The flat oval relief was then modified by dooming up the centre portion.
To add texture with a batman I imported the bitmap which sized automatically to the bounding box. I resized it so that the finish bit ( 1/8″ – 0.125″ diameter) would easily fit into the black portion which would remain low. I did this by eyeball using the border of the lettering (which I knew was 1/5″ – 0.2″ )
Then I added a second texture to the relief. To illustrate what I selected I did this screen capture. The outside oval is the base relief. The next blue one in is the raised dome. With both selected the texture will only go inside this area. Inside that is the lettering border in red. The red means the texture won’t go here. On the areas inside the red (blue lines inside the letters) the texture will again be placed.
Then the file was blasted off to the MultiCam and the machine did it’s magic.
