Help for my degree thesis with text

Hi all,
I'm developing an AR application for my master degree thesis. What I must to do is to track a marker and display a Text over this marker. There are 10 markers and each marker must be linked with a unique fix text.

I had thought to make 10 trackables and make 10 3d models with text and the application is similar to ImageTarget example. But What I can't do is making in 3ds max (or other software) and export my models and texture...

This site is really good to find helpful resources about thesis. I think that's very effective for my study. I'm about write 10,000 words dissertation paper. I know it's not easy, for that fact looking for inspirational ideas. Thanks.

Well, we talked about how to export the model here: http://ar.qualcomm.at/node/2000880

You should be able to export your model as a .obj file and use that method.

To create the textures you'll want to use a process called "baking," where you take the materials/lighting/etc. you have in your 3D modeling program and bake them into a texture image that OpenGL can use. You'll also need to unwrap your object to get texture coordinates. Look into the process of unwrapping and texture baking for your particular software.
