How to make engraving

Hi, I have an extrusion of the sunflower but I don’t know how to “engrave” it or make an impression in the medallion. Please help! Thanks, Susansunflower for pk3.3dm (6.1 MB)

Hi @Susan_Hughes,

Your sunflower curves were in pretty bad shape. Lots of overlapping or open areas that made for some problem geometry when extruding them to use them as cutters for a boolean difference.

I cleaned them up into valid closed curves by joining them and rebuilding them where needed which allowed me to extrude them solid and do a successful boolean in this file. Hopefully that helps get you back on track.
