Judge Dredd is well into my top 10 movie list.

This is mostly an example of the 'forge (specifically a PRU) doing 3D Engraving.

Unfortunately, I don’t know where exactly where I got the STL as it was in my ‘movie props’ folder from about 3 years ago. But I passed it into Blender to get a depth map. Then into Photoshop to remove the solid black background and to tweak the mapping. Then imported that into illustrator so I can create an offset path as a cut line. Exported that out as an SVG and off to the races.

Close up of the tube doing its thing.

I like the way it came out so I made another one 20% bigger.

Then I wanted to see what it looked like in acrylic.

Dredd Approves.
