I was wondering if someone could please spare some advice?
I am trying to create either an embossed or engraved effect using a SVG file.
The image can be correctly positioned and wrapped around the front part of the lightsabre however I cannot seem to achieve either the relief or engraved effect.
I have tried keeping the svg as a curve, converting to mesh but to no avail. Extruding it and leaving it flat.
The SVG is in two parts the inner and outer ring, I have joined the two parts together to form one object and I’ve also tried keeping them separate.
After many hours of watching vids and reading I can’t seem to find anything which directly meets my criteria and I am at a loss to what to do.
Maybe I’m just about this in a completely wrong way or maybe at this stage I am biting off more than I can chew?
Being new to BlenderArtist I can only attach a single file and not the actual Blender file which gives the most info. With this I’ve opted for an jpeg although I’m not sure how helpful that will be; sorry about that.
I do have additional images, the Blender file and the SVG file prepared already should it required.
P.S. I’m new to Blender and 3D modelling (3 weeks) so my knowledge is pretty scant, I usually try and work things out myself but this has left me completely stuck.
