Default yep

sjurick, it worked! i guess it had something to do with the nonmanifold geometry, but i'm not sure. when you create polygon text in maya, it creates a flat text. extruding creates 3d text. when i deleted the faces on top and on the bottom of the 3d text, boolean difference was not a problem anymore. i am not sure if extruded text is nonmanifold geometry, but it certainly pointed me in the right direction. thanks!

My pleasure. Glad to see that something finally worked. Actually if you deleted the faces on the text on top and bottom, leaving just the extruded "walls" of the text, I hadn't thought of that so I learned something new too

Keep up the great work on this model and send some more posts when you get further along.
