joining a text with a cube

Hi, I want to join a text object with a cube object, after select both and press ctrl+j I got a message: this type of object doesn’t support joining.

So, i want to join them and then animate them as one single, my question is:

is there a way to join them?


Convert the text object into a mesh object. In object mode in the 3d window, under the object menu there is a convert sub menu with a few options, depending upon what you are working with. BTW, converting a text object into a mesh object results in poor topology of the new mesh…


You need to convert the text to a mesh with Alt+C.
Set the desired mesh resolution in the text properties before converting
