I have a model of a spaceship and I would like to place a name on it. From what I know, I can't simply put text on it. What is the best simple way to do it? I have about 20 ships to name so this one would be the template for me. Thanks very much.
I would add a text object, turn it to mesh with ALT+C ,knife project it onto the ship and give material. But since you need to do it twenty times, with a different name each time I guess, you could use a macro/python script doing just this. NB. To knife project the right way your model must be in ortho view.
