# How to set font size in points?

I am using Metric and want to type text to export as a STL for my 3D Printer. Is there a method of knowing or setting up the text size in points (pt)? In all other programs I select the size and know that I need a size of say 155, how can I do this in Blender? The scale I have as 1.000 if that's correct?

• What units are the other programs using? (points?)

• Yes, Points so I have 2 Different Text Sizes I use, 155pt and 255pt so I'm trying to do this in Blender.

Then in the Properties panel, N to show it. Type in 54.4825mm to the Y axis. Copy the scale from the Y axis to the X and Z axes. The text is now sized at 155pt.
