Vincent Wagner of Studio Brot created a 3D model for a wide selection of latin glyphs of the Pilowlava font! Note that this work is not like a simple automatic extrusion. Vincent carefully sculpted every glyph, achieving the rounder and puffier rendering you could get. Note how the z-thickness of the strokes is not uniform, increasing and decreasing with the width of the strokes, but not linearly. The achieved effect is such as the one you would get by bending a metal tube. This work brings Pilowlava into the haptic world.
Those 3D glyphs have been modeled for subdivision. Each single glyph is made from 76 to 786 polygons. This work is released under the Free Art License, meaning that it's freely usable for any personal or commercial use as long as you credit its author, and modifiable as long as you share the modifications under the same license.
Files are available under the .blend .c4d .fbx and .obj formats.
