    Im not sure where I am going wrong. I can not seem to get any fonts to display correctly with the 3dtext gameObject.

    I have followed the directions on this site but get a distorted result. See attached image.

    Any ideas on what is going wrong?

    It looks like you are not dragging the font material on.

    Open your 3D gameobject and drag your font into the slot and then open the font in the project view - you should see a material. Now, back in your font gameobject you should see a material - drag the material from the font onto this.

    Hope this fixes your issue,
    Matt.

    The other option is to highlight the font you want in the Project view when you create the 3D Text. This will give it the correct font.

    I have had a similar problem to you when trying to change the font after the 3D Text is created.
