Sometimes it is necessary to add the text (engraving) to a certain surface of the 3D model. If you do not use the TYPE3-CAA, CATIA V5 / 3DEXPERIENCE add-on for text and graphics editing, simple text on flat surfaces can be added with basic functionality within the CATIA V5 Part Design environment.
The following example shows how to easily add a logo to the surface of a 3D model. To begin with, we will open a new 3D Part and create a tile measuring 200 x 100 mm, 10 mm thick
Then we open the recorded DXF File and copy the text.
Let's go back to the 3D model and create Sketch on the front surface in which we use the Paste or CTRL + V function to insert the text that we copied from the DXF File.
Then, using the Scale function, we scroll the text to the desired size and position it where we want it. Text can be increased or decreased
