Improving performance embossing from picture

I wanted to emboss a picture on a surface from a picture. I did so, but the performance is very poor (around 30x30 takes hours, 176x110 has taken 36 hours so far). I'm doing it by creating a box for each pixel then fusing them all together. Sure, there are 20K boxes (well, 40K since I have to do it ...

Re: Extruding along a 3D path (Solved)

Thanks Chris_G, both of your techniques worked great!

Ruled surfaces. Hmm. I didn't research what those were when I saw passing references to them. OS: "Fedora rel...

Extruding along a 3D path (Solved!)

I have a 2D shape that I would like to extrude along a 3D path. I tried a number of methods, and nothing worked. I've created a wireframe of the 3D object, but I seemingly cannot create faces that are not along planes. I tried makePipeShell and makeLoft (possibly incorrectly) but the resulting objec...
