I liked the Work from isaac budmen with his four WORD lettered Sculpture,
and his ... give it new life through new eyes and new authors ...
and read the comment 'Any 5 words sculpture?'

Then I decide to extend his Work (the OpenSCAD File) with ... to allow to print more Messages.

Hi, great app but can you change the font?

Hello wirlybird.
Good Question.
Use 'my' https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2157178 Text Font Test

Very good, but what parameters should I use to make the text vertical? Thank you

Hello camelman.
Use a slash '/' after each letter,
i.e. v/e/r/t/i/c/a/l
should work.

Try to type Jo/se/f, it will not make a J in customizer.

use lowercase Letters [a-z]
i.e. jo/se/f should work.

My top layer always burns a little when making these with PLA. Any idea what that's about?

Hi! Can you add unicode font support please?

Corrected Version from 04.10.2015 writes the other Lines now from top to bottom. Relevant for more than 3 Lines.

This is very good. If they are thin they make great Coasters....
