Struggling to model this. I can model a contour, and do one of two things:
- “cheat” and overlay a line vector on a height map in illustrator - and set the line opacity so it roughly matches the right depth when it converts in carbide.
Problem with this is the line isn’t a smooth cut, it’s just treated as part of the 3d contour and ends up losing or degrading the edges.
- I can import a dxf or svg of the vector and subtract it from the 3D model. Same issue, plus I have to make weird extra paths so it closes the line segments.
If I keep the shapes separate, when I run an engraving option it doesn’t follow contour.
Maybe just beyond carbide create. Just hoping I’m missing some other option.
