Well, it turns out you can get some very nice effects with 3D engraving using the Snapmarks…this little tile on Proofgrade hardwood maple looked a lot better with additional passes to sculpt the shape down. It was a lot less blocky looking.

It’s a flower. (And it looks better IRL, you can see the shadows.)


Unfortunately I burned through the Medium maple in a spot or two, so quarter inch material would be nice to get my hands on - I’ll have to try to find a supply online. (And re-run this one after making some adjustments to the files.)

Up close you can see the deep shaping…


And the non snapped draftboard prototype…


I can just see a lot of potential for some really great effects in the hands of someone who actually knows what they’re doing. :smile:
