My nephew is a track star at U of VA and is coming into town for a meet this weekend. His mother asked me to make a sign of his head that she could wave around after she told him she would embarrass him from the stands as a “soccer mom” and he said “it’s not like you have a sign of my head to wave around” well what we did have was a Glowforge and some :proofgrade: Acrylic and some LED bases. So now we have a nice sign for her to wave around… 3D engraved the face. I used Photoshop to select his face (it was a group photo) using the Select->Subject feature then copied that to a new transparent workspace. Then saved the selection (selected the layer transparency) and converted the selection to a working-Path. Then exported the working path to ai as my cut line. around the png of the face (which I converted to gray-scale and inverted)
