Pro/E's solid geometry text is not a high point, but it does have some good
functionality that will get you through most of the requirements for text modeling.
Text can be built into just about any feature that will allow multiple
closed loops in sketcher including protrusions, cuts, etc... It can
also be used with non-solid features like curves and cosmetics.
To create it, simply enter sketcher and use SKETCH > ADV
GEOMETRY > TEXT then follow directions. After entering
the characters, you will be asked for a box. This is like the rectangle
tool. Just put one in the general area you would like to see it,
then you can modify it later. If you want multiple lines of text, simply
repeat the process because Pro/E treats each line of text as a separate sketched entity.
Once text is in the sketch, you will need to locate it. This
is done with dimensions in the same way you dimension a point. (See Fig. 1)
