Question about embossed printing

Recommended Posts

Posted · Question about embossed printing

Hi, I would like to make a print, a 'drawing line' from a photo. When I put in the jpeg file into Cura, I only can choose ' darker is higher'. In former Cura-programs I could also choose 'lighter is higher'. Does someone know how to change it? It seems available, but the text is grey so I cannot choose it. 

Thank you in advance! Martine

    Hi @Framar,


    I'll think this function have been long gone..


    Why not use a paint/photo - shop program and convert the picture to negative, then you can manipulate gray tone as you want.


    By the way, this is the negative of your example.
