Export 3D geometry to 8bit bitmap for laser cutting


I need to be able to convert 3d Geometry from a scan to an 8 bit bitmap (256 colours) for laser cutting. The company doing the cutting insist on the bitmap format and the company doing the scanning can’t provide a bitmap.

Anything that will convert a 3d model to an image would be a good start. I can change the format to bitmap in Photoshop afterwards.



have you an example?

Leigh wants a heightmap produced from the scan (mesh) for laser engraving.
Here’s an earlier thread:
