Designs of most models include text, such as model numbers, dates, place of manufacture, brand names, and logos. Text is manufactured into parts using stamping, engraving, or etching methods.
You can add text boxes and geometry-aligned text to sketches. The options you set specify text orientation, font, size, color, stretch, and so on. After creation, you can edit both the text box and geometry-aligned text while in the active sketch. The text change is reflected when the feature, such as an emboss feature, updates.
The box contains linear text that you enter in the Format Text dialog box. You can move, constrain, and resize the box within the sketch, using the upper left corner of the box as the reference point.
Unlike the text in a text box, geometry-aligned text is fully constrained to the selected geometry on creation. The text is not limited to a linear configuration, but conforms to the shape of the selected geometry.
