3D text Thank You for Wired Insider

I then proceed to give myself a crash course in 3D design using AutoDesk Inventor (free for students). This guy's video tutorial series is great: youtube.com/user/robcohee
Anyway so this is a Thank You to them for being awesome and hosting such a great contest. I encourage people to give their blog a check out. I am certainly a loyal reader!
I'm a little stumped by Inventor as it doesn't let you extrude text directly. I had to 'reverse emboss' it onto an existing 3D object, then 'cut extrude' another background 3D object to remove the one I had to create to emboss text. Kinda backwards it seems to me. Does anyone have a better solution for 3D text in Inventor?

Not sure what version of inventor you are using, but you can extrude text in Inventor 2010 and later (possibly also in older versions, I don't have one to verify with). When you go into sketch mode use the "Text" tool to write whatever you want, then exit sketch mode, select "Extrude" and click on your text and it will extrude it out for you.
Hmm, with zero shells, the letters are now filled in, but the inside of the 'D' and 'R' in WIRED are hollow now. Any idea why?
