Just to say that I've put a more extensive 3D2Relief phototutorial online at cnc4free.org today.. link to the 'gallery page is below.. and should spot it from there. Uses the female mesh from the 1st image below to generate the mesh in the 2nd image.
I plan on adding similar for V-Carving with gcodetools, Height-mapping with inkscape.. and New Raster Height-mapping methods for ANY image editor.... I want these online ASAP as this info is all very useful and it all fit's together.
Still waiting on some other things before I can get everything consolidated as the ebook / major site update.. and as I've been sat on a lot of this for over a year, I've decided to put out at least some of it.. see how it goes. ..
Anyway enjoy the tutorial... always interested in feedback....
JM:.. 1st time I've known anyone with their own string of islands
