Writing text in Balder

Apr 19, 2011 at 5:16 PM


I am currently working on project, where I will show programatically created 3D model of product with dimensions. Is there any way to show text in Balder or do I have to create my own alphabet from lines?

I'd like to get something like this: http://www.ericsink.com/wpf3d/4_Text.html


-Many Thanks

what you could do is use a WriteableBitmap and render text into it, any control could be rendered into it, and then using the ImageMap system in Balder to get the writeable bitmap as a texture. I believe the SLARToolkit is doing something similar using Balder : http://slartoolkit.codeplex.com
