Embossing/imprinting text on a sphere?

Hi Dan,

Just a slightly different approach.

Following your path, you could drop a step by boolean out the text from a sphere (for sunken text), then add a second sphere inside the first, that would make the depth/ curve on depth correct easily.

For extruded text, then create text + a sphere that is the size of the finished sphere+size of extruded text, then use boolean isec to create the curved text, then add that text to a sphere of correct size(for the finished sphere).
