Create Text for Subsurface Laser Engraving
Text that is extruded and arrayed looks sharper when subsurface laser engraved than text that is in layers. This is because extruding the text creates faces that are in line with the viewers eye. These fill with engraved points that make the edges appear crisp. This tutorial shows how to create this effect using Blender.
SHIFT A >> T
Extrude the Text
Select the text tab from the Properties Panel and extrude it. Experiment with the distance for best results.
Array the Text
Go to the Properties Panel
and select the Modifiers tab and add an Array Modifier
adjust the count to 5
Change the relative offset so that it is 1 on the Z axis
