Updated 2/14/2014 to produce much smoother letters.
Updated 2/3/2018 to correct an error.
This project allows you to easily create a 3D name or word using the BlocksCAD software.
To create your own name:
When you are satisfied, click the "Generate STL" to create the .stl file for a 3D printer. This will send the .stl file to your "down load" folder.
Under the "Projects" menu, you can "Save Blocks to your computer" so that you can later reload the program and make changes.
I included the .stl file for "DONNA" shown in the image
also included are the SCAD and .xml BlocksCAD files
2/3/2018: corrected an error where the "letter thickness" variable was not correctly entered into the "3D text" block.
this was inspired by "Text" by Andra at
