• Create Text for Subsurface Laser Engraving

    Blender can produce text for Subsurface Laser Engraving that is superior to using a bitmap. By extruding the text and then arraying it on top of itself it is possible to go beyond creating the extra layers required for bright text - the faces on the sides of the letters will be engraved making the edges appear crisp.
  • Two Tone Non Photo Real Shader

    Blender is capable of shading objects in a stylistic manner. This tutorial shows how to shade objects using two tones to mimic the style of 2d vector art. The advantage of using a 3d package is that it is possible to alter the angle of the lighting by moving a lamp instead of tediously drawing new shading by hand.
