Tried to figure out how 3d engraves worked today and I have made… no real progress. Here’s 4 attempts (across two images):
Everything is basically flat. It’s possible the scorched one had some 3d-ness to it, but it’s so charred it’d be unusable for anything other than a test. (I forgot to move something in the GFUI, so the test on the far left is two jobs on top of each other)
These are the two files I’m using:
One was an object I made in blender, then turned it into a depth map. The other was a .ply I imported into blender then turned into a depth map (both following this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oqpDqKpOChE). Saved both as png.
The material is a piece of scrap wood I got from the bargain bin. Not sure what it is.
I had “Vary Power” on. Min power was always set to 0. I tried speed at 1000 and at 500, and power ranged from Full to 100 to 75.
Very confused about what to try next. I’ve read about 15 threads on the forums about 3d engrave, but haven’t gotten any insight into what I’m doing wrong.
