Description

Using the well-known public domain Hershey font descriptions, it is easy to produce machine-independent, scalable graphics text at user-specifiable angles---on screen as well as in print. This 2D text can then be projected onto various Mathematica Graphics3D surfaces. One advantage of using Mathematica is that about 20 lines of Mathematica code have the same functionality as about 20 pages of C code provided with the font descriptions. Reprinted from the Mathematica Developer Conference, Champaign, Illinois, April 1994.
