PALM BAY, Florida - April 26, 2006 - VX Corporation, the pioneering developer of advanced, integrated CAD/CAM solutions for engineers and industrial designers, introduces 3D modeling support for True Type Fonts.
Fonts In 3D - True!
The ubiquitous True Type Font has been given new purpose by VX. Any True Type Font found on a user's computer is transparently converted by VX into a vector format for 3D modeling. Users simply select the font desired and then type text straight into the VX Sketcher. There is then a variety of tools to produce solid or surface geometry from the text. With VX, your sketch does not have to stay planar, it can be wrapped around any surface – thus designers can ensure that extruded text is held normal to the surface if required. Draft relief can also be applied to ensure there are no manufacturing problems.
Bob Fischer, VX Vice President Sales and Marketing, said "With this easy to use function, function, VX has transformed an awkward modeling problem into something that will help inspire designers to bring new ideas to life."

Modeling in VX CAD/CAM with 3D True Type Fonts
Product and industrial designers can use VX to "write" on model faces with any True Type Font. Furthermore, the "writing" can be wrapped on a curved surface, embossed or raised.
