Font Error when Exporting .obj from Maya 2018



I can’t seem to export an .stl file from 2018 that can be opened by any other programs.

So, I thought I would export an .obj and convert that elsewhere but the font type is not exporting clean.

I think it is because there is no geometry on any of the caps. How can I add geometry to the font/letter caps?

Or … how can I export a readable .stl?




tick “deformable type” it will take care of the ngons and triangulate the thing
