Shrink Wrapped Text V1.0

This setup guide from www.3dnames.co will guide you through how you can create the following Shrink Wrapped Text using our Blender file.

We have designed this download file to be used by anyone, and you do not have to have any knowledge of using Blender as long as you follow this step by step guide.

We have made this guide interactive, with checkboxes to tick off at each step, so you can keep track of your progress.

Interactive Guide - toggle the switch on each step to mark it as completed!

1. Open Blender File

Download the Blender file, extract it somewhere and open up the ShrinkWrappedTextV1.0.blend file in Blender, we recommend using Blender V4.0.1 or higher.

2. Launch the 3D Names Panel

When you open the file - all you need to do is press the small play icon ▷ at the top - then in the 3D Viewport there will be a new Panel called "3D Names" - this contains all of the setup scripts to make this files effect work.

Step 2

As you can see above this is the new Panel that does all the hard work for us!

3. Edit your Text

Click the "EDIT ME" text in the viewport and press the "Tab" key on your keyboard to enter edit mode. Now you can type your own text, then press the "Tab" key again to exit edit mode.

4. Resize your text

Use the "S" key on your keyboard to scale the text to the size you want. You can also use the "G" key to move the text around. Make sure it fits within the Red guides.

Step 4

5. Run Scene Setup

In the panel, press the "Run Scene Setup" button. This may appear to pause/freeze your Blender for a few minutes while it sets up the scene (which is completely normal) - but once done you will see your text shrink wrapped

Step 5

6. Rendering

You can now render your scene by pressing the "F12" key on your keyboard. If you want to render the animation, press "Ctrl + F12" (or "CMD + F12" on Mac) to render the animation. Files will be saved to the "renders" folder in the same directory as the .blend file.

7. Changing colors of the text

To make your life even easier we have added four buttons to control the text colors, choose from Blue, Yellow, Aqua (arguably Green) or Pink.
