In Magic's, you can select the text to be a separate STL, then remove
the solid that you apply the text to. It's a bit simpler than modeling
in CAD.

Are you looking to place text on a part, or do you want to build the
text itself?
I have made letters and numbers alone, but created the characters on a
CAD system.
If you want to place characters on a part, Magics does a great job.

Hello list,

Does anyone know of a complete 3-D type font which is SLA-buildable?
(E.g., topologically water-tight polygon mesh.)
