Since a few people asked for how I created depth maps in 3ds Max I added a Youtube video showing how to do this (turn on CC for details). The end results are about the size of quarter. The left was 1/8" maple HW and the right is 1/4" draftboard.

Here it is double-sided on .44" cedar (2 passes on each side)

(the hanger snapped off when I tried to clean it)

i almost feel like you should cut holes where the eyes and nose are and turn it into a button.


#7

that would be great if I had printed it smaller… this one is 2.5" in diameter.


#8

I second that, they would (wood?) make great buttons! Or cabinet pulls :slight_smile:


#9

That is an awesome idea.

I hope you don’t mind that I played around with the skull JPG.

Two 0.5” buttons from .125” white PG acrylic.

Left standard 3D engrave, right with speed bumped up from 400 to 505.
