Because everything I do is for modeling, I have generally only been concerned about shape. In the product I used to use, I did some pretty pictures but did not focus on it. It allowed me to set the color/texture for individual surfaces. But my understanding is that this is not the way things work in Rhino.
If I have something like this as a starting point—
—how do I go about making a pretty picture out of it? It is a giant closed surface (solid). If you had a 3d printer capable of high quality output and a 100" table, you could print one out.
I know this is a big topic but I am wondering from a high level on how to get started.
Here’s a simple one: What is the method for having different colors in different places?
Another: is is possible to do lettering?
