How to deboss an image


Debossing an image

Applies to:

  • Import Bitmap
  • Map Bitmap to Plane


1. Get started with importing your image (png) file using the Import Bitmap block (this block is a beta block)

  • Add a Map Bitmap to Plane block
    • Insert the Import Bitmap block in the Bitmap field
    • Create a Plane
    • Choose your Interpolation type, Length, and Width


2. Drag a Scalar Field (Alpha, Blue, Grayscale, Green, Hue, and Red) chip from the Planar Image_1's properties panel into the Notebook. The chosen field is what will be debossed in further steps.


3. Create the geometry for the image to be debossed into

  • Add Box of Length 10mm, Width 10mm, and Height 2mm

4. Deboss the image

  • Add Offset Body
  • Insert Ramp in the Distance field
    • Scalar field: Grayscale Values
    • In min: 0
    • In max: 1
    • Out min: 0mm
    • Out max: 0.2mm
    • Continuity: Geometric (CO)

5. Boolean operation to remove the excess material and combine it with our initial geometry


And that’s it! You’ve successfully debossed your image
