Iris 0.6.0 added support for different fonts. Until now, users were able to export text, but it would always default to an arial like font. Font support is experimental and has some caveats:

So, given these limitations, how does one add a font?

  1. Go to the Facetype site.
  2. Click on the ‘Browse’ button. This will bring up a dialog to locate a font file.
  3. Locate the desired font file on your system, and accept.
  4. Ensure that ‘Generate a JSON File (.json)’ is the selected option.
  5. Click on the convert button. This will bring up a prompt to save the file. You will want to save this in your Iris resources folder:
    • Windows: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\McNeel\Rhinoceros\5.0 or 6.0\Plug-ins\Iris (some guid)\<some version number>\Resources\fonts
    • macOS: /Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/McNeel/Rhinoceros/MacPlugIns/Iris.Mac.rhp/Resources/fonts
  6. When setting text in Rhino, choose the font style that corresponds to the coverted font.
