Does Anim8or have a tool that you can make 3D text? or is there a easy way to make 3D letters? ???

Sure, like this:  

Just create your text, then click Build > Extrude...

Actually, Kyle101, you should really read the manual, try some of the examples, and experiment.

I am also a newbie.read the manual its very clear in the manual


click on the A in the object tool bar = highlight
click on your screen = highlight text icon ..type text..click build ..extrude = done ;)
click on build ..ungroup if you want to treat them as individual letters and not a text object

read the manual its very clear in the manual :o
