Text in Background


Missed the ability to label objects in the background preview while working on Space Adjacency

Couldn’t find a way, so came up with an inefficient work around.

Will be happy to know that there already exists an efficient method and that I have wasted my time :slight_smile:


This file only has the english alphabet (Upper case). Will expand it to at least include numbers.




Ian Keough has made a Dynamo Text node that works pretty much like this. Takes string, point and scale and returns curves.


This is the link to Space Adjacency (The link in my previous post doesn’t seem to be right).

@Jostein Olsen - Was wondering if there could be another possible way (other than converting to lines and curves).


An improved version that rectifies some inconsistencies and also includes numbers

File: ABC123.dyn



Packed the above definition into two custom nodes



Also uploaded to package: Testing Waters



Is it possible to make this text vertical?


This is a really old definition, if it still works, vertical text might be possible by placing each character of the string in a sub-list
