basically what it says. Is it possible to take a numerical variable and convert it into a text variable. IE:
Is there a way to create text1 automatically from var1 & var2 ?
I'm guessing this is where the string theory comes in. Have yet to get my head around strings :-)
Answered it myself - why the manual has to complicate things by adding echo crap to the actual commands, I'll never understand.
Anyway this is what i ended up with and, by all the gods it works perfectly :-)
var1 = 30;
var2 = 50;
text1 = str(var1 , " x ", var2);
text(text = text1, size = 100, halign="center", valign="center", $fn=20);
you can align text ?
Cheers - did not know that, yet more useful stuff :-)
