Did you know that AUTOSIGN software allows you to easily edit text and attributes of traffic or directional signs and then lets you convert them into a 3D model with just one click?

AUTOSIGN currently offers three different types of traffic signs:

    • traffic signs, based on national regulations, that cannot be edited.
    • traffic signs, based on national regulations, that CAN BE EDITED.
    • custom traffic signs designed by the user.

In today’s post, let’s focus on the traffic signs with editable text. These traffic signs are included in AUTOSIGN libraries and can be easily recognised by the suffix “_temp” in their names. These traffic signs contain editable text and require a slightly different workflow.


  • Run the Traffic Sign command
  • Select a traffic sign with editable text, with the suffix “_temp”.
    If there are no traffic signs with the suffix “_temp”, please make sure you have the latest traffic sign library installed!
  • Insert the traffic sign and define the position of the sign in the layout.
  • Once the position is defined, the Traffic sign editor The traffic sign editor enables you to customize the text, edit the content and the properties, and define text position within the sign. In this step, you can modify colours or any other aspect of the sign if needed.
  • When you are finished customizing, click on Save block to insert the customized sign into the layout. At this point, AUTOSIGN takes you back to the layout, where the 2D traffic sign already includes all the changes.
  • If you go a step forward and create a 3D model of the sign, you will see that the text is updated within the 3D model as well. The customized traffic sign behaves as any other AUTOSIGN traffic sign.
