I needed to make some aleatoric boxes for a client and found the existing workarounds a little fiddly, so I made a simple font for drawing boxes:
Anyways, I called it AleBoxes, and it’s really easy to use: AaaaaA draws a short box, BbbbbB is taller, and it goes up to WwwwW, for whatever height you need. I find 24-point font works the best for me, but you can adjust the point size for different line thickness. Of course you have to turn off collision avoidance on that text object, or globally for the whole project.
It made short work of this project for me, so I’m sharing it here in case it’s helpful to others. If you have any ideas as to how I can improve it, let me know. You can download AleBoxes here.
