View Full Version : 3d relief

hello does anyone know where I could get some 3d relief images for free. I'm looking for something that I could import into rhino and maybe put some lettering around it and then mill it out on my router. I'm just looking for something in the OOOh Nifty :) category to impress my fiends and everyone else that thought that hunk of metal in the garage was the result of mental lapse and poor judgement. Does anyone have anything like that that they would be willing to share? thanks

Here's an image your could make a surface with. I played around with it a bit tonight, and with playing around with the settings a bit (heightfield from bitmap) it could look pretty cool.

I used to have several pretty cool images that I think you would have enjoyed, given your location. But somehow managed to lose them a while back.

**EDIT**

Guess I should mention this comes from a program called AudioGrabber. Used for 'ripping' audio cd's for making mp3s

Oh Shoot! You did ask me this and I totally forgot!!! What was the relief that you wanted from me?? Or I think it was the G-code file you wanted.

Hi home cnc. Ive seen some of your 3d reliefs there pretty cool! I'm not looking for anything specific just something that would be neat to mill out in walnut and show people (and show myself ) I completed my router about a month ago and havent tried anything really artistic on it yet. I wouldnt need the g code because I have visual mill basic and rhino 3.0 so all I would need is just the 3dm or in whatever other file form for me to import it into rhino. I want to put some lettering or border around the image. If you have anything that you would be willing to share that would be much apreciated. Im finding alot of 3d models for free on the internet but nothing that is a relief, which brings up another question... Nearly all the free models on the internet are true 3d images not 3d reliefs is there a way to turn them into 3d reliefs? meaning the z plane would only have, lets say, 1/2 inch thickness. there are some pretty cool 3d scenes on the net that I would love to mill into something solid but they are all true 3d scenes not reliefs. thanks

I took about 10 minutes and built you a relief to play with. See picture below. The file is an STL format. It loaded into Rhino fine.

That was built from the 3D clip art that comes with ArtCam pro. It is very easy to pick and past 3D reliefs to create a totaly new relief.

I am very impressed with how this art is done on C.N.C. . Just a simple question: Do these shapes come from images, or even a scanned image, then some kind of software can tell the movements needed to "CUT" this shape? (In simple english) Or is each outline layered and created such as in CAD programming creation or import solidworks? What I really would be neat if there is a way to scan an image then download it into a machine without defining it's shape? Is the Technology that advanced yet?

Hi there,

In answer to your question.

The models are derived from digital image sources. Images are edited using simple heightmapping principles. White is high, Black is low and levels of grey describe the range in between. Once the image is suitably edited it's processed to gcode in one of two ways.

FREE CamBam beta software will generate a toolpath directly from the image based on user defined tool, stepover and dimension values.

Alternatively a mesh surface can be generated in FREE software like 3D Paysage or DMeshlite. A 3D mesh in wavefront .OBJ format is the result. This is then converted to an .STL file. FreeMill will generate the required gcode from STL files, again based on user specified tooling and stepover values. It also generates a surface preview to check smoothness and detail.

A completely automatic method is not quite here yet. The many possible interpretations of content within any given image means the desired interpretation must be defined before software can perform the coding.

Hope this helps

I cut the crown posted by HomeCNC. Pretty cool stuff. This was my first attempt at 3D with my machine and it worked pretty well after a fixed a couple bugs with it and EMC2.

I generated the g code with CamBam Plus 0.9.8i. It resulted in about 140000 lines of code when done.

Cut time was over 5 hours running at 30ipm. I could probably decrease that and i also noticed that my plunge speeds were only 10ipm which I need to fix.

I cut it with a horizontal pattern and used a 1/8 end mill. There is some stepping but it is actually not that bad considering the square bit.

What fun!

To change most full 3-D to relief, just scale the Z axis down to a bearable amount. If Z is at 6.000 and you want 0.125 the ratio is 0.125:6. Or 0.0208 or 2.0833%.

They either have some problems with their site, are in the process of re-vamping it, or decided to pull it and simply left a site template in it's place. It's a shame because there was some top-quality files on that site, files that another site like vectorart3d would charge for.

The site owner posted a thread here New free reliefs site LINK (http://www.cnczone.com/forums/vectric/121724-new_free_reliefs_site.html) and I posted a link to their original site in that thread.

Here is a link to their original site again, and you can't view or download unless you register: 3drilievi LINK (http://www.3drilievi.com/forum/38-uploaddownload-rilievi.html)

Since it's in another language I kept 2 tabs open, the original, and the other in Google Translate (http://translate.google.com/) (paste the link and it will translate the entire site for you).

FYI: If you don't share files on that site, you will eventually get booted off.

Hi KisKZ,

Thanks for your very kind words.

I have a new way of height-mapping that is very easy.. It's very 'automatic' when creating shaped areas in the relief.. just based on colour setting... 'shaped gradient's are automatically generated.

I've aimed to show the benefits in this months files at my site.. so it's good news to hear that you liked the latest stuff....

Also... I hope things are going OK over at HobbyCnC... I saw you are working consolidating content to common format.. this is good news.. and also the use of 7Zip... keeps files compatible between sites... which is all good for the end user..

Thanks again for your complimentary and encouraging comments. Keep it up at HobbyCnC:cheers:

Danny

Hi there,

this may be new to Blender... but it's really just the same as using a few heightmaps....

see the images below...

the main 'trick' to this is use of the rendered depth map and alignment of the 'line' or 'toon' type render....... but as is clear below... it doesn't even really need to be an 'accurate' depthmap.. as your creating an 'interprertaion or 'posed' version rather than a direct copy.....


Hope this helps

Danny...

Great site, lots of models. But I have one problem, as I am not using ArtCam, I need to use the bmp, but there is lots of banding in images, which translates to harsh steps in relief. It seems like they are only 8bit bmp. Can you use another format or bit size to have smoother grayscale?

Or something a bit more 'import-fiendly' such as STL?

Hello!

The problem is limit of web site engine. :(
Usualy I make STL and depth map, but for example these last 3 modells are too big (more than 100MB per modell) in .STL format. I can upload maximum 15MB packages for download.
Other:
Nobody donate my site, my work (only one time I have a small donating), therefore I can not buy bigger background hotsing. I'm have not money, I do it only free for you, for help for HobbyCNC'ist.
I have lot of reliefs for the future, but I do not know, I can free share these or not without help.

Other:
I do not understand why nobody like rate these reliefs under download.
I'ts nothing. Do not need registration for it. But this information can be helpfull for other downloaders and helpfull for me, because I can use it for make other easyer cataloging method.
What do you think? Whay nobody do it???

With depth map other problem:
I can generate it only using ArtCAM pro 2008. This use only 256 level. Therefore result is not so good. I have AC 2010 but I can not use it because it is not work properly on my pure laptop. Maybe these nevest versions use more depth levels.
If you have other idea making smoother depth map please tell me and I will use this in the future!

Have a nice day!
