Before spending too much time following the wrong path, I wanted to ask the community to give me a hint on the best way to do the following:
Similar to the image below, I want to add these signs/annotations to my scene.
(image credentials: Ngauruhoe - New Zealand by Michael Tzscheppan on Dribbble)
The requirements are that they can be placed in 3D space (meaning not shown on the foreground if occluded), crisp text, and probably the most difficult requirement: the size of the sign should adjust to the text length. On the other hand, I don’t need any click and mouse interaction functionality.
Babylon.GUI seems a way forward, but since I haven’t worked with it, I don’t know if this fits the bill. Any suggestions and perhaps even a playground showing how to adjust mesh sizes based on text length?
Any hints are appreciated.
P.S: the doc (The Babylon GUI | Babylon.js Documentation) refers to https://github.com/BabylonJS/Babylon.js/tree/master/dist/preview%20release/gui for the GUI library, but the link seems broken.
