Hi,

I'm looking to cut a 3D model of a helicopter into the top of some oval boxes, similar to what is achieved with a crab here.The problem I have is that, in any of the views of the 3D model that I'd like to cut, there's too much variation in Z. The result being that when I flatten the Z down to 8mm, there's too much of the model proud of the surface. I suppose what I'm really after is less of a 3D effect, and more of an embossed effect. Is this possible?Additionally, is there an easy way to create a final V-carve toolpath to highlight some of the finer details if it's needed (eg edges of the windows)?

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
