Creo 3.0 Sketcher 'Text' issue

The text does not display and message is 'Sketched text produces degenerate strokes'.  I was able to sketch 4 different texts then the error message popped up.

Thank you in advance.

Re: Creo 3.0 Sketcher 'Text' issue

Which font are you using?

Re: Creo 3.0 Sketcher 'Text' issue

font3d.  What is confusing is I was able to create 4 different texts and then the error.

Each character is independent as to what it can do.

Taper extrudes are particularly vulnerable.

I too use the Font3D.

It is the most reliable of the outlined fonts.

Can you post an image of the offending text?

Are you using a different character in the 5th text compared to the others?  For use in sketcher - extrude, the strokes of the text need to form closed loops, and we've had a character or two that failed to do so.

And of course, PTC is fixing those for all the releases they were bad, right

Matthew, can you confirm some of those are in the FONT3D font?

I'm not part of the relevant group, so it would take a significant amount of time to research, which I don't have to spare, sorry.  I do know that I saw an SPR on such a glyph, and assisted in getting it to the right group.

Thanks for the reply, Matthew.

I haven't found issues in the FONT3D as yet.

Some of the others are notoriously bad.

That is why it was the 1st question I asked.
