I have been trying to 3D engrave the topography of Arizona but can’t find the 3D engrave option. Here is a photo of the image/DEM and the selections I get when I try to engrave it. I have tried putting the image in a svg file, a pdf file and just the plain image produced from the DEM.
And my understanding is you can get the 3D effect on others using manual settings with “vary power”, but the effects may not be as predictable as the Proofgrade “3D Engrave” settings on the appropriate Proofgrade material.
That’s correct. It is basically what the PG 3D Engrave is doing under the covers. It just only offers it when they can give somewhat predictable results. The problem with stuff like plywood is that you’ve got more than one material that will react differently to the same power. You could create a depthmap with this in mind though so you can choose which parts are in the top ply and what is digging into the layer beneath.
I’m glad to see that it worked out! Thanks for letting me know. I’m going to go ahead and close this thread - if you run into any other trouble, please start a new thread or email email@example.com.
