I’m at a bit of bind here today. I’ve 3 days to convert a logo into a brass medal. It’s one thing to simply take a vector logo and simply extrude over a cylinder, but another to make it have a stamped or embossed appearance. Back in the day I once used Cinema4D which allow me to take a flat surface and balloon it up like a parachute. However, Rhino for all its precision offers no such method.
I’ve tried Drape, with little control over softening the edges of things, and I’ve tried converting to a mesh just to use the SubDivide feature — with horrid results, and I’ve tried to model every tiny shape and detail a bit at a time (a two week job at least).
So I’m hoping someone knows of a way to apply a blob of honey over a collection of extruded shapes to soften and blend the entire logo into a pleasing result.
Any ideas would be much appreciated.
I should add that the logo has different elevations for things…
