I'm going to be doing a fair amount of 3d bar charts, which need their number written on them in the render.

Is there away to just make one box, duplicate it in Layout a bunch, and give each one a value which gets "written" on the box and scales it's height?

Better yet, can I somehow do this automatically with data from excel?

I don't like the idea of having to set each one up individually in modeler...

that would be a nice feature. I can't think of any way to do what you're asking. If it were me I would make on image map that matches the bar chart modeled in LW and then just type my numbers onto my image map and slap it on the side of my model. Seems that would be the easiest way. Someone may have another suggestion. I'm sure an LScript could be written to do this with little problem.
