since it can export to svg.
