Don's name plaque employs a variety of techniques. I started with a dome relief, then modified it by adding a raised center. I used an enlarged sandblasted woodgrain bitmap from the TEXTURE MAGIC collection to add a cool texture to the piece.
Then I built a cross section of rope which we would use for a border.
I thought it looked a little plain and so I imported the splotches bitmap and added a little texture to just the letters.
The file was now ready for tool pathing and then was sent to the MultiCam. It was machined from 1.5" thick 30 lb Precision Board.
