Give life to letters! Create beautiful 3D font for your art, game, brand, logo or poster. Whatever you need, with VECTARY you can easily make it happen.

Use the 3D text add-on and choose from a list of over 1200 integrated Google Fonts. Customize them with 3D modeling tools and adjustable materials from the library.

How to create 3D text

  • Open Vectary 3D editor.
  • Hover over the Box icon in the header and select “3D Text”.
  • Edit the 3D font in the properties panel on the right.
  • Add lights to the scene, change the environment, materials or add more objects from the library.
  • Adjust the view by rotating the scene or use gizmo to rotate the text itself.
  • Download your instantly rendered 3D typography scene as PNG. Just click on the Download image icon at the bottom of the scene.
  • Share your design or invite team members to give you feedback in the form of a 3D comment.

Tip: Change the text at any time during the creative process. When you convert it to geometry in the properties panel, the text can’t be rewritten. However, you can edit each of the letters separately in the “Edit” mode.  Convert it to geometry by right click > "Convert to geometry" (shortcut E). Enter the edit mode by double click or right click on each selected letter > "Edit geometry"

Tip2: Need a custom font? Import your text as an SVG file and convert it to 3D easily. Read more>
