Text curve on Object

Hi folks!

Noob blender-ite here. Thanks in advanced!

I was following a tutorial on modelling a Contact C type of medicine capsule. But I wanted to add text that wraps onto the capsule. I know how to curve text around a circle, but the curve point is wrong. I want it to curve along the capsule (ie: top and bottom of letters bend back).

I spent about an hour trying this…but had absolutely no luck. Can someone help with curving text onto an object?


You might want to try UV mapping an image of the text onto your capsule. That would allow you to put the text exactly where you want.

Thanks Trevor!

I’ll give that a shot! (even though I’ve never done UV mapping, most of the fun is learning new things on your own!!)
