How to Create a 3d Channel Word Model using the PrintUP 3D Printing Software (Part 2)

channel letter word model

Now that have had a look at Importing a Graphic lets look at the next option on the list.

With the next option which will be the Create Word Model, you are able to without 3d experience create 3d letters fast and easily.

This video is part of a Mini-Series.
Next video covers Add 3d Models.

All right, guys, In today's video, we're gonna be looking at how to create 3D text within print up. But before that, let's have a quick intro first. So today's video can be found on We make short and easy to watch problem solving videos and we also have the updates. Otherwise we're back into the programme. So now, in the previous video, we looked at how to import some DXF graphics or the NC as well. Now we're gonna be looking at our second method of getting a 3D model in here, and that is to create text. So we can now, um, make our own. So that means we don't need to go into any other programme, which is convenient. So if you don't have any experience regarding, uh, making DXF files or um, some classic STLOBJ 3D modelling, then you can simply go right on the programme and make some files. So then what I'm gonna do is I'm just gonna add something from our model main menu. So if you wanna go to main menu, go model and then you'll see we have this option here. Create word model So when I click that it will pop up this dialogue with a few different options. Now, on the right here, we've got a preview of what's happening. We have our font right on top. We've got italic thickness, um, the actual letter and then a few settings at the bottom. So what I'm gonna do is let's just add a so you can see here. We've got a letter popping up now. Currently, it only works for one letter, so I can't add more at, uh, at a time. I have to. After it, add another letter and then we can go from the top one. Select the font. Got a few different ones here where you can choose from. And then, um, I think I'll go with this one. Keep it fancy. Then we have some options where you can make it italic and thickness. But keep in mind, this will only work for certain font. So, like on this font, if I go italic, you'll see it turns the text italic or if I got thickness, so it it's kind of like making a bold You can say so. But for my sake, uh, case, I'm gonna take a top one and just add a thickness. Then under that, we have a few different settings. So we've got the model size is the overall size this thing gonna be? Then we've got the model height. At the moment, it's 40. Let's make it 30. So it's a bit lower than the previous one we did. And then we've got the chance for distance, height and per those two ones we're gonna be looking at is three or two. We're gonna be looking at it in another video as that is relevant to the other model or importing EXF as well. So now what I'm gonna do is I simply say, OK, we'll generate our letter. And as you can see here, we've got our letter in. I'm just gonna quickly scale this up so we can have a better view of it now. It has already done a form of chambering and that we Yeah, I would have preferred if it didn't, but yeah, I did so to fix that, what I can do is I can simply just complete the litres. Then we go again. Model create word. I'm gonna get a change. The font. I'll do all of this quick thickness. And then I'm just gonna put the jam into zero and the height as well. 00. Say OK, there we go. We've got our model and scale it up so you guys can see what's happening. Yeah, don't worry, because it's red. I'll explain later what that means. So there we have our lettering in. So now you can use this to make a nice custom and design, Obviously, you probably want Make sure the letter is kind of like a relevant height. So unless you're going for something really tall like that but in most cases, it's got a print height limit. But yeah, otherwise, that is it. On adding actual custom text as 3D models. Like I say, the great part about this is you never have to really leave the programme. You can simply just stay right here and design have 3D, uh, lettuce or channel lettuce. But yeah, before we go on to the next method. If we go here to You guys will notice we've got a variety of different Softwares we do cover, and you can also isolate your search on the top or right. If you do not, however, find the training videos you're looking for, just simply go here, request a training video, fill in a form, and then we'll do our best to try and make that for you. But otherwise thanks, guys, for watching and cheers.
