I noticed that when I googled it, an external electronic module attached to a cell phone . Probably all Iíll be able to afford .

Oh @MEBCWD , that looks fugly. So tell me, if you were to go in there
and make vectors out it, you would manually have to apply depth etc
to look like the coins John made?
Lol... when Rick mentioned scanning, I was in old school mode of scanning.
Not the new 3D scan methods. Those 3D scanners can be costly to get good
resolution and optimal results. I basically referenced that Trout tutorial
from Vectric. There seems to be alot of work going into making a 3D file,
your own that is. Man, I've got alot to learn myself here. Unsure if I'll be
using Aspire or Enroute. Thanks Mike I'll pay a little more attention to this.

I have made a few of these, even a couple out of oak which stain wonderfully. I don't have any pictures because as soon as I finish something the boss takes it. lol. Did you put the black wax on them, it really brings out the details.

Nothing on them except a couple coats of aluminum metallic paint.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Ronnie that was quickly made using the same technique as the trout. It is just a texture file but you do need to give it some thickness and use the smoothing filter on it. It won't work on everything but it is a powerful tool when used for it's intended purpose.

If I was making a model of this coin I would make a set of vectors for each element and then create a component from the vectors. Then I would sculpt the items to add more detail. It takes a while to do something like this but once you have it finished you can use the file for all kinds of things.

I understand Mike. Just felt like saying fugly today and it was a fugly day to boot.
Well im very much a vector guru and something like this would be a nice challenge.
The 3D sculpting part that is. I think i'll fire up the Aspire trial and give it a shot.
It's going to be a new thing for me soon so I'll be digging all I can.
