Create a Sleek Metallic 3D Text Effect in Photoshop CS6


Create a Sleek Metallic 3D Text Effect in Photoshop CS6The 3D environment in Photoshop CS6+ provides a variety of options and settings to help you create amazing 3D text effects easily. This tutorial will show you how you can play around with the different settings to create a simple, yet sophisticated, metallic text effect.

Tutorial Details

  • Program: Adobe Photoshop CS6 Extended
  • Estimated Completion Time: 45 minutes
  • Difficulty: Beginner

Step 1

Create a new 1000 × 1000 px document. Set the Foreground color to #444343 and the Background color to #1c1c1c. Pick the Gradient Tool, choose the Foreground to Background gradient fill, and click the Radial Gradient icon.

Then, click and drag from the center of the document to one of the corners to create the background gradient.

Create the text in the color #cccccc. The font used is Sail and the Size is 330 pt.

The cool thing about this is that the 3D text mesh will still be editable. We will get to this later in the tutorial.

Step 2

To access the 3D mesh settings and properties, you’ll need to open two panels: The 3D panel, and the Properties panel (both found under the Window menu).

The 3D panel has all the components of the 3D scene, and when you click the name of any of those, you’ll be able to access its settings in the Properties panel. So make sure to always select the name of the element you want to modify in the 3D panel before you change its settings in the Properties panel.

Select the Move Tool and check its Options bar. You’ll find a set of 3D Modes for the tool to the right of the bar. When you choose one of those, you can then click and drag to perform any changes (on the selected element in the 3D panel).

Select the text mesh name tab in the 3D panel, then, in the Properties panel, change the Texture Mapping to Tile, and the Extrusion Depth to 500.

Go to 3D > Snap Object to Ground Plane, to make sure that the text isn’t inside the Ground Plane or floating over it.

Next, select the Current View tab in the 3D panel, and use the different Move Tool’s 3D Modes to move the camera so that it points to the text from above.

You can also use the 3D Axis to move the text around if needed (with the Move Tool selected). The arrows at the ends of the 3D Axis move the mesh, the part below them is used for rotation, and the cubes are used for scaling. The cube in the center is used to scale the object uniformly. All you need to do is click and drag the part you need to perform the changes.

Step 4

If, at any point, you need to change or modify the text, then you can simply click its name tab in the 3D panel, and click the Edit Source button down the Properties panel.

This will open a document that has the text layer, you can then make any changes to the text.

Here, the font Size is changed to 392.5 pt. Sometimes, when you change the text itself, or its size value, it might extend outside the document’s edges.

Sections if necessary. (Taking a photo will distort their shapes slightly.) Stitch the pieces together, lining them up using different layers. If you are going to apply a repeat pattern, you can use "Define Brush" or "Define Pattern". By having the different pieces on separate layers, you can arrange them the way you want. Save the original psd file with layers in case you need to go back and change something later and save the file for the printer as TIFF after flattening the layers (or check with your printer). Also check with the printer as to what resolution they want it. Don't know your level of sophistication with the process or your resources, so I don't know how much detail to go into

There are several ways to do it, but this is probably the easiest (if you have Photoshop CS2 or later):

1. Add that textured image as a new layer right above the text
2. Hold down the "alt" key and move your mouse between the layers. Click when you see a little bucket icon.
3. TA DA!

If you don't have CS2, this is another easy way:

1. Add that textured image as a new layer over top of the text
2. Do a "ctrl+click" on the thumbnail of your text layer. This will select an outline…
