I'm making 3D text, I got some problem when I added some text and converted the text to mesh and extruded them, here is the step : 1.Add text 2.Converted to mesh 3.Extruded the text

Followed by the broken text screen cutenter image description here

I don't know why this happened, I tried to used another way by extruding the text in the object data propertied panel then converted the text to mesh, but another problem found that the top and bottom surface of the mesh is not connected the the mesh, which means a single letter consisted of 3 part, and what is the reason behind this and how to fix this

Thanks for explain to me the reason of the two issues I wrote above

There is no need to convert text or curves to mesh to extrude.

Curves converted to mesh will en up in bad topology most of the time... If there are overlapping segments then you will have errors like the ones shown on the question.

Use the Extrude settings in the Geometry section of the text controls in the properties window.

And please don't use photos from your phone, use screen captures, they are more readable

  • $\begingroup$ I want to split the text to single letters, I followed the tutorials which directed me to convert text to mesh, I want to know why and how to fix and it is good to know the reason for such issues $\endgroup$ Sep 7, 2020 at 15:44

    $\begingroup$ you can still do single letters. Curves converted to mesh will en up in bad topology most of the time... If there are overlapping segments then you will have such errors. But refer to your "tutorials" otherwise. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ If you want to seperate the letters you can: 1. Add text 2. Extrude 3. Convert to mesh 4. Add the remesh modifier (sharp + octree depth <7) and apply the modifier 5. Go to edit mode, press "p" and seperate by loose parts $\endgroup$ Jan 11, 2023 at 19:45
