    I may have missed it when looking through the help files, and my forum searches have not returned any results.
    I am a relatively new user coming from F360 and FreeCad, is there anyway to model text in Atom, ie extrude/cut on an object?
    An example is this object that I intend to 3d print with various tolerances (0.025, 0.05 and 0.1) for the threads, ideally i would like the tolerance as indented in the surface.

    This video was prepared for Alibre Design, but the basic principle applies to Atom3D


    It is a rather old video, so shows toolbars rather than the ribbon - don't let that distract too much from the Sketch Text tool.

    Thank you DavidJ, I couldn't see for looking and it was staring me straight in the face all the time.

    Atom3D: In sketch mode, you can add text, and extrude..
