Imprinting images to surfaces.

Recommended Posts

I have an image that i would like to cut out of the back of a phone case. It's basically a sketch with well defined borders and was wondering what would be the best way to do so. I currently have Inventor pro 2015(free as a student) and cant figure out how to accomplish my task. Is there a better program that is more intuitive than Inventor? I feel like it may be a bit overkill and that there's some other program that can do it much easier.

Here's am image of what i have so far: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0NkngkTIDmYUmFmZ0dvak5UNmM/view?usp=sharing

I imported it as a PNG and can't get it to emboss or extrude correctly.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
