Rotate, letter, rotate!–SolidWorks

I am sure you didn’t get whatever is written above! So read on!
You know how to enter text in sketch. You know even how to assign rotation to the text characters up to certain degree. But what if you need to apply different rotation angle to each letter? Well, you can use the text tool for each character one-by-one and assign rotation to it.
The ‘tip’ part: Instead of doing that, you can rotate each character differently of the text while creating it. Just observe the syntax the software is using to apply rotation. As an example, say you want to write ‘SolidWorks’, with its letter rotated to 90 degrees. So you apply rotation and modify the default 30deg value to 90deg.
So to apply different angle to each letter, just write down the following and you’re done.
Write each letter in between <r’angle’> and </r>.
Note that you can even enter negative angle as well!
That’s it for now. Come back soon for more!
