To create the moon I started with a simple domed relief.
Then I added a new bitmap, which will be part of the new TEXTURE MAGIC COLLECTION which I am currently working on.
Then it was on to the lettering border. I first created a flat relief 0.4″ tall. The height is arbitrary. I then created an offset vector I would use to modify the lettering border. I didn’t change the settings from when I created the moon relief and so the lettering border curved in the same manner.
Before I merged the lettering border to the moon I modified the moon relief by adding the lettering. It had to be higher than the lettering outline relief to show up.
I then merged highest the lettering border to the moon background.
The moon was then ready to be tool pathed and sent off to the MultiCam to be routed from a piece of 1.5″ thick 30 lb Precision Board.
