Guess I’m just needing to clarify my own thinking on this, because I’m not exactly sure how this might work…or even if it can work this way.
Say I wanted to theoretically use a gradient to create a bevelled edge or a chamfer on a thin cut (1/8" material or less). Couple of questions:
Would a smooth continuous gradient applied as shown below result in either of the edge profiles underneath? Can we even do this?
Or would we need to prepare a stepped gradient with a stepped resulting cut like this one?
This is lagniappe as far as I’m concerned - I just want to make sure I understand the limitations of the 3D engraving process before planning a whole lot of files around it. Seems to me it would be choppier on thicker materials if we need to go with steps, simply because there are fewer standard grays available, and we might not be able to do it as deeply, so i was planning to keep the edge treatments to 1/8" or less.
No rush…just curious.
