I would like to distort a Text3D in order to apply it some nice dynamic warping effects.

Is there a way to access its points ?

Thanks.

No. In previous releases we had considered putting a getTriangles() method on Text3D or Font3D that would return the tessellation as a GeometryArray, but it was never high enough priority. I'll add that to the list for 1.4 so that we can at least discuss it again.

Many thanks Kevin,

I am dreaming of elastic bouncing text etc.
Low level access to the Text3D geometry is definitely an important feature I miss in the current version.
