    Note sure what you mean.

    Maybe you mean:

    - create 3D models of letters
    - display said models.

    If so, well, that's what you do ... make some models and render them

    Re: 3d fonts on linux

    I want to create them dynamically on the fly within my application, from truetype outlines... not bitmap files. Basically, I want to set up a input box for text and let the user choose the font/bevel/extrusion...

    any thoughts?

    Theres also a project called GLF, but it uses its own font files, much simpler than gltt though
