Text along a curve

I’m tinkering around with a model solar system I’ve created in Unity. I’ve implemented some 3D Text (TextMesh) objects which follow each respective planet along its orbit. This works as intended, but I would like to also curve the text along the orbit’s path for the sake of aesthetic appeal.

The only possible solution I’ve stumbled across so far seems to be a $95 add-on called TextMeshPro which is a bit too pricey for what I’m trying to achieve…

Does anyone know of a way I can implement curved text into my project?

In case you still needed it, TextMesh Pro is now free, and it will be included into Unity Editor soon. :wink:

If you’re looking for a simple way to do it with Unity’s UI text, go for Curvy Text on Asset Store. It’s just 5 bucks and get you job done before you can spell curved text :wink: Unity Asset Store - The Best Assets for Game Making.
