Date to jit.gl.text3d but Vertical ?

November 8, 2013 | 1:07 pm

Hi everyone,

I need to get todays date to be display vertically instead of horizontal. I can get it horizontal, but vertically?
I tried using jit.textfile but I am not sure how to proceed any help will be appreciated.

Are you talking about rotating the text? If so, you can use normal ob3d attributes to do this.

If you want newlines to be displayed, its not super easy at the moment. This is pretty hacky, but maybe it’ll work for you. Basically you have to get some newlines in there by writing then reading in a text file to jit.textfile. Hopefully down the road we will have some improvements in this area.
