3D text disappears - text properties

Recommended Posts


searching for a little help about the following topic:


I've built a minimalist GUI using 3D picture control: when the mouse enters the control and moves,

a text is added close to the mouse position, indicating the coordinates of the point.

Problem: according to the relative position of the text object and of the solid, the text disappears

behind the solid, as shown in the pictures.

How to avoid it?

Thanks in advance

Thank you for the support,

actually I was able in the past to obtain, using try and error (no other way seems to be possible when dealing with 3D picture) to obtain the desired effect.

I lost my example ... and now I'm lost :-)

I'll try to remember, or I will replace the text object with a string indicator somewhere in the panel

      Anyone an expert in the (complex, poorly-documented) 3D picture control?
      I am using Text to label an axis (see image) inside a semitransparent open cylinder (actually a mesh with texture).  The axis (made of boxes) shows up through the cylinder wall, but the Text does not.  See how 7", 8" and 9" show up, but 10" and higher don't.  
      I cannot figure out why, or how to fix this.  Any ideas?

      I want to create a 3D simulation on the front panel, and i see we can use a 3D picture control or a simulator display control. It seems both of them can be used at the same position. What is the most important difference between 3D Picture control and Simulator Display Control?
